“Social media is the ultimate equalizer. It gives a voice and a platform to anyone willing to engage.”-Amy Jo Martin
It’s 12 : 16 PM on day 1726 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray, read Amos 8, publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing –The dwarf (Pluto) planet has four known moons: Nix, Hydra, Kerberos, and Styx. – feed myself egg with bread for breakfast, make sandwiches for our sisi’s (housekeeper’s) neighborhood with sisi’s help as part of Virginia’s Sandwich Run – (thank you sisi for all your help) – and promote my Educate Generations campaign– $3 025 raised so far (thanks SO MUCH everyone 🙂 )
As you may or may not know I love Twitter I first got on Twitter in 2009 If I remember correctly I did it to get in touch with Oprah I never did hear back from Oprah but over the years I have connected with some of the world’s most extraordinary people for which I am profoundly grateful and since I believe everything is better when you share it I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite Twitter people (if I didn’t mention you please forgive me if I mentioned everybody I loved on Twitter this post would be as long as a book).
