  • 1. Twitter<br />Soup<br />for the Soul<br />2nd Printing<br />FRANCES FLYNN THORSEN’S<br />Mashup Of Tweets<br />And Photos<br />An Exercise In Transparency<br />Copyright 2009 Frances Flynn Thorsen<br />
  • 2. Twitter is described as a microblogging platform.<br />Twitterers use the tool to push product, build brand awareness, <br />instant message their friends, acknowledge and share links <br />about trends and events and their most personal moments.<br />Twitter is a mashup of brilliance, idiocy, art, confusion, hyperbole, and prayer <br />in 140-character-or-less sound bytes.I think Twitter is even more ... Twitter is a reflection of the human soul.<br />I&amp;apos;ve been Twittering since Sept. 8, 2007. Everything you need to know <br />about me is contained in a bank of content there within a growing stream <br />of some 1,750 140-character-or-less posts. My Twitter address is <br />http://twitter.com/FrancesFlynnTho. Welcome to my soul.<br />Copyright 2009 Frances Flynn Thorsen<br />
  • 3. Dedication <br />Jeremiah Edward Flynn<br />I miss him this weekend ... his birthday is Tuesday, February 25<br />and the family is gathering in New Jersey to celebrate.<br />The following is from a blog post I wrote in September, 2007:<br />My Dad used to work with words ... he is a brilliant writer and editor<br /> and he struggles with words these days ... over the last eight years <br />his body and mind have been out of synch <br />... it is a frustrating consequence of Alzheimers ... <br />and a bitter irony ... this man who taught me to talk, <br />to count, and to read and write shares utterances <br />that are often hard to match with the intent of his communication. <br />My sister Linda flew up from Dallas<br /> and we have been sharing ice cream and memories ....<br />yesterday we had a treat neither of us was prepared to hear<br />... Daddy spoke some special words and this time there was NO mistake<br /> about the meaning of his words ... when we parted with him for the day<br /> we hurriedly wrote his words so that we would never forget them. <br />&amp;quot;No clearer satisfaction did any father ever have with the participation of two daughters like you.&amp;quot; <br />Copyright 2009 Frances Flynn Thorsen<br />
