A few minutes ago, I read this tweet from my friend Lisa. After I retweeted it, I turned it back to her with my own tweet.
Soon, my friend Anthony joined in. He retweeted my message about Lisa, then added his own:
The entire exchanged happened quickly.
We happened to all be online and we took the opportunity to encourage each other.
It only took a few minutes.
It only takes a moment to type out 140 characters, powerful key strokes that can change the course of a person’s day.
It only takes a moment to make someone smile, to cheer them on, to express appreciation, to deepen a connection.
It only takes a moment to honor someone’s contribution, to make them feel like a super star, to show how deeply you value them.
Let’s keep it going. Who can you inspire today?
I am the founder/CEO of the Weaving Influence team, the author of Reach: Creating the Biggest Possible Audience for Your Message, Book, or Cause, and the host of the Book Marketing Action Podcast. I’m a wife and mom of three kids, and I enjoy running, reading, writing, coffee, and dark chocolate.
This is a great idea. I follow some really brilliant people. I read what they post and follow their links regularly. But it hadn’t occurred to me to do something like this. It’s too easy to feel like Twitter goes one way sometimes.
