Shatner Dines with His Millionth Twitter Follower

Shatner Dines with His Millionth Twitter Follower

In addition to being Star Trek‘s original Captain James T. Kirk, William Shatner has taken to being an online personality on the social network Twitter. As part of his online campaign for his comedy tour and 81st birthday celebration, Shatner created a contest in which he would dine with his millionth Twitter follower.

Enter Troy Pound, a resident of Wagner, South Carolina, who became Shatner’s lucky millionth follower.

Shatner stayed true to his word and on Tuesday night, met with Pound and his wife after a performance of his current comedy tour Shatner’s World, in Charlotte, North Carolina. The couple were able to see the show and then were treated to a dinner with original Captain afterwards. The dinner was captured briefly on video to prove Shatner made good on his promise.

“As promised, the millionth Twitter follower,” said Shatner, in the video posted to his Youtube channel from the dinner. “We’re having dinner. Thank you, everybody.”

“Still in awe of last night’s dinner,” Pound tweeted to Shatner and wife Elizabeth after the meeting. “What a wonderful time we had. Thank you.”

Watch the video below.

Along with the Captain (@WilliamShatner), many members of the Original Series cast can be found on Twitter, including George Takei (@GeorgeTakei), Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) and Nichelle Nichols (@RealNichelle).

    That’s awesome. Say what you will about Shat, he’s a class act in my book.
