My Twitter Story by @melissaar
Over the year, I have met other people and gone to other tweetups. It’s a friendly and entertaining group who are there for you when you are up and are praying for you when you are down. They managed to save the dean of UALR Law School’s life. (well sorta) I’ve had the opportunity to meet people that I wouldn’t have met under any other circumstances and to share ideas with people whom I probably wouldn’t have had time if I had to do it one on one. It also reminds me that I am not alone and the world is bigger than the town I am in.

I have a #LRTweetup story, and I’ve never attended a Tweetup by @erniebufflo
I still can’t get over the fact that a group of people I’ve never “met” nominated me for an award, though I guess it’s a testament to my tendency to insert my loudmouthed self into the center of things, but more than that, a testament to this group’s welcoming attitude. I can’t wait to meet each and every member of the #LRTweetup community.

How Twitter Saved My Life (kinda) by @jmdipippa
Twitter allowed me to break out of the isolation my recuperation imposed. I don’t like to be cooped up and rarely sit still at work but moving was challenging and uncomfortable. Twitter gave me incentive to work on my recovery. I tweeted the number of steps I had taken that day or my recovering appetite or my new Guitar Hero scores. And the encouragement from my new twitter buddies kept me accountable to them and gave me even more incentive to take a few more steps the next day. It kept me happy and helped me to become healthy.
