Prior to the tweet, I spend 15 minutes on the phone with this person who vented about her issue with a class she was failing.

Extremely Humbling Experience at #SAtechBOS

A-Ha Moments, Speaking No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Look! My Wife’s in Wired Magazine for Ghost Twittering

ACbert, Media/PR No Comments by Tom Krieglstein
