|Diane Brogan and Deb Brown|
at NYC State of Now
How do you meet people and make friends while not leaving your house? Can a little old lady from Missouri connect, no more than connect...can she communicate with people without leaving her house? Well, I am one little old lady who knows is not only possible, it's a fun thing to do with Twitter and other social media sites. (Twitter is my favorite.)
I am writing this story on Wednesday June 20 from home. At this same time, I am following the "NYC State of Now" via tweets. Yesterday I had time to watch some of it via live-stream. Several of my friends spoke at this hang on, we're going fast event. One can tell from their smiles that Diane and Deb are having a grand time.
I have connected with people of all ages, different backgrounds, and a variety of interests. I read tweets and blogs on every subject from travel and tourism (Tourism Currents) to genealogy (AYWalton). All the people I follow are positive and kind. I do like that word..kind.
Let me explain the word bestest. Of course, it's not proper grammar, but does bring a sense of importance to the subject, yes? Want to see where I learned the word "bestest"? Please watch this Jeanne Robertson video on YouTube. There is no way I could pick just one "bestest Twitter friend". That would be like trying to pick your favorite kid. I also have a group of Twitter follows I like better than other though. (Mr. Bruce and I have 6 online kids the we kinda online adopted.)
Got to go now, I'll see you on Twitter.
