A tweet well spent

Finally. Today, I finally used twitter for something genuinely useful.

It started with a ridiculous media call. God love the media and their extravagant requests. Today they wanted me to find someone who fit three very specific criteria. I had one person in mind who might fit said criteria but alas when I called them it appeared that their phone had been disconnected.

Sidebar: what up with that? I thought I was at an age now where all my peers were able to consistently maintain a phone number.

Anyways, I went to twitter thinking I could contact the person that way. I went to my personal list to see if said person had posted recently (thus implying I could contact them via twitter) and there at the very top of my list was a post by another peer commenting about the exact same issue said media person wanted a comment about. And you know what? He fit the three criteria exactly AND was passionate about the issue at hand. 2 phone calls later and bam! I'm a media genius, a mover and shaker, a master networker.

Well, not exactly. But definitely a job well done. Take that Wednesday!

actually, I just needed to pull something out of my archive and I had to reactivate the old blog to do it.

Sorry to disappoint my one fan!

I noticed it was back up. I was hoping it meant a revival, but alas, not to be.

I hope you're doing well!
