Earlier this week the Touretteshero Twitter account reached 8000 followers – a milestone.
I don’t normally focus much on numbers of followers, but I really do like counting random things, just to know how many random things there are! For example there are:
202 trefoil logos on my socks right now
172 triangles on Will’s bear jumper
and 83 leaves on the geranium
Five years ago Twitter was where I’d find people laughing about me and my tics after seeing me on a bus or a train. Now it’s where I share my tics and the laughter they generate, a place which has helped spread understanding of Tourettes and through which I’ve drawn support and found new friends.
To our most recent followers, welcome, it’s great to have you aboard – look out for my #dailyoutburst and for regular new blog posts. Together we can keep ‘Changing the world one tic at a time.’
