There comes a point in our lives where we ask ourselves "are there any real people left in the world?" At 22 years old this was the exact question I asked myself and never in a million years did I think the answer to my question would lie in a social media app.
I know this might sound crazy, but stick with me okay? Almost three and a half years ago I joined Twitter. Yes I know, very basic of me but whatever. I joined because all of my friends were on and it was just another way to keep up with people from high school that you didn't really care about or stalk people you actually hate. Little did I know I would connect with strangers from around the world who share common interests with me and were there for me when the people at home weren't. There really is no better feeling than have support from someone, it just so happened to be at first I didn't really know these people.
Yeah yeah, I know what you are thinking and I completely understand because I thought I was crazy at first too but who really cares how you make a friend? All that matters is that they are true, right?
As I look back on the last 4 years I realize that I met some of the greatest, most supportive and loving woman in the world all because of a phone app. I have gotten the chance to meet tons of these girls in person and it is like we have known each other for years. I have met people who are going to be friends for a lifetime and that is the most amazing feeling in the world. These girls get me.
So thank you Twitter. Thank you for being a killer friend. Without you the world will be less, well, blue.
