Two years on TwitterPosted: 1 November 2010
Today, November 1, marks two years since I’ve signed up on Twitter. For the first couple of months, I wasn’t sure what I was doing. I didn’t know the basics of @-replying or retweeting. But as I grew comfortable with the service, the more I liked it.
For the most part, my twitter experience has been very positive. I’ll cite three generalized examples:
- Realizing there are Canucks fans who are, shockingly, more rabid and passionate in their love of the team than I am.
- Having interesting conversations that I probably might not have had in real life. That being said, meeting some people in real life is just as great, thanks mainly to the power of the tweetup.
- The support group from other runners on twitter is amazing. We all cheer each other on, even if it’s for the routine training run. I may not run with them in person, but sometimes it feels like it does.
And so, two years and more than 4200 tweets later, the fun continues…
