A marathon of a different kind…
The Reliance Jio Tweetathon was an experience worth its weight not in gold, but in unlimited lifetime internet. This initiative by Jio to connect with some of the best minds in the country and give them a chance to exhibit their quirky and innovative ideas on a platform which is no alien to them, was exhilarating to say the least.
For the entire duration of the event, everyone was glued to their smartphones and laptops, typing away to glory while the most popular songs belted away in the background. The excitement was palpable and infectious, such that even a dead person would rise from his grave. Each lap was a test of grit and determination, interspersed with loud cheering and clapping for our respective colleges.
The 42 minutes passed by in a flash and at the end of event, I had tweeted almost 150 times (and to think it took me more than 6 months to reach 250 tweets prior to the event!) #AchievementUnlocked. Truly, events like these should be conducted more often as it gives us a chance to do what we do best i.e. social networking.
Jio, are you listening?
