I guess having over 300,000 followers on Twitter can be a good and bad thing. The bad is I can’t possibly follow or know each and every person who follows me, but the good is that when I get so many insanely smart and wonderful responses to things I tweet. I would love to RT (ReTweet) them all and share them on my Twitter feed, but sometimes I get so many awesome responses I can’t give credit where credit is due. So I decided, based on a Twitter I did this morning, to share some of my favorites. My Twitter:

A bit surreal, but hey, I hadn’t had coffee yet. I got SO MANY responses that can be classified in several ways.
tashabear @feliciaday Fairies must take the long view in regards to transportation.
Xandarr2112@feliciaday Why is that? Their flight speed is so much faster than their mounts can move.
bernardx@feliciaday I get uber depressed when I see smashed snails. Just looks so sad. They come out during the rain and I wanna yell “run”!!!
caliclia@feliciaday I love snails (because they are mounts for fairies :)) but my friend accidentally broke one’s shell as we were getting coffee 🙁
Hilarious, I actually found her friend’s response: WrockDinahSaur@feliciaday I would like to mention (as @caliclia‘s friend) that it was an accident and I moved it to safety so it could try and recover!
bytheshoreline@feliciaday You just reminded me of when I was little and made a tiny fairy world in my backyard. Can’t remember if there were snails 😉
CJArabia@feliciaday I always pick up snails and move them off the sidewalk so they don’t get stepped on.
tinytigers@feliciaday That is so sweet. I cried as a kid when my mum used to pull weeds in the garden, as that’s where I thought the fairies lived.
meld82@feliciaday ahhh snails would be a painful starting mount. I imagine they would lvl up fast and move on to dragonflys or butterflies
autographedcat@feliciaday Ok, now I want a giant snail mount in WoW. And it’s all your fault.
BlackDan@feliciaday or you could collect the trail and make cough syrup…http://tinyurl.com/cwpszm although in LA you may not get a cold…
SethTaurus@feliciaday Snails are considered incredibly GOOD LUCK in Buddhist Philosophy~They represent Security of the home and are good Karma ^^
taterunino@feliciaday If you want to keep them out of your plants and flowers, string some copper wire around the borders. They dislike the feel of it
Tourach@feliciaday Fairies use corgis as mounts also; one of the best things about the breeds.
domicileblog@feliciaday I garden and I like snails 🙂 Now slugs are another story…
steph_sanger@feliciaday Snails I can deal with but not slugs. Yorkshire specialises in brown slugs that look like turds. Only evil goblins ride slugs.
MrDave2176@feliciaday Which is why fairies are perpetually the last one to arrive at most parties.
geeksdreamgirl@feliciaday Note to Fairies Using Snail Mounts: Do not drink margaritas with salted glasses while riding. Tequila shots, also right out.
And my Favorite SURREAL:
mansonovic@feliciaday – Hate snails. Their lack of any intensity terrifies me.
Thank you Twitterverse for making my day! And who said Twitter wasn’t a creative, diverse way to share things 🙂
