You can go home again; how social media takes us back

Every morning, Jeff Pulver shouts out random “Good Morning” tweets. Maybe they are not random. Maybe he has a rotating plan or maybe he shouts out to people who are on twitter when he is. I don’t know.

But I do know that I watch for these good morning shout outs and each day, they take me back to my days as a puppy, growing up in St. Paul, MN and listening to the Boone and Erickson show on ‘CCO. Every day, at 6:00am, these guys would pick several communities to shout out to and then sign “Good Morning” from Singin’ in the Rain as sung by Debbie Reynolds, Gene Kelly & Donald O’Connor. I woke up to them every morning as a puppy.

A really short excerpted clip is below, but you can find all sorts of archived WCCO stuff here.

It’s a really small thing. No matter how complicated and new-fangled all this technology gets, ultimately it is about the human — or canine — experience. And the really cool side benefit for Jeff is he pretty much “owns” good morning on twitter.

What little thing on twitter takes you back?
