I Own Westchester Twitter and Bethenny is my Twitter Pal!

by Dagmar Bleasdale on August 2, 2010

Last Friday I participated in Follow Friday on Twitter, like I do every week. You list the names of fellow tweeters you like and follow and add the hashtag #ff so that other people can easily find those tweets.

I always find so many new, interesting people to follow because when I’m mentioned in a #ff tweet I check out all the other Twitter users that are also listed.

Well, last Friday I was mentioned in two really fun #ff tweets:

HoldemTalkRadio @AnahiSpain_Team @TheLookingSpoon @gr8_arshad @bkmacdaddy @Dri_kah_ @bossybisi @DagmarBleasdale @FLA_NEWS_DF @SphynxAll @Bethenny #ff

If you want to see what the tweet looked like, here you go (he has the worst Twitter background I’ve ever seen :)

I’m mentioned in the same tweet as Bethenny Frankel? How fun! I adore this The Real Housewives of New York City cast member and am addicted to her new show, Bethenny Getting Married?

Bethenny reminds me so much of myself in that she says what’s on her mind — all the time.

We both have a hard time editing ourselves and get in trouble for it sometimes, and we both don’t have a problem making fun of ourselves.

Interestingly enough, I had just watched the latest episode of her show. (BTW, what a stupid title — she is clearly married by now and the title doesn’t fit any longer — but here I go with being so opinionated).

I had just stopped crying over seeing how happy she was after her daughter’s birth and how sweet her husband Jason Hoppy was reacting to becoming a father — and the fact that she is actually breastfeeding Bryn, yay! — when I read that tweet.

And then I found the most amazing tweet in my @DagmarBleasdale inbox:

WestchesterLive #FF @DagmarBleasdale Because she OWNS Westchester Twitter! And her tweets are consistently interesting.

Woot?! This is what that tweet looked like. (David has one of the best Twitter backgrounds).

I don’t know what’s more exiting — that he thinks I OWN Westchester Twitter — I clearly don’t, I’m No. 2 after my Katonah “neighbor” Martha Stewart who has 1,965,753 Twitter followers compared to my 7,078 — or that he thinks my tweets are “consistently interesting.”

I do put a lot of thought into my tweets, I try to make them funny or informative, and I retweet a lot of tweets that I think my green, frugal, natural birth fan, breastfeeding, attachment parenting, social media-addicted followers will benefit from.

I’ve never met David, but this made my WEEK! I guess Don will have to take all my tweeting seriously now.

Thank you so much, David, for those kind compliments! You saved a marriage.

And Martha, thanks for following my tweets. I had a lot of fun at your blogging show. I hope to run into you in Katonah one of these days — standing in front of a poster of you just isn’t the same.

I never watch reality shows or stars but I accidentally stumbled upon Bethenny Getting Married and now I’m addicted too! She’s grounded and funny and honest – and so cool that she’s breastfeeding.

I think I have to get on Twitter . . .

To be #2 to Martha is pretty awesome! You go, girl! You’re definitely a great follow and you obviously have a diverse following. :-)
