Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett is such a social media superstar that last year, the legislature named him the state’s Tweeter Laureate. He’s brought sexy back to the judicial branch with love notes to the Constitution and reminded today’s teens what “safe spaces” looked like to previous generations of combat veterans.
So as long as Willett is leading the way on social media, Texas ought to step up and set the bar for how the Twitter Laureate ought to make an entrance.
#SCOTX starts its new Term in 5 days.
The Chief has denied—again—my requests:
❌ smoke tunnel
❌ walk-out music
❌ t-shirt cannon

The whole thing could be done for next to nothing; there are high school football teams that are treated that well, so why not give the “forgotten” branch of government a little love? The Supreme Court has been known to draw pretty good crowds now and then.
@JusticeWillett Sounds like it's Kickstarter time!

@JusticeWillett But you will have the tear-through banner and the Supreme Court of Texas Dancers.

@JusticeWillett At least you still have the SCOT dancers! Love those shorts and halter tops but wish they were female and not male DPS cops

@JusticeWillett what about a hype man? Can you have a hype man rev up the crowd?

@JusticeWillett 52 amplifiers. Fifty-two. Don't settle for less.

@JusticeWillett If only every Supreme Court oral argument session opened like Iron Chef. And today's secret ingredient is…jurisdiction.
