My teacher @lonniehodge is a twitter veteran.
He is living in Guangzhou and also a frequent customer to a restaurant called "Danny's Bagel". One day the owner of the restaurant, Danny, said to him, "I know you! Lonnie Hodge!"(I don't quite remember the exact word)... Lonnie was momentarily nonplused," How did you know me?" "You are on twitter! I've been following you!"
When Lonnie told me this story, he couldn't help the excitement."It's twitter!" Yeah, the owner whose restaurant he's been to for 3 years knows him through twitter and now is a friend with him! If not twitter, they would have never known each other...
How cool is twitter!
