My 9,000th Tweet

To me, the 9,000th tweet is a milestone that signals two things:
  1. I tweet too much
  2. I'm just getting started
We are all in the midst of the book that is our lives ... each day a new page ... each opportunity a new chapter.  Twitter gives us the opportunity to share excerpts of our work in progress.

Over the last few days between tweet 8,999 and now I have done more listening.  I've always tried to listen but always find myself "talking" at the same time.
“To listen well, is as powerful a means of influence as to talk well, and is as essential to all true conversation” - Chinese Proverb
So ... as I venture on to tweet 10,000 and beyond; I thank those followers on twitter that have stayed with me through the periods of silly television play-by-play, foursquare updates, and the #GilReview (although I feel like a lot of people LIKED #GilReview).  Stay tuned for tweets and re-tweets of value, substance, and of course still having fun.

  1. Wow! I see you love Twitter! I don’t understand this social network. You can share your thoughts in your blog or in Facebook account. I think Twitter sometimes is a waste of time. It may be helpful for a start up promotion and for killing time)) what do you use Twitter for!
