A beautiful sunrise, then storms – and retweeted tweets

Posted By on March 20, 2017


It was dark for a panoramic iPhone5 photo, but while doing my "last bag" garbage run this morning, I couldn’t resist a photo of the sunrise while the lightning was cracking to the west. Within an hour it was pouring rain and became a dreary, damp day.

On a social networking technology note, it is amazing what a higher profile "re-tweet" can do for an average tweet. I generally post a few things to Twitter each day, often while I eat my lunch. It has been my habit for almost a year and over 1000 of over 20,000 tweets to use a personalized URL shortener; it is easy to know when a media personality re-tweets something that I’ve shared. Generally a tweet gets between 30-50 clicks from my followers, but it can go close to 1000 if someone high profile comments or retweets it. Here’s 4 hours worth of clicks on a couple of today’s tweets.
