The people we meet on Twitter…

In February 2011, it’ll be 2 years since I became acquainted with Twitter and started to “tweet.” As of today, I’ve “tweeted” 2,778 times! Time flies when you’re having fun!

During the past 21 months, I’ve enjoyed “meeting” people I never would have had the opportunity to connect to without a communication medium like Twitter, with its worldwide reach. Almost 1,800 people are following me on Twitter. I’m following most of these people, too. (But, sometimes it’s hard to keep up, I admit…)

There are more than a few people to whom I feel closely connected to through Twitter. — I think you know who you are! ;-) — And I’ve also had the opportunity to meet face-to-face with some great people, including @AlexBlom, @SandyDfromNJ, @MrsMoNJ, and @ItalianAmerGirl. These are all friendships that started on Twitter and continue today. (Speaking of @ItalianAmerGirl… she met with my class at Rider University just yesterday and wowed us with her social media and blogging knowledge — and she’s a Rider grad! — Thanks, Margaret!)

I tell my students that good communication and good business are based on making connections and “engaging” with good people. Twitter is a great place to start! Do you agree?

Please tell us about the people you’ve met on Twitter and the people who continue to inspire you today.

I look forward to your comments on my blog. Thanks for reading, and, until next time, take care!
