Did you meet someone exceptional or learn something extraordinary through Twitter?
I’m giving a Twitter workshop for mental health researchers and clinicians next week (4 July 2012) and would like to share some inspirational Twitter stories with them. Please tell yours in the comments!

This incident (the flooding) was horrifying and scary and the entire country was glued to the television and other media channels watching the disaster unfold. Twitter became part of how the communities geographically close to the floods pulled together and rebuild. Twitter was a cry for help, an information service and a support network.
Thank you Susan, that’s a very powerful story. Hope you won’t have to experience this helpful side of Twitter again..
