Four months ago I read a blog post by Dan Brinkmann: “The Impact of #Twitter on My Life “? In this post Dan wrote:
I can tell you with a straight face, Twitter has completely changed my career … my network is worldwide…no shit…and it’s awesome, there are some really smart folks out there and I get to talk to them whenever I want.
Dan’s post resonated deeply with me – I’m a great believer in Internet as a tool for bringing people together. And yet, I myself was not on Twitter. So, after reading the post, I opened a Twitter account and started tweeting. It’s still early days for me, but I can already state that Dan was absolutely correct. I now have over a hundred followers. But more importantly than the number, this is an amazing group of people, which includes, for example, most of the BriForum speakers, including Dan himself.
Thanks Dan – I owe you big time.
