In Dec 2008 I joined Twitter. At first glance I thought what the hell? It’s for people who are so bored with their lives, who have no jobs, looking for jobs or people who hate their jobs.
In Jan 2009 – 2 Followers! I just didn’t get it.
In Feb 2009 – 0 Followers – I thought a Facebook, cheap version-rip-off
In March 2009 – I actually started following the right people. The great Profs, Designers, Entrepreneurs, Change Agents,Programmers, Marketers, Writers and Internet Junkies…
I spent time reading, learning,smiling,crying, laughing and embracing. Embracing the power of social news, social marketing, social change, the social web = social community acceptance and love.
I have learned more in the past 3 months on Twitter than in my 5 years on the Internet.
