Understanding twitter – For those who are alien to the twitterverse

I tweet therefore I am!

For a ‘twitterholic’ like me twitter is a virtual home. It’s a place where I have built relationships and understood a lot about life, people, places, and what not.

When someone tells me “I’m not a 140 chars person” or even worse things like “Why would I talk with random strangers on web”, a part of me sighs!

So I’m going to talk about 3 basics of twitter, there are many which I’ll keep on sharing later J

About 140 chars: Who doesn’t love short statements and if you can’t sum something up in few words you haven’t understood it well enough. You can tell a story in 140 chars! I’m not a man of few words is just a myth. Give it a try and you’ll see inspiration comes through few words and not many paragraphs. Also who has time for longer stories?!

Meeting strangers: Every single person you know practically was a stranger once. Even the ones we know turn out to be frauds or two-faced. Meeting someone virtually is same as meeting someone at a park, at school/college/work or a conference. This space just widens your possibilities.

I’m insecure: Don’t know what for! Well, security threats are always going to be there. No matter where you are you are always at risk. So that is just not a reason!

If you have anymore doubts always feel free to ask!

I haven't seen the cloud nine but Nandi hills is absolutely above it!

Some 60kms from Bangalore is a little heaven on mountains, it is called Nandi Hills. One fine night we decided to gear up and ride our way to this beautiful place!
Here is my story!!
Very very early in the morning we reached, it was too dark..the ride had been amazing!

The sky was extremely beautiful, the place crowded and yes, every other person like me wanted to click the best picture of the rising sun....
Then it turned a little dark...

Finally! Mesmerized by the beauty of nature...
Then we took a round of the place and clicked clicked and clicked more ;)

Sometimes it is okay to break some rules..

As I look at the peak of the mountain..I'm lost ...

As we came down, we were surprised..we hadn't seen any of this on our way up..yeah it was too dark!

It is FUN!

Nandi hills: 60kms from Bangalore
How to reach: Bikes,cars and taxis are the best option
What is it: Well, it is a temple but it is more famous for the surreal beauty.
