One day I was talking to a guy on Twitter named @Enki09 (Mike Johnston) about Native Americans. Specifically his Grandparents and my Childhood travels to Indian Reservations.
Overtime we found that both of us were writing on an Alternative Energy site called www.pickenplan.com @PickenPlan
Mike was quite active on the Pickens Plan site but I was just getting started. I did however have more followers on Twitter than he did and I was more active.
We collaborated for the "Virtual March" by our own initiative which was a 3 day event of Cyber Activity, Faxes and Phone Calls to Legislatures in Washington DC to Promote Alternative Energy.
Mike was in Washington in person for the Press Conferences and I pulled my Truck into a Tennessee Rest Area and "ReTweeted" his pictures.
We were very gratified when we were sent a personal "Thank You" from the Pickens Group for making the "Virtual March" on Twitter a Success.
As it turns out, Mike is also a Truck Driver and it showed how to regular old people can make an impact on Twitter.
