I follow a lot of people on Twitter and occasionally will send a "tweet" out to a famous person with no response (obviously).
One day, I sent out a general tweet to everyone following me and said "Is it sad that I send out tweets to Rob Thomas in the hopes that he responds?"
About 5 minutes later, Rob Thomas tweeted me back, "So sad "
I almost fell out of my chair haha
If you don't know who Rob Thomas is, he is the lead singer of Matchbox 20, plus has a huge solo career. He has written some of my most favorite songs in the 90's and 2000's.
Anyway, that was my famous Twitter story.
Anyone else get a famous tweet?
Well, writer Paulo Coelho thanked me for retweeting a quote.
Lots of artists, musicians, broadcast celebs, but one is Karl Rove, who re-tweeted me by sending a message that said: Tnx. It is the encouragement of people like you that will keep me writing and speaking on behalf of the conservative cause. I thought that was really nice of him.
that must have pleased you no end, no i cannot say anyway famous has ever contacted me in any way at all......
Wow, Rob Thomas is probably one of the best composers of our time. Big fan=)

Earlier I used to hit the tweet button as soon as I published a new Hub no matter what time it was. Not any more. I realized that timing is the key on Twitter. If you tweet in the night when most of your followers are...
