My Twitter Followers

I know, the social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, get plenty of complaints and bad reviews from a lot of people.

I, for one though, really appreciate Twitter and all the interactions it brings with people from all over the world.  I am probably the quintessential non-famous person as I am not a celebrity, not a politician, not a movie star, not a TV star, not a professional, not an athlete, etc.; but that doesn’t matter on twitter because I can still interact with politicians and movie stars and TV stars and athletes, et. al.

More than that, I am proud to say that amazingly to me, I have been honored to be followed on twitter by many famous people, that could never have been possible without Twitter.  On the political side I am proud to say I have been followed by famous people from all sides of the political spectrum, and I really appreciate that and I feel like I am friends with all.  I know there will be some people listed that many of you may not like politically.  I try and look for the good in people…and if these famous [that’s what I call them] people are willing to follow such a non-famous person as me, I am not going to talk against them, even when I may disagree with them.

So, without further ado,

Here are some of the famous people who follow me on twitter which includes TV personalities, politicians, journalists, and sports personalities [athletes and journalists].  I am not giving this list to brag, but to thank each and everyone of you who do follow me on twitter-and not just these “famous” people, but everyone who follows me, famous or not.  It is truly an honor!

and one who I was really blessed to have follow me on twitter – who passed about 5 years ago was one of the greatest conductors of all time, Maestro Lorin Maazel.  He not only followed me on twitter, he actually sent me direct messages periodically, giving me ideas and corrections on my mostly classical music blog – Tales From a Tribble.  And believe me, I needed those corrections!  🙂

RIP: Maestro Lorin Maazel

Yes, each of these famous people follow me on twitter – Am I blessed or what?  Thank you to all who follow me on twitter and thank you, twitter, for making it possible.
