On Monday, December 17, 2007, I did something that would greatly affect my life. Or is that effect my life? Grammar mind fart aside, that’s the day I signed up for Twitter. Back then, it was just another thing I did because I was intrigued and curious. I saw it mentioned in an email from ezinearticles.com. It would take me quite a few months before I realized the full potential of this new social media thing.
Have I talked about this before? Probably. Regardless over the course of those 4 years, really in the last 2, I have met (yes, in real life) some great people and made some new friends. Heck, I’m writing this post from my new home that I share with a gal I met through Twitter.
Last night I had another fabulous Twitter experience. Look at this screen shot:
Pardon my geek out, but Mark McGrath replied to my tweet about him! OH MY GOD!! Could he get any cooler?!? I didn’t write it with the intent of him even reading it. I figure most famous people have their people tweet for them.
Damn. Has it really been 4 years? I still remember reading that article like it was yesterday. I guess I was doing the right thing when I signed up for Twitter. Isn’t it funny how a seemingly trivial act can greatly influence our lives?
Plus, you gotta love how much just mentioning Fabio has affected my writing. I cannot tell you how many people have found my blog by searching for him.
