Hey! In just 5 months- I have ammassed almost 1 million followers. How? Engagement with my friends on Twittter, and support from the Twitter community. I have so many stories of laughter and tears, and sharing, which made each and every follow from another Twitter friend all the more special.
From corresponding with a man who sends his 40 something year old wife w/Alzeheimers to hospice, to helping pet resuces, and the thrill of giving honemooners destination ideas, to endless jokes with personal friends- talking Twitter, chocolate and love for travel- it's all about engagement... sharing+caring.
Twitter also changed my life, when @operationsmile came to me asking me to be their Twitter Smile Ambassador. Unbeknownst to them, my brother (who died) had been born with a facial deformity. Kismit! I had never shared my story of Christopher to anyone, and soon, I shared my brother's story with everyone, and created a campaign with @reneeAHamilton- Op Smile's social media person- 140smiles.org campaign for Twitter. I will now help 140 children get new smiles w/life changing surgeries by raising funds through Twitter.
I hope this is a window into some of my special experiences along the way to becoming a "Twilebrity"-- infact- that's the cherry on the cake, my Twitter friends are the biggest gift of all. THANK YOU Twitter for changing my life!
