Home » Cafe Twitter Tuesday | Making Special Needs Connections
If you know much of anything about me, you know I’m pretty in love with social media. I like tweeting away on Twitter and sharing on Facebook; I love circling and following and sharing on Google+; Heck, I love sharing more information about myself than you could ever truly care to know here at the Cafe.
But what is true, what is important, what I’m passionate about, is using all of these forums to make connections within the special needs community, not only finding other parents and professionals, but organizations, causes and others to engage with and connect further with. To that end, I’m going to begin a new kind of post here at the Cafe. You saw my first change in this respect yesterday as I introduced a special needs blogging and Twitter tool I am absolutely in love with.
I’ve written about the way I’ve used Twitter to help make special needs connections before, and I probably will again. Today, I introduce a way to help YOU make those connections as well.
Twitter Tuesday is a way to introduce you to a select few of my followers each week, share why I think they are a great resource and potential Twitter follow for you, and tout their awesomeness a bit. Sometimes, these will be folks you have heard of, sometimes not. They might have 1000′s of followers and Twitter buds, they might just have a few.
My Hope? Is that you will take the chance to make a few new friends and use the Cafe’s version of Twitter Tuesday to make those meaningful connections.
In the land of Mommy blogging and moms making connections, you don’t know how often I hear (even from my own husband) that the dads are left in the cold. So to lead my Twitter Tuesday I thought I would share a few neat Dads on Twitter who tweet regularly about special needs topics, specifically autism.
Rob’s Blog, Lost and Tired, is in the running for a Parents Best Daddy Blog Award, which is much deserved. If you want to help him out a bit, why not also VOTE for him as well?
So —Twitter Tuesday — Cafe style
There you have it, a few amazing folks to follow and connect with, because making special needs connections is always worth doing! Who is on your must-follow Twitter list? Do you have a few special needs folks who you think are “must follow” stars? I’d love to hear about them – why not share in the comments and let others find some new friends as well?
