Lately I have been thinking a lot, why I like Twitter so much. One of the answers is, that Twitter is a place, where serendipity can enter my life. In Finnish serendipity is translated as lucky coincidence, but I think it's more than that.
I use Twitter, bacause it's truly an easy way to connect with people all over the world. All you have to do is click follow and that is a possible start for relationship. The important thing isn't, that everyone answer to your tweets, instead important is, that you can send tweets to people. When you let go of the thought, that it's embarrassing not to get answer, you'll probably have more courage to approach people too.
Serendipity in Twitter is made of this courage to connect with people, empathetic attitude towards people and curiosity of different kind of personalities and opinions. That's why I think, that serendipity in Twitter isn't just lucky coincidence, the base of it has to be build with thought. But when you invest some precious time to build your network, then you probably will someday enjoy the suprises, that will arise from your network; new opportunities, valuable connections, help and support.
In the mean time, let's tweet with each other!
