Today I spent some extra time on Twitter and was again amazed, like these folks, at the variety of subjects people tweet about. Twitter posts can be entertaining, provocative and often inspiring. Soon, an hour has passed and you might chastise yourself for taking too long; or, maybe not.
Twitter is entertaining. Jodie Foster got married last weekend, according to a Buzzfeed post. And, if you want to celebrate a 450-year author birthday, you can read about the top ten Shakespeare books for kids. Yay!
Twitter can be useful. I read the recipe for Slow Cooker Spicy Pinto Beans and discovered a magazine seeking a freelance copy editor: supper and contract-seeking from home.
Huge numbers of Syrians starve while the UN waits; an Israeli air strike injures 12 in North Gaza. Always timely and provocative, Twitter posts compel me to investigate further by clicking the link.
We discover something new each day through Twitter links. Today I learned about a new species of crustacean living on the bones of a dead whale on the sea floor. Did you know the Blue-Footed Boobies have stopped breeding? I followed the link.
An Alberta MP inspires us to consider organ donation. Twitter put his message out to the masses. The link is below.
If you've Googled a question and can't seem to find the answer, an experienced blogger often knows where to find it. The question in her title prompted a quick click over to her website. Clever. Link below.
It's time to get off line and go create some word magic. Have a safe day and - oh yes, you can get breaking news and weather too - on Twitter.
