I thought entering the social media world would be a child’s play. If you think about it, the process consumes exactly 2 minutes of your time; mainly filling in some contact information to create a free account. However, incorporating social media into my daily life was the toughest part.

After creating my twitter account I realized that I was very inactive compared to my friends. That’s why I decided to boost my twitter activity, so I started locating top influencers around the world and following them.

It all started by skimming through the titles or first 3 words of each tweet just to create an illusion to myself that I’m active and ‘informed’.

A year later I realized that there are some fields that interest me more than others so I tracked influencers in that particular field and became their ‘true follower’.

A month later, I found myself waking up every morning eager to check my twitter updates, enthusiastic to read almost every tweet/ or link to article that catches my eye. I simply could not lay my head on the bed without going through almost everything that could happen around the world concerning media, communication, or anything else.

Twitter revived the sleeping geek in me. I woke up a month after “the twitter treatment” feeling #likeaboss , communicating with hash tags and expressing myself confidently, sharing my opinions to the rest of the world freely, wanting to know more.

The next step after the twitter treatment was finding the blogger in me. Tweeting has surely given me a new taste of media, and I’m looking forward to tasting a new flavor through blogging.
