Twitter should be about so much more than how often you tweet, how many followers you accumulate and how many retweets and favorites you get. We all love those notifications, but today reminded me that the unexpected things are why I like Twitter.
Twitter is cool, like when a friend (even if he is a Michigan fan) spots you in an online photo when you are working an Ohio State football game and tweets it at you (that’s me in the green shirt standing behind Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman).
Twitter is breaking news, like when you’ve been so busy and didn’t realize the president just made a big speech.
Twitter is helpful to your job, like when you follow accounts that follow industry news.
And Twitter is inspirational, like when a radio station posts a song video and it blesses your soul. (This is the most unexpected part of Twitter and what prompted this blog post.)
