My Twitter blew up this week, and I’ll have more to say about that when my phone stops notifying me every 2-3 seconds. But it made me think of some past good times online that I will now share with you.
You probably know that podcasting legend/Crime Writer with capital C & W Rebecca Lavoie and I have been pals for years. So I found one of the first tweets she ever sent me. Apparently we were combining 70s and 80s TV shows with public radio hosts:

This back-and-forth came not long after another thrilling Twitter moment – with none other than singing great Gloria Estefan! She had that hit song about counting until you were hers, and I did the math to see how high she would have counted if she’d kept going since the song was first a hit. She seemed to enjoy it when I told her.
My favorite Twitter encounter was undoubtedly this one: when my now-oldest kid was 1 we dressed him up for Halloween as Rowdy Roddy Piper. He was super adorable…
…and on a whim, I sent the pic to Roddy. He wrote back the next day:
I’d look for more great moments like these but I’m not sure my Twitter is back at full power yet! Keep checking, keep tweeting… maybe slow down on the retweeting for a while though.
