My 1000 Tweet

How do you measure 1,000 tweets?
  • Started Tweeting: February 1, 2009
  • I’m so embarrassed that my very first tweet was about TV.
  • My 12th tweet or my first meaningful tweet.
  • Number of employers I interviewed with before I got the job: 1
  • Number of interviews I had with this employer with before I got the job: 4
  • Number of places I’ve lived in: 3 and now finally in my own
  • Number of TIMES I looked at my place before making an offer: 2
  • Number of PLACES I looked at my place before making an offer: 2
  • Number of days from offer to the move-in date: 21
  • Concerts I’ve been to: 5 (Beyonce, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, BEP, and NKOTB, don’t ask.)
  • Number of trips: 4 Toronto, Tofino, Malahat and Toronto.
Things I’ve learned from Twitter: in less than 140 characters
  1. You can’t follow everyone who follows you, but you will try.
  2. Find people to follow on the public timeline. It’s like trying out a new author.
  3. Spread the joy. Respond to and retweet people when they say something interesting.
  4. Random Tweets from strangers can be more entertaining than Updates of FB "friends".
  5. Twitter makes you think succinctly. Sometimes, 140 characters is all you need. Sometimes.
