When you've been on Twitter a while (I joined on April 27, 2007), you accumulate some interesting folks on your friend's list over time. Here is a random sample of 10 Tweeters that I have picked up over the last 2+ years.
Albert and I had a brief business engagement when he was assisting my previous company architect a solution using IBM WebSphere products. He is an avid Yelper and has great Sacramento restaurant reviews. I just wish he would come over to Lunch.com to review everything else!
When you don't have many friends, sometimes you have to expand your circle to include friends of your relatives. Chad is a friend of my brother who I followed after seeing another friend of my brother follow him (see #5). Recently, Chad's wife shared a very challenging story and I found out about it through his feed. You can find this remarkable story here.
I have yet to enjoy some Kogi Korean tacos, but I follow them on Twittero in hopes that they will one day make it out to Hawthorne and I can partake of this unique delicacy that I have heard so much about.
Matt is another "borrowed friend" from my brother, but I have actually met him now and consider him my friend as well. When he is not busy caring for my nieces, he puts some great theological content up on his blog which you can occasionally find out about here.
You can't touch this! Hammer is the first celebrity I followed. How can you resist getting personal insights from a real, famous person? Beware of getting his tweets sent to your phone, though, especially if you don't have unlimited texting!
Jon and I spent the day at Magic Mountain together while in Jr. High camp with his dad (see #7). We didn't see much of each other after that until our paths crossed at Talbot seminary. I haven't seen him since those days, but now I know what and where he eats on an almost daily basis. :-)
I will be REAL honest here. I don't understand many of SHAQ's tweets. But I didn't understand many of his moves with the Lakers either. And I am not quite sure I understand why I am following him. I guess it is because of the simple reason that I can.
