Whoever invented Twitter deserves a big hug from me. I love twitter. I can keep in touch with friends-both IRL and ones found through social media. The tweeps I follow are witty and awesome.
Also, I can reach out to fellow SLP's-get advice and just vent-to people who "get it". We have great discussions on topics in our field. (#slpeeps, #SlpsnQ's, #Slpchat. When I need a moment-at work-at home..to just distract myself to unwind. I can always count on Twitter to do just that.
Twitter is one of the fastest ways for breaking news. (omg Sid Crosby-wore a "regular" helmet indicating he was cleared for contact? Twitter exploded immediately) My husband (the sports man) is amazed sometimes at what I find out before him.
Have you ever watched a hockey or football game while simultaneously following twitter? Awesome. It's a whole different experience. A virtual trip to the stadium.
Try it sometime.
