Twitter Famous: the Tale of One Tumor

BlogHer Original Post

Twitter is the great equalizer. Not only can celebrities and the common folk mingle in the Twitterverse, but even tumours have an equal opportunity of becoming Twitter famous. Willfully Disobedient has a funny tale of the time when she broke into a conversation on Twitter and the fibroid she brought up ended up getting a boatload of attention thanks to a tweet by The Bloggess.

What followed was an insane amount of tweets and replies and I was trying so hard to keep up that I thought my thumbs might fall off. I just could not believe the enormous response… and I was so touched and humbled by all of the kind things that complete strangers were saying that I almost cried right in the middle of all of it. 

Go over and read Willfully Disobedient's whole post and be prepared to laugh. 

Have you ever had a story blow up bigger than you thought it would due to someone else's tweet?
