What has twitter ever done for you?

On the one hand:  nothing – because it isn’t twitter it’s the people on twitter (as opposed to the bots and spammers) that really make it work.

And on the other hand: Let’s see - 

  •    Given me perspective, actually helped me to decide that it would be better for me to give up a senior management job and bike to a local job, working in the community
  •    Generated a fantastic design coming in from @flashmaggie for our Expo in Dennington on 20th June based on the sciapod
  •     Won a competition thanks to @penelopeelse and @cartoono The Dys-Artist’s Delight - 29 May 2009
  •     Led to potential involvement with @FoodSafariUK, thinking about cottage gardening, liquors, syrups and vinegars
  •     Free coffee at Suffolk Show by saying tweet tweet at the coffee stand thanks to the glorious @paddyandscotts
  • Encouraged me to take part in a script writting competition - but I will have to put stuff on paper rather than wake up with the plot rerunning in my head at 4.00 am.  thanks to @antoniablue
Actually it’s been a great week if you go to my ‘favorites’ list in twitter you will find many other super people

Please leave a comment - what has twitter ever done for you?  what about the foodsaffari idea?

Ohh and the pigs -  they were at the show and I just love pigs


  1. Great post - good luck with the new job, I'm glad you,ve had the oppertunity to take the chance!


  2. Aww, thanks for the mention. Twitter has opened up a whole new social networking expierience. i'm not a member of Facebook, don't fancy that, but this is fast and it doesn't matter how long you spend on-line, you can pick up with stuff any time.

    i actually started with Twitter when I was chosen to write a character (@fragharpy) for the @RFMPlay, so overall it's been a great experience.

    Good Tweeps on Twitter!

  3. Glad you liked the logo. I like Twitter because of the funny people. As I live alone, my neighbour must wonder what I'm laughing at.

  4. Good post I love twitter for the people and the inspiration to try new things or to remind you of old stuff that needs to be revitalised.


I always enjoy reading comments, if you have the time please leave a little something to share.........
