TORONTO, Ont. – Twitter was buzzing Friday afternoon with Prime Minister Stephen Harper tweeting about bacon.

Harper has a new Twitter buddy, this one lives all the way in Springfield, U.S.A.

Earlier this afternoon Harper replied on Twitter to the official account of Homer J. Simpson “MMM Bacon” with a YouTube link.

Homer Simpson then replied saying, “I see great minds think alike. And I, too, like my bacon super thick and bun sized!”
