@ZimblerMiller Just finished Lt. Cmdr. Mollie Sanders. A very good read.
@Brian_OConnell Brian, thx so much for tweeting that you enjoyed LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS! www.molliesanders.com
Then Brian replied:
@ZimblerMiller I have almost 400 books on my Kindle app and your book was the first novel that I couldn’t put down. Watch out Tom Clancy!
I finished up with:
@Brian_OConnell Wow, Brian! You really made my day, and my day definitely needed being “made.” Thanks so much again.
Why have I chosen to write a blog post about this exchange on Twitter?
Because this exchange showcases the power of Twitter to make connections with people whom you otherwise are unlikely to connect with.
Until this exchange I was not following Brian. And I don’t even know how he found the ebook technothriller LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS or how he then connected with me on Twitter.
I do know that, with the simple act of tweeting his appreciation of the technothriller, he pleased me and possibly got other people interested in reading the ebook.
Social media offers these relationship connection opportunities to everyone who understands the concept of sharing information with others and showing appreciation for what is shared.
On the other hand, at the same time I saw Brian’s tweet I was dealing with inappropriate comments on a discussion thread on the LinkedIn Book Marketing group (www.LinkedInBookMarketing.com) that I founded and manage.
I reminded people of the group rules by adding the group rules in a comment on the thread. Unfortunately, by the time someone in the discussion had alerted me to the problems with this discussion, things had gone beyond the unkind and into the realm of cruelty. And I’m not sure reminding people of the rules will have any effect on toning down the rhetoric.
This is the negative side of social media just as tweeting compliments is the positive side of social media.
Remember the words of Charles Dickens in his opening of A TALE OF TWO CITIES: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”
That’s the world of social media opportunities today. And if you want to learn more about social media, see the Miller Mosaic blog at www.MillerMosaicSocialMediaMarketing.com

Buyers in Australia get more remedies per human than any other country. The variety of medications marketed by companies is no doubt a contributing matter to prescription medicament abuse epidemic. At present more than half of men aged over 50 reported some degree of erectile difficulties. Have a question about Cialis and levitra 10 mg? Let’s find answers to most pop questions about side effects of Cialis. While ED is more common among older men, that doesn’t make it ‘normal’. Most likely each man knows about levitra 10mg. Other matter we are going to is levitra 20mg. Orgasm troubles can usually indicate problems elsewhere. If you would like advice about Cialis, one of pharmacists will make available medicines that are suitable for you to take. You will then be able to buy the medicine.
