Twitter, my hero

Yesterday, I knocked out approximately 12 hours of work for grad school research paper #2. (Still more to go.)

I updated my Twitter account a few times with my progress, noting that I took a day off of work for the paper. Several of my classmates replied that they were also planning to take days off of work for the paper.

My professor was monitoring my Twitter account and emailed me last night to see if I needed an extension. After checking with some of my classmates on Twitter (who were complaining as well) my professor eventually moved back the due date for the paper by a week for the entire class.

The crowd spoke. Change happened. More so than Obama, Twitter is making a more perfect union possible.
