I have a confession to make. I am fixated with twitter. One of the first things I do in the morning is to go through my tweets. I do the same at lunch time or when I am stuck in the traffic or waiting at the airports. It is one of the last things I do before going to bed.
Why? I hardly have time to read the newspapers or watch news on TV. Twitter keeps me updated on what is happening around the world. I have a few interests but hardly any time to follow them actively. Twitter lets me passively follow my interests in sports, music, movies, history, current affairs, dramas and books.
It allows me to express my opinions and share information. Its word limit is a bit strict for a person who loves to write endlessly. I am however learning fast to be concise and relevant in expression of thoughts- courtesy twitter.
I love learning but hardly have time for workshops or reading hard copy books and reports. Twitter has introduced me to e-learning and e-reading.
There are certain people I would love to meet to be inspired by them but cannot. Twitter thankfully has let me be inspired virtually by these people.
I have made new friends who are called followers on twitter. I have approximately 175 followers- 95% of them I have never seen but they follow me.
Why – because maybe they think my tweets are informative. May be it shapes their opinions or discussions. Maybe they influence their actions. Maybe my tweets inspire them.
Today however I need inspiration. I am feeling powerless. I need my followers help.
So you follow me? Thus I am a leader? I can shape your minds and inspire you to actions.
Do I have any influence over you? Am I accountable to you? What is this accountability? Do I have any responsibility towards you? Can I mislead you through my personal biases and prejudices? Can I misinform you through presentation of facts and figures that serve my biases and prejudices? Can I misguide you to commit actions that are contrary to national and public interests? Do I have to follow any morals or ethics? Do I need to listen to you?
Can I lead you to anything I want you to do?
I need your help-please guide me.
