Social Media Moment
A blurb on one of the many benefits of social media…
Tonight I was helping my girlfriend put together a mix CD. Since I am the more net-savvy half of the operation (but by no means the brains), she asked for my assistance. I quickly took to the web, using my various normal ways of grabbing music, and got most of the songs she needed. There was one song, though, that I wasn’t able to get my virtual hands on. As the prideful person that I am, I wasn’t about to tell her “I can’t find it,” and tarnish my super-geek crown. Somewhat desperately, I turned to Twitter asking if anyone would send me the song.
Just a few minutes later, I was notified of someone’s tweet in reply to mine saying that he had it and to send over my e-mail address. Simple as that.
Ten minutes after posting my tweet, I had the song. I didn’t really expect to get anything by posting on twitter, but like I said, I was desperate. Social media comes in in the clutch. Again.
