We all have stories to be told about how powerful Twitter can be as a community builder. I love the small, personal and inconsequential stories that show every day humanity.
Last night Peter Cowan, my namesake who lives in Portland and who I almost met last summer, tweeted an appeal for good news, any good news would do. As luck, or serendipity would have it within a few seconds huffington post tweeted a story about the first condor chick to be hatched in a California park in a hundred years. I retweeted the story to Peter and he got back to me a little later with a sincere thanks. I hope I made his day, he certainly made mine.
