Team Twitter

Yesterday was a long day! If you are interested hop on over to dLife and check it out.


But I wanted to write here about Twitter. 

Twitter is awesome! Yesterday all the people that responded to my Tweets made the day much more bearable.


If you don’t know what Twitter is, here is the Wikipedia definition…


Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.


So yesterday when I first went to the doctors I “tweeted” how I was feeling. Here are all of the replies I received.

sixuntilme @ninjabetic PLEASE let us know how you are doing. Now I'm worried!!!!

BernardF @ninjabetic I'll say some prayers now George. I hope everything is OK, let us know.

And those were from my first update! All day I was updating letting all those following me what was going on. All the time I felt connected and felt like I had this community cheering me on, sending good thoughts, and praying for me. It made all of it so much more tolerable. I am thankful I have people who care.


I guess I wanted to post about this in case you who are reading it need a support group. It is not easy to open up for some but when you do it is nice to know you are not alone. And it is awesome to be able to return the favor when others are in need.


Thanks Tweeple for all your love and support yesterday. I needed it big time!

G-Ninja -
I feel like such a heel - I have been out of the dblog loop the past few days due to a crazy work schedule.
I need to get on twitter - not knowing about your health scare proves it!
You are a great friend and I'm glad your doing better.
Positive vibes and prayers your way!

Ain't no thang! I'm just hoping you get this figured out and the sensation in your arm returns asap.

Sara said...

Keep us posted George! I kept logging into Twitter to get an update at work. We are really worried about you. We can't have our favorite ninja not in fighting form can we?!

What you didn't know was that some us (well, me) were sitting on the edge of our seats every time we did a catch up on Twitter yesterday waiting to see how you were. I was reading on my phone and am not proficient at typing with it so didn't tweet you a note, but I was also worried for you and anxious for news. So there were even more people on Twitter sending you our good vibes even if we couldn't tweet our thoughts to you.

Please keep us all updated on how your appt with the neurologist goes.

I heart twitter. Think about it man. How else could all of that love come screaming your way so fast? Impossible.
