The power of social media can not be over-estimated. Through the different social media platforms, some have met their spouses; met strangers who became their best friends and families; connected to huge business opportunities; gotten justice, among other things.
For Emem Uwah, twitter has been a blessing and she hopes positive things would continue to happen for her through the platform. Emem had been unemployed and wanted to move to Ibadan, where she felt there was more opportunities but she did not know how to go about it. So, she tweeted about it and some people sent her messages on how they could be of help to her and they actually came through for her.
Surprisingly, she is yet to meet her helpers and they do not want her to mention their names. She met them all on twitter!
Twitter gives me joy, On this app, someone helped me with my rent On this app, someone helped me look for a house in Ibadan On this app, Someone helped me move from Oyo Town to Ibadan. On this app, someone encouraged me to hold and stay strong that everything was going to be ok
On this app, someone kept sending job opportunity links to me. On this app, someone paid for ulcer drugs. And the one that has really made me happy this month, which I’m so glad to let y’all know is… Someone on this app referred me to a friend who employed me
Dear Twerps, finally I have a place to stay in IBADAN. I now go out every morning, telling my neighbors I’m off to work. Depression is gone. I am Happy. October is just a start of something New.
I now trust in the Magic of New Beginnings. I haven’t even met most of these people that helped me. Twitter ain’t so bad as people portray it. I just want to thank these people who looked out for me, especially the ones I’m yet to meet. God bless y’all
For helping me get my life together. I know the start is always rough, but y’all have taught me to take it ONE STEP AT A TIME. No more suicidal thoughts. I never knew Adulthood could be stressful, but y’all have taught me how to be strong.
The start may not look so good but I still have that strong feeling that I’m still gonna get my dream job through someone on this app. Twitter saved my life. They are so many wonderful people on this app and I’m glad I didn’t come across the bad ones
