The people who use Twitter make it special because for any interest we might have, somebody is tweeting about it. We're lucky to have so many people using Twitter in so many interesting and important ways. This month, I celebrated my own birthday. It's a gift to be able to work with some of the most talented, thoughtful, and smart people I've ever known. It's because of them that my life has been made better.
