You get to meet some fantastic people on it!
I joined twitter long before it was "cool" and remember getting really excited when anyone followed me! Well over the years I have learned that there are some rather nasty, rude and silly people out there who are not worth my time and I am more careful about who I follow and who I block.
These days looks like everyone has a twitter account and some of those who do really have no idea of how to use the internet and especially a public platform like twitter in a responsible way! I am not going to go into specifics but I do see a lot of nonsense posted on twitter and have encountered a few keyboard warriors who are an embarrassment to humankind!
BUT for each one of these morons there are a 100 good guys and gals who are a pleasure to know. I am happy to say I have met really lovely people on it, some I knew before and twitter has just given us another way of sharing information or occasionally having a laugh. Some I made the effort to meet face to face after I got to know them on twitter. Some I have never met but just enjoy talking to and reading what they have to say and hope they like what I have to say too.
Ok this is one of those random posts with no particular motive. I wrote it because I felt like it!
OR maybe its a follow up of a post I wrote on my other blog
