I don’t recall what I had written in the original post. Probably a mix of curiosity and a token announcement of trying out a new social networking platform, but I had joined Twitter with some curiosity and expectation of getting a small audience of a hundred or so people for this blog. Twitter has greeted me with open arms and 14k followers and growing. Whatever I wrote at that time, Twitter has since given me an audience and companionship that has endured the years! I have found an interested, engaged audience, support in dark times, cheers for my joys, affection, information, learning and met so many people, I can’t even imagine the person I’d be without their influence on my thoughts. Not just a social media site, but a constant stream of ideas that enriches my life daily. Twitter. Happy 8th Birthday Twitter!!! Love you.
