The power of networking!While watching the U.S. Presidential debate last night, I had my computer on & Twitter open. Whenever there's a major event on television, Twitter is the most entertaining place to be. Comedians & wise-asses unite to roast any & everything. The Bachelor/Bachelorette, the Olympics, award shows, etc.

"He got to start this segment, I get to end it!" And you wonder why things don't get done in Washington, D.C. #MockTheVoteIn the midst of my attempts to make strangers laugh, I managed to get a retweet from someone "famous". (I'm using quotation marks because if I have to be reminded why someone is famous, they don't count as a celebrity IMO) Then suddenly the amount of people in my interactions was more than it had ever been. I've had models, bloggers & athletes mention me online before but last night was ridiculous. Every time I refreshed the page, it would need to be refreshed again in seconds. I didn't get CM Punk numbers but I couldn't help but think "This is how it feels!"

If Cody RT-ed me, i'd flip out and running through my neighborhood and screaming like a total idiot. Seriously.It's not a regular occurrence, for me anyways, but it's one of the more enjoyable parts of social media. Having someone with an audience that completely overshadows your own taking a second to share your content. As someone who retweets people regularly, it really takes little to no effort but the way someone can feel after seeing a thought of their own spread is amazing. Kind of nerdy, but amazing nonetheless. So cheers to the people who retweet & share content, especially the "famous" ones in this case. It's good to know that you can still see us from high atop the pedestals of society. Thanks for picking a few of us up every so often for our 15 minutes.
