EXCLUSIVE: Tumblr Mascot Tommy Pom Reveals Online Crush
In an exclusive interview with The Fluffington Post, Tommy the Pomeranian (“Tommy Pom" to his friends) revealed that he has been using his employer’s blogging platform to send private messages to Maddie the Coonhound, a fellow Tumblr super star. While the couple has never met IRL, they have been romantically linked online for nearly two months, and Mr. Pom confirmed that they are “exclusive.”
"A few of us in the office suspected it," one Tumblr employee tells The FluffPo under condition of anonymity. “We always see Tommy looking at his Tumblr messages, then quickly switching to another window when someone walks by. He could probably be more discreet about it.”
Mr. Pom has accumulated tens of thousands of adoring female followers who will no doubt be disappointed to hear of his online love affair. But he felt the time had come to be honest with his fans.
