Twitter is a strange animal. It can offer some great support, encouragement, debates, nuisances, and knee-jerk reactions. One thing that I would like to do, is share the tweets from this past year that have brought a smile to my face or a thought to my brain. Many of these tweets came from conversations, others from random tweets I can across. All of them are worth the quick second it takes to read through it. Last year I did a short version of this list at the end of the year. This year, I’m going to take my time and split these favorited tweets into sections, and pick my favorites of the favorites for an end-of-the-year post. If you’re on this list, please comment below and let me know, if not, then you may show up on a later volume.
