I have officially been on Twitter for five years. Twitter has changed how I get my news, how I consume media, and how I release thoughts into the world. All 3,770 of them.
Mostly, Twitter has been there for the big moments.
Like when I finished my freshman year of college. And the night LOST ended. And when John Isner won the longest tennis match of all time. In late 2010, I applied to study abroad in Australia. Twitter was there the night we caught Bin Laden. And when I traveled to Florida to broadcast BC/UCF. I got a little excited on the epic final day of the 2011 season. Twitter allowed me to ponder life’s biggest questions. It was even there when I started this blog. And when I left for Australia. It was there through pain. And fortune. Fall 2012 was all about Raul Ibanez.
Twitter was there when I experienced my first earthquake.
Twitter was there for my last radio show.
And for many, many other things along the way.
I’m not sure how Twitter will be used in five, ten, twenty years. I don’t know if it is something I will use for my entire life. But it’s been an important part of these past five years.
