The power of Twitter

I think it's cool when something I've posted on Twitter is retweeted. It means someone values my opinion. It might even lead to a new follower or two.

Say what you will about LeBron James, but plenty of people want to know what he has to say. On Tuesday, he tweeted at ESPN NFL reporter John Clayton, "When is the deadline for a team to sign a free agent?"

It was immediately a talking point on the Internet, and ESPN devoted a segment on some of its shows to analysts breaking down James' NFL chances. They even showed footage from his days as a wide receiver at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary.

Could you imagine tweeting an opinion and having it instantly blasted across multiple media platforms, reaching millions of people?

Perhaps the tweet is mightier than the sword, as well.
