Open Letter to @TaylorSwift13 - The Final Update

This is the final post regarding Ms. Swift. Since my initial post and the follow up post, I have not heard back from Ms. Swift.

Some people would be angry or annoyed, but I'm not. She has over 5 million followers and people tweet to her every minute.

I'm actually proud of what I have seen these past 20 hours. I had teachers from all over the planet try and connect me to a singer to help my students with a project. Ms. Swifts songs do not make or break the project, but people wanted to help anyway. People continued to reach out to @TaylorSwift13 during the day. People tried connecting with other celebrities to help make the connection. It was truly inspiring.

I told the kids of the effort today and they were amazed. I estimate over 10,000 tweets were sent to her. I'm still a Top Tweet when you search her name on Twitter. My PLN is nothing short of amazing.

I'm sure many of my followers will be happy to hear I will be stopping the mass Tweets. Their columns will be safe from Taylor Tweets. :-)

Thanks to everyone who has helped me during this crazy Twitter adventure. I wish it had ended on a happier not, but it is what it is. If you want to send her a tweet from time to time, that would be nice. I need to get back to helping my kids complete The Epic Romeo and Juliet Project!

I will leave you these important words to live by,
