Mitt Romney's call to cut funding for PBS during the first presidential debate  spawned a few sarcastic Big Bird Twitter personas . Now  the bicep of his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, is getting its own Twitter following, on the eve of the candidate's debate with Vice President Joe Biden.

@PaulRyansBicep surfaced after Time.com posted images of Paul Ryan working out. Ryan says he is a "fitness guy" and discussed his P90X workout routine with Politico's Mike Allen in this video. So far the bicep has just a few hundred followers. @PaulRyansBicep joins @PaulRyanGosling, which has nearly 65,000 followers.
