Punxsutawney Phil: Groundhog Day STAR Shines On Social Networks
Groundhog Day legend Punxsutawney Phil is an actual groundhog, who will make his annual prediction known in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, on Feb. 2, 2010.
Punxsutawney Phil is also a star on social networking sites this year, leading up to the big announcement.
There is a Punxsutawney Phil Facebook page with more than 4,500 fans and plenty of activity recently. He posted earlier today, "We're getting close to the big day! So what are you hoping for this year? Early Spring or Six More Weeks of Winter?"
There is also plenty of Twitter activity. Some unofficial Punxsutawney Phil Twitter accounts can be entertaining, such as @GroundhogPhil, who tweeted just moments ago, "You try forecasting underground while asleep, chump," in response to this tweet: "Prognosticating PunxsutawneyPhil has only been correct 39% since 1887."
