I ♥ Twitter
If you want to really get to know me, just have a look at my Twitter feed.
I reveal a lot about myself, what I love and don't love, in those 140 characters - thoughts, cheese, recipes, rants, information, quotes, questions, places, photos and more.
And if you ask me, the Twitter community is the best!
Friends and followers on Twitter helped us when we were researching for a new place to live in France and when I was frantically searching for an apartment in Paris one winter. Through Twitter I was invited to spend an evening running around the Louvre, to impromptu Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations in Paris and to attend a camp for Cassoulet lovers in the heart of Gascony (I can't believe that was six years ago!).
Thanks to Twitter I have friends in Paris, Normandy and all over who keep me laughing, inspired and in the know.
Twitter is by far my favorite form of social media. Facebook is a close second, and I love sharing photos on Instagram and Pinterest, but they just don't have the same appeal.
As for Google+...well, I don't quite get it yet, but I'm hoping that will change one day soon.
My Twitter handle: @louloufrance
Hope to see you there!
A quick shout out and thank you to David Lebovitz, who reminded me yesterday that Google Reader is disappearing at the end of the month. If you subscribe to Chez Loulou using an RSS reader, you can migrate to one of the following: Feedly, Newsfire, Blog Lovin' or The Old Reader. If you're using an iPad or other mobile device, you'll find Flipboard useful.
