I’ve used twitter for several years, but my use of it changed once I made an account for my blog. It became a quick, easy platform for sharing my life in Germany with other bloggers, expats, and curious travelers. I looked back over everything I tweeted during our year in Germany and now I’m sharing the best and most informative tweets here. I tweeted about what we learned, dealing with homesickness, some of my favorite German jokes, and all the confusion we encountered as expats (there was so much confusion).
