If you read my first blog post you might guess that one thing that has almost fascinated me about the internet is the possibility to connect to people you would never had met without it.
And I’ve done a lot of that. Web chats, forums, IRC, online games of one sort or the other. Some people I met randomly, others via common friends and acquaintances.
Social networking websites and -media has boosted those possibilities in the past decade and twitter is one of the most interesting services around for that.
