Hasn’t Jim read the bible?
Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the disciple took her into his own household. (John 19.27, NASB)
This disciple is us, Jim! Us.
Not only this, but to imply that this is purely twitter is to deny the authority of the Tradition of Mary. Saints long before us venerated Mary properly. Zwingli had no real issue with Mary. And of course Zwingli’s disciple, Bullinger.
The veneration of Mary as our Mother is biblical and supported by Tradition up to and including the Reformers.
