When I woke up this morning, I felt compelled to write this post about Maynas Eric Chua, my best twitter friend. I first met Eric on #twitter in April this year.
Our encounter with each other was like a fairy tale story. I was responding to John Larkin, another twitter friend, calling for shouts about why we use #twitter. John was giving a presentation to the Singaporeans about the surge of twittering in social networking. Eric responded to one of my questions and I tweeted him back without even checking his profile. We have since become very good friends for a lot of reasons.
Eric has been a good friend because he inspires me and he believes in me. Through him, I have learned that I can do and achieve anything. He taught me to set goals and go for the things that I want in life. He keeps me company whenever I need to talk to somebody. He has introduced many of his friends to me and now I have the largest network of friends I ever have in my life. He is the person that has gained my trust from the moment he sent me his first tweet in April 15th 2009. I feel forever indebted to him for these reasons and for many others that I can not disclosed.
