National Cowboy Museum's Tim finds superstar fans in Toby Keith, Sarah Silverman and Patton Oswalt

The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum's new social media darling, Cowboy Tim, is continuing to see his star rise.

As previously reported, the Oklahoma City museum, which is shuttered temporarily due to the coronavirus pandemic, launched a new digital campaign last week, appointing their real-life head of security as the new face of the venerable institution's social media.

With his folksy manner, including his still-evolving mastery of hashtags and his way of signing every post "Thanks, Tim," he became an instant favorite for people ready for some hope and humor in these troubled times.
