Life by Cynthia: Thank You Twitter

Thank You Twitter

I have to admit that it was a slow go for me to fall in love with Twitter. At one point I HATED it.  I now think that I am starting to fall in love. And the feeling just might be mutual. Please read my post from March where I talk about hating Twitter: The Ex Factor.  It will provide a bit of a back story for you.

I want to apologize now for that comment.  I was wrong.  I am still in the courting phase with my Twitter relationship. Twitter is certainly wooing me in ways only topped by my dear husband.  Twitter IS paying attention.  Just like my attentive hubby.  No, I'm not all about gifts but Twitter is certainly bringing gifts my way (not candy & flowers).   Tell me what lady doesn't like a thoughtful gift?  OK, I could say that Twitter has given me the gift of new friendships -  because it certainly has given me some wonderful connections.  I actually mean GIFT-gifts (BTW, I would gladly take candy & flowers if you're listening Twitter).

Two of the biggies:
  • I was honored with the gift of a BlogHership.  I got word of it through a Tweet, applied, and won!
  • I received a FREE HP Veer 4G SmartPhone by Tweeting my phone woes to the #ATTPhoneFairy.

So I owe my BlogHer '11 experience and my new phone ownership in great part to Twitter.  We're friends now.  But on the verge of bigger and better things.

I do (an have) thank BlogHer and ATT for the gifts that I received from them.  I just now need to thank Twitter for giving me the chance to connect with them. So, THANK YOU  Twitter - my matchmaker.

Today, one little Tweet ago...I wrote this Tweet and NOW:  I am getting a case of  Metromint water sent to my office.  Just because I'm vocal.  These peeps in my office better be extra nice to me if they want me to share!

Happy Friday all! Be vocal! And don't forget to say THANK YOU. Do good, get good.

  1. How fun! I didn't realized twitter had gift potential. I'm still on the fence with twitter. Definitely not in love yet, but we're not breaking up. And I don't think I thanked you--but thank you for the +1!!! For some reason I miss some tweets until much after that fact--arg.

  6. @ Grumpy Grateful Mom I didn't either. It took me a LONG time to figure things out & I'm STILL learning.

    @ Christine Spam is annoying for sure. Thank you for visiting and excited to read more about going Green.

    @ Asianmommy Thank you. I can't believe the luck I've been having. It's crazy. I'm grateful.

    @ Simple Homemaker Twitter can suck you in for time for sure! It's only recently that I've caught the bug for Twitter. I'm keeping it from becoming an out of hand addiction. Thank you for dropping by :)

    @ Stacy Donaldson Thank you for stopping in and leaving such a kind comment! I'm glad to have inspired. :) I'll be keeping in touch!
