Work has changed for almost everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents have become teachers, partners have become hair stylists and at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Okla., a security guard has learned to leave his post … to post.
Tim Tiller, the museum’s head of security, was tapped last month to take over the museum’s social media accounts during the pandemic shutdown. He says he was “brand new” to social media.

Hello Friends, my name is Tim and I am the head of security for The Cowboy. I have been asked to take on the additional duty of social media management while the museum is closed. I’m new to social media but excited to share what I am told is called “content” on all of The Cowboy’s what I am told are “platforms” including the Twitter, the Facebook, and the Instagram. My team and I will also continue to protect and monitor the museum and grounds. Thanks, Tim We are required to smile in our official photos. Send.
Tiller’s first post, on March 17: “Hello Friends, my name is Tim and I am the head of security for The Cowboy. I have been asked to take on the additional duty of social media management while the museum is closed. I’m new to social media but excited to share what I am told is called ‘content’ on all of The Cowboy’s what I am told are ‘platforms’ including the Twitter, the Facebook, and the Instagram. My team and I will also continue to protect and monitor the museum and grounds. Thanks, Tim We are required to smile in our official photos. Send.”
Tiller grew up on a farm, and visited the Cowboy Museum as a kid. He took a job as a floor guard in 2016 and worked his way up to head of security, hoping to be close to the cowboy lifestyle he loved so much. Under the quarantine, Tiller is very much a lone ranger. While the rest of the museum’s staff teleworks, he goes to work every day monitoring the building’s security systems and performing routine maintenance.
He also does a quick tour for his new followers and selects something from the collection to post. Tiller is often the only one onsite these days, roaming the halls and keeping an eye out for anything amiss — and finding just the right selfie.
Tiller’s first few posts took off across every platform, but especially on Twitter. “I was stunned,” Tiller tells Morning Edition host David Greene. People responded to his tweets marveling at how wholesome they feel. So he kept posting, unafraid to ask for help as he learned what a hashtag is, often using “#hashtag” to amuse himself.
But that didn’t mean he didn’t take his new role seriously. Early on, Tiller tweeted at his new followers: Twitter tips please. His fans responded with some — and they heaped on sincere praise, seeming to delight in the sheer normalcy of his brand during a time when social media feeds are anything but normal.
Like many under lockdown, Tiller gets lonely as he patrols the museum. “I’m used to seeing people in here, used to staying busy,” he says. “Walking around the museum with nobody here. It’s just … hard to get used to.”
Tiller says he knows we all need to adapt in this moment, and he’ll keep offering glimpses into the museum he clearly adores. Just don’t expect him to stop using his trademark #hashtag.
Launch of next generation Intelligent Media Reputation Crawler opens up new business opportunities – GlobeNewswire
Copenhagen, Nov. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — After extensive and successful testing, Hypefactors will launch version 4.0 of the Intelligent Media Reputation Crawler in the Hypefactors tech platform. This will benefit all current and future customers as well as open up new business segments and opportunities. The launch is planned for Monday 30. November 2020.
As one of few media intelligence companies in the world, Hypefactors has developed a proprietary advanced crawler technology, searching, finding, and enriching relevant media mentions in near real-time.
With version 4.0, more than 4 million articles are streamed in continuously, as big data and enriched using custom-built automated machine learning (ML) solutions. Add to this that more than 2 million social media posts, pictures, and videos are processed daily. The machine-learning-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables a unique level of automation, scale and precision combined that is unreported in science and business. This specialized application of AI on media data turns our big data into smart data for the users.
Highlights of version 4.0 are:
- Machine-learned advertisement detector
- AI-assisted automated detection of new relevant media sources
- Global media impact indicators
- Time-series analysis using AI-based publication date recognition across all languages
- More accurate impression/readership estimation
- Unmatched machine-learned reputation assessment
Through these updates, more media sources from non-Western regions have been added, incl. from Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia. Also, more niche sites and blogs have been added. This has significantly expanded our global media coverage.
The development providing users with the market’s most accurate streams of relevant media data, has been made possible using recent theoretical advances in machine learning, and supported by Google and Amazon cloud solutions through the Silicon Valley-based accelerator Founder Friendly Labs, in which Hypefactors was invited to join in 2019.
The milestone implementation will provide new business potential beyond the communications departments. R&D, Business Intelligence, Marketing, and Sales could benefit from injecting relevant and smart media intelligence data into their operations.
Hypefactors’ unique tech assets are now even stronger. The Intelligent Media Reputation Crawler vers. 4.0 strengthens the company’s platform and technological asset base and is expected to make a positive contribution to the commercial development of the company.

New York Mag's Nuzzi slams media 'cowardice' toward Biden, claims journos don't want to ruin social life – Fox News
In the latest episode of The Fourth Watch podcast, host and media critic Steve Krakauer told Nuzzi the one “positive thing” to come out of the media coverage of the Trump era was that it “grew some balls” regarding “speaking truth to power,” though he argued the media “went completely overboard” in doing so.
“At least they were tough instead of being friends with everybody,” Krakauer said. “I wonder if we’ll get that back at all … get back that sort of adversarial nature with even this administration that’s coming in.”
“Yeah, I don’t know,” Nuzzi responded in a clip that was widely shared on Wednesday. “I see that any mild criticism of Biden during the campaign and now, the response from the left is like, ‘Well, how could you be pointing this out when you pointing this out means that you don’t care or that you’re allowing, like, Donald Drumpf to get away with murder,’ right?
“And it’s like, ‘No! You can f—ing, you can care about more than one thing at one time, and just because I care about a lack of transparency from Joe Biden does not mean, like, I’m ignoring the fact that Donald Trump hasn’t conceded yet.’ You know? It’s possible to care about multiple things at once.”
Nuzzi then suggested that the media is full of people who want “approval” from “people in power” and who want to be “patted on the head and told that they’re doing a good job or that they’re smart.”
“It’s like this class of apple polishers who have always been part of the establishment and have always been a part of the elite, you know, who come from Ivy League universities and go to these institutions, these news institutions and are not really comfortable needling people in power because they want to be accepted,” she explained. “And I think that’s the wrong attitude to have in this industry.
“And that’s not to say, like, I know what the right attitude to have is … but … I think there is just a reluctance to make one’s social life uncomfortable, that it was easier in the Trump Era and it’s going to be harder in the Biden Era for reporters to not feel uncomfortable. And I’m nervous about that.”
The magazine’s Washington correspondent mocked reporters and pundits for “falling over” and “embarrassing themselves” during the Trump presidency and for “exaggerating things that didn’t need to be exaggerated.”
“Even in that environment, I saw tremendous cowardice [by] establishment members of the press,” Nuzzi told Krakauer. “Like the White House Correspondents Association has no spine, even in the Trump era. They absolutely suck at what they do. They are terrified at pissing off the Trump administration. And if that’s what they’re like when the president is calling us ‘the enemy of the people,’ I mean, what are they going to be like in a Biden administration? I’m like genuinely scared.”
Nuzzi went on to knock those who “scream at me” when she “humanizes people that they don’t like,” saying, “Well, I’m sorry, but people are f—ing complicated” and “if you say that, you’re just basically a Nazi sympathizer to a certain segment of the left.”
