100K Tweets Onwards and Upwards

So which 100K sketch do you like best?

If you’d have asked me 4 years ago if I’d send 100k (one hundred thousand) tweets, i’d have laughed.

Here I am having just crossed that mark and on my way to the next thousand.

Commemorating it seems silly to some. Fellow St. Louis area tweeps are cheering. Cool though is to get a wee bit of media attention.

Remy, of 93.7 The Bull show Mason & Remy, caught me up short about a week ago. He noticed I was approaching 100K tweets. He asked the epic question, “What will you do for your 100K tweet?”

I responded immediately, “I’m going to tweet on your show!” And so the ground work was laid.

Mason contacted me later in the week to line up how we could do the 100k tweet on air. Negotiations were rough but I agree to to call in, along with my friend Chris Reimer (aka @RizzoTees), and tweet the epic 100k tweet while recording on the show.

Skipping to the good stuff here. I’m including Mason, Remy, Chris, and myself on the two radio segments. One focused on the 100k tweet, and one on Chris’ effort to support Pratzel’s.

I’d love for you to take a moment to listen in, and another moment to share your thoughts about either the 100k tweets, Pratzel’s or even on Mason and Remy.

Getting there has been fun, long, short, epic, laughable. You name it; I’ve felt it.

What’s driven me? Relationships, conversations, and exploration. It’s been all about me some days, while other tweets have been to raise funds, raise awareness, uplift friends, or just to listen.

I’ve seen instant reports of earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, eruptions, assassinations, and happy things as well. It’s awesome to tweet or get a tweet about a birth, a wedding, a person finding salvation, or even someone scoring a great deal online.

Twitter grew from something of passing interest to a nation wide obsession. Yep. I still scream out at times, “they don’t get it”, like any good geek. Mostly though I’m happy that the world continues to shrink for me and others.

Okay. I think I’ve written more here than my last 100 tweets, so I’ll wrap it up.
