I recently read somewhere that, “you are what you tweet.” Although this may not be exactly true, I do think that Twittering has the power to shape people’s perceptions of you DRAMATICALLY.
For instance, if someone’s tweets are constantly whines and complaints, I start to think they are negative. I start to change the way that I interact with them, in person and online.
And the reverse is true too. I feel myself drawn to friends on Twitter who are constantly encouraging and educating. I enjoy interacting with these tweeps. I am happy to pass along (RT) their tweets.
And I consciously think…I want to be more like those people.
And so Twitter has changed me. It has served as a daily gut-check. Am I being a person that people want to be around? Am I being the person that God created me to be?
If the answer is no (as it sometimes, alright often, is), I am taking time to try to get my head and my heart right.
This is just one more reason why I love Twitter…
How has Twitter changed you?
