What has been your favourite tweet?

Today is my first year Twitterversary.  Okay, so I think I made up that word, but it is my first year anniversary on Twitter.

If you check back to my blog post of March 4, 2010, you will see that I started using Twitter that day as my “March forth” adventure.  — And no, I did not misspell fourth, I meant to say forth as in going forward.

It seems I am close to having tweeted 1300 tweets!  (Tweets are short posts made up of no more than 140 characters.)  I haven’t gathered a huge following thus far (under 200) nor do I follow a great number of others (under 300).  That compares to other Twitterers who have thousands of followers and in turn follow thousands, but I am satisfied with how it’s going for me.  It has been a learning curve and an interesting one, fun ‘meeting’ people, making connections, and seeing what they have to share.

Fridays are usually busy on Twitter with #Fridayreads when you post what you are reading that week, and #Fridayfollow when you post the @names of people you would like to suggest others follow.

I have been following some ‘famous’ people on Twitter, but mostly those who are involved in the writing world in some way.  I see it as another way to learn who’s out there and what they have to offer of interest to me.

My questions to you today are in two parts…

Part one:  If you use Twitter, what has been your favourite tweet that you read on there?  Why?  Was it funny? informative? helpful in educating you in some way?

And part two:  Since it is March Fourth, what have you taken on today as your March Forth adventure in moving forward?

Twitter is taking over my life!

Yes, it’s true.  I am spending too much time checking tweets posted by my Twitter Followers, and by other Twitter users I am following.  It doesn’t take long to do, but … do I have to do it so often?!  Geeeeesh!

It took me awhile to get the hang of it, and even now I don’t understand some things about using Twitter, but it certainly is a huge community in which to mingle – and that makes it fun and interesting.

I am ‘meeting’ such fascinating people.  So many writers!  I love it!  And I have connected (as a Follower) to some famous and not so famous (yet) Christian authors.  Gotta love that!  My horizon is expanding.

As for myself … well, I post the occasional tweet, hoping it will be of interest to someone who reads it.  Who knows?  I could be the instrument of God’s blessing to someone, or just make them smile.

But … I have writing of my own to do.  I have Valley Sunshine publication to catch up on – two issues, in fact – because I took a break during the summer.   Now I am so far behind in my responsibility, but with effort – and listening to the Voice of the One Who leads me – I will catch up.   There are people waiting for their issues, so I have to get busy.   And NaNoWriMo is coming up in November, for which I want to make a space in my life.

So, Twitter .. wait for me.  I will be back.  Often.

To you my reader, what role does Twitter play in your life?
