We report on observations of the {\gamma}-ray and optical photopolarimetric behavior of the radio-loud, narrow line type-1 Seyfert galaxy PMN J0948+0022 over a twenty seven month period. As this object has recently been suggested to represent a prototype of an emerging class of blazar-like objects, the observed properties are compared to those of blazars. We extract doubling timescales of roughly 4 hours for the optical and {\gamma}-ray bands. The rapid microvariability in the optical/NIR…
