God, this Lance interview makes me feel as if nothing’s sacred. Next we’ll find out that RTs really ARE endorsements.— Heidi N. Moore (@moorehn) January 18, 2013
From Time.com’s compilation of best tweets about Lance on Oprah:
Up early can’t sleep, don’t want to miss any part of being a dad & going to get a new cell phone number! It’s crazy how people get ur number— bubba watson (@bubbawatson) April 9, 2012
In my social media workshops, I talk about the importance of being generous to others and not constantly pointing to yourself and your work. I learned the value of generosity - again - earlier today.
And below is a screen grab of what happened within minutes of his tweet - amazing. Throughout the day, new followers arrived, thanks to Nick. [The tweet above is a newish embedded tweet, which means you can click on the link or reply, RT, favorite, etc directly on it - here are the official instructions.]
What @wordwhacker posted on Twitter today.
I am embedding this using #newtwitter, “embed this tweet” code.
Very impressive - all the links - reply, retweet, favorite, follow and the names and hashtags above - are live within the tweet. Nice!

She is the former Shifting Careers columnist and blogger for The New York Times; she now writes the Working the New Economy blog for Yahoo!s Shine. She just became a Senior Fellow at Civic Ventures, a nonprofit think tank best known for its awards to social innovators over the age of 60.
