Big confession ....I love Twitter. I started actively using it several years ago so much so I was named to the top 100 most social HR experts on Huffington Post. I can honestly say Twitter has enhanced my life! It has accelerated my learning, nurtured many professional relationships on a variety of topics.
So to all you that I am following and who have actively engaged with me - a heartfelt thank you!

"Be in the know - learn as you go" to me is now the 21st century way of building knowledge and competencies. Twitter helps with that. It's a great learning resource. It's a way of acquiring and maintaining a 1% edge in a accelerated way. Follow a hash tag and it's amazing what you can learn!
