I’m going to warn you ahead of time. This blog post might get corny at times. But I can’t help it because this week, I’m marking my four year anniversary on Twitter.
It may seem strange to mark an anniversary for participating in a social media platform. However, Twitter has changed my life or I should say, the people I have met online through Twitter have changed my life. At first, Twitter gave me a platform to be myself, be transparent without worrying what I was saying and to connect with people who I may never have encountered in real life.
Many times I bared my tears, frustrations, joys and achievements on Twitter and amazingly, people went along on my ride. They cheered me on, provided much needed advice and when I finally met them in person, many gave me hugs and emotional support during moments I needed it most.
I know that people have come and gone on Twitter, just like the many debates, jokes and arguments I’ve seen on this social media platform. To those who I have encountered and to those who are still sticking around my life, thanks for being a part of it.
We have built an incredible, supportive Twitter community in Edmonton. I’ve enjoyed the roller coaster ride so far and looking forward to many more twists and turns and ups and downs in the future.
