I wanted to take a minute and thank my Twitter friends who not only make me a better online marketer, but also have been a major influence, creating a strong community within my interests. 

Social Media when used correctly can be an incredible source of making this world a better place. Sure, Facebook is cool, LinkedIn is great, but in my opinion Twitter has been the biggest source of some of the greatest. most influential and inspiring people I have ever met.

Without Social Media, I don’t think I would have ever found these great people and  it says a lot about the power of Social Media, when used correctly, can pull people with common goals and interests together, from all over this planet of ours.

I know that there are more to come and I am also afraid that I am going to leave some people out, (but I will come back to this post and add you), but here is a #Shoutout to all the people I have met on Twitter that have positively helped not only in a professional manner, but also in so many other ways as well… and to you, I cannot express enough how much I thank you.

You made this list because you have proven to me that you are a true friend, whether we have ever met in person or not, you are always there to inspire, share and be a part of what I am most interested and passionate about.. social media, search engine and online marketing.

@ShellieBlum Lake Wales, Florida: You are absolutely, without question one of  the most inspiring people I have ever met and a genuine friend. Your determination and dedication not only to your dreams, but your family as well are truly admiral. I hope all your dreams come! Get that book published!!

@florin_muresan Cluj-Napoca, Romania: So cool that from almost on the other side of the globe we can connect and help each other share what we are so passionate about. So glad to be your long distant friend!

I can’t possibly mention everyone here who has ever retweeted or tweeted me, but the list above are solid, everyday tweeters and I wanted to share how much I appreciate you.
