One cool thing about Twitter is that you're one "submit" button press away from connecting with a company or a celebrity!

Today I sent a message to the host of CBC Radio's Q, Jian Ghomeshi, and received a near-immediate response:

How cool is that?! It's like a digital autograph.

One funny thing about Twitter is that, because every tweet is more or less public, companies can search for mentions of themselves and immediately send responses.

When a contact asked where she could grab a specific computer accessory, I recommended two local Saskatoon shops and London Drugs. I have a running theory that London Drugs always, always, always has what I want, sometimes even before I know I want it. One Christmas, Robyn and I checked 7 stores for Candy Cane Lane Tea, and we were about to give up, but I knew we'd find it because we hadn't checked London Drugs yet. We bought a dozen boxes.

Anyway, when I tweeted that London Drugs always has what I want, they responded, "we try!"

It's a cool feeling to directly connect with a company, too!

Finally, in 2009 I posted about my excitement for an upcoming Sloan concert, and the band retweeted (think: re-posted) my comments in their feed to all of their fans:


More posts coming this week! Robyn came for a visit this past weekend and we have some neat pictures. And next Sunday I think I am going to check out Montreal's St. Patrick's Day Parade, which has been around for over 150 years!
