But, I wasn't prepared for what happened that night.
In the middle of that hectic day, I started thinking about Danielle--one of my ex-coworkers. She left our company because of all of the craziness; and the madness itself reminded me of her.
I started our text conversation with a simple, "Hey girl, how u doin?"
"Just nother day. "U wouldn't believe the craziness that's goin on at work since u left."
"Yeah, same old same old."
"Come on, tell me how u REALLY feel!!! U know I had to get outta there like FAST."
"Well since u asked....I'm..."
"Come on girl, SPILL."
And this is where technology took me by surprise. I responded to Danielle with "At wit's end" and then tapped Send. Then, my stupid smart phone's autocorrect feature changed what I wrote to...
A TWIT SEND
...then my phone immediately launched a key word app, and I typed the rest of my text to Danielle in a Twitter update! I did exactly what my old friend suggested and I didn't even notice when Twitter came up. I just wanted to unload the day:
"Unreal!!!! People are CRAZY. People are idiots. But even idiots need Jesus. So I just love the idiots anyway."
The text that was meant for just Danielle was suddenly posted for the entire Twitter world to see. It went viral. After just a few minutes, there were dozens of "likes" on it and within hours my post was re-tweeted and posted all around the world on Facebook and Google Plus.
Danielle saw it first. "Hey girl, what u tweetin?"
"Yes u did!"
"Oh my... goodness..."
"U need to quit that job."
"Been thinkin LOTS about it, believe me."
"I believe! LOL"
"LOL. I miss u Danielle."
"I miss u too. u kno u could come work with me."
"I am SERIOUSLY thinkin about it."
"Hey, ur idiot tweet is going viral."
"Way. I gotta go."
"k - chat l8er."
I miss that girl.
