    Wow, you couldn’t have picked a more perfect person to share her Twitter experience and advice than @AnnTran_! And Ann, you couldn’t have written a more perfect post!

    I remember the first time that Ann RT’d me! I was giddy with excitement that she was paying attention. And just as Ann said, I remember when someone posted something similar about their joy at being RT’d by me. It is a wonderful cycle to be able to give back and listen and help others feel good and inspired. Great tips for Twitter. It’s my preferred network as well!

    I’m delighted you have featured Ann as she is one of the most genuine people who I’ve connected with in the social media world.

    Always positive and interesting and able to find time to interact with others despite the demands of an ever growing army of admirers. Modest too as she hardly mentions her own excellent blog!

    Thank you Ivo for inviting Ann and congratulations to you both for an excellent interview :-)

    Ann Tran personifies what social media is all about…personable, giving, inspirational and supportive! I remember when I first connected with her, being surprised how down-to-earth she was despite having a huge following. It’s so nice to see Ann being featured in this “Who’s who”! She’s a wealth of information, a savvy lady and someone I’m so glad to have met on Twitter!

    I think it’s hard for people who don’t tweet to understand what makes Twitter exciting and satisfying, but I think Ann captures it accurately. And she is just as generous in person as she is on line, which is why it’s fun tweeting with her.

    Great post! Ann tran is an amazing person as well as a great social media star. When I came across her Twitter profile, I just couldn’t stop myself sharing her quotes. Her tweets have always inspired me. And when she RTed my tweets, my joy knew no bounds. I’m glad we’re friends now. Ann, you rock! Very well deserved. :)

    I began following Ann about a year and a half ago, thru a mutual twitter friend. Her stream was full of great quotes and links to beautiful photos and fascinating places. I started retweeting them before I actually knew what a RT was. The next thing I know I get a DM from her with the words “I love your enthusiasm”. I had maybe 10 followers at the time. She had well over 30,000 followers and yet she took the time to express her appreciation. It has been a pleasure to get to know Ann over the past year and a half and to see her get the recognition she deserves for all that she gives to the social media community, thru her posts, twitter stream, support of charities, etc…

    Congrats Ann! It’s always great to see someone shine after years of hard work. I remember the first time I RT-ed you. You were as gracious then as you are now.

    You are a giver, a “sharer”, an engager, and so much more. That goes a long way. Not just in the social space, but in life. Continued success…onward and upward!
