Today is my twitter anniversary! 5 years going strong! I know that may not seem like much, but it means I am still active in it. I completely have a “love” relationship with twitter to the fact I have a “hate” relationship with Facebook.
Over 5 years ago, I opened IE (I wasn’t fan of chrome, but now I can’t imagine internet without it), typed in “twitter.com”, and clicked “signup”. I had no reason for joining twitter. I was in fact inactive for many months. Only towards 2012 end when I had lost interest in everything else I turned active in twitter and I don’t regret doing this at all.
The cool thing was that the followers I attracted are actual people! People RT me and reply to things I shared. It is awesome and I really made some good friends here. That’s when I found the real value of Twitter; being able to share and interact with a community of engaged people. Whether it’s for marketing or for something solely personal, that’s really what it amounts to, right? I’ve been shoot out a #FF unlimited times, I’m super stoked. When I recommend people via #FF, they always appreciate it. It’s just one more way to build and strengthen relationships.
Here is my first tweet

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
