The Power of @Twitter

May 8, 2019

After having written thousands of blogs posts in the mid 2000s, its been over five years since I have posted anything here.

If and when I write, I have been “writing” on Twitter.

When I signed up for Twitter in February of 2008, I thought it would be a much better platform for making new contacts than the other social media platforms available at the time which were primarily MySpace, Friendster and Facebook.

After years of building out my Twitter network, my initial thoughts about the potential power of Twitter to reach the otherwise unreachable have since proven correct.

How else could I – just a guy and his laptop – reach the CEO of Google let alone have him share my Wall Street Journal tweet with his two million followers?

In this day and age of instant communication, not from a traditional blog post.
