Fab’s Journey – The Night Shift, NBC’s The Voice, Proposal of a Lifetime & Why We Love Twitter

[ 55 ] May 18, 2011 |

Last night I was tweeting after dark for a change. Well, actually, I am here every night, but this makes it sound cooler: tweeting, After Dark style. This is a journey to 1 million tweets, and there’s no way I am gonna get there by only tweeting 9-5.

You never know what happens on Twitter After Dark unless you are here. It is a what-happens-in-Vegas-stays-in-Vegas sorta thing… unless you read my posts. :P Tuesday nights are my favorite TV night. It is all about one show: NBC’s The Voice!  It is a constant topic of conversation between me and our fabulous friends: we just love the show so much and can’t wait for it to be on.

After four episodes of NBC’s The Voice, I have narrowed the winner down to two artists: Mr. Javier Colon @javstwtr and our fabulous friend @frenchiedavis. I will say it here right now: one of them will win!

Speaking of winning, there were lots of entries for our iPad2 contests, and I met lots of new people which I love. I’d like to send special shout-outs to @Cupcakecutiekit and @TheNerdyNurse, two of our new friends who are fabulous!

Hurry and get your entries in. For rules, see: iPad2 Contest & College Edition. These are going to be the last iPad contests!

A bunch of our regulars started to roll in during the middle of the night, and we all watched the most #fabulous video ever:

I think our friend Cindy said it best:

Both Nerdys were talking food at exactly the same time (isn’t that a jinx?):

We were tweeting Fabulous Savings to everyone and talking Zumba with our friend Andrea. C’mon, who doesn’t love a good Zumba class?

I can’t believe how time flies after dark. It was well after midnight, and I was still tweeting away with all of my tweeps. Crazy, but kinda cool. I was so almost ready for bed (practically sleeping at my desk) when our friend Natasha tweets:

I have come to the conclusion that Twitter is a gathering place that never closes, and I love it. You see I am a social kinda person, and I work for a social kinda company. And, well, I think we are all very lucky to have all of this. Don’t you think?

We at FabulousSavings love Twitter, just like how we love each and every one of our fabulous friends.

Tell us why you love Twitter. Be creative! We will randomly select one response to receive a $15 iTunes card to download songs from NBC’s The Voice or anything else you desire.

It is 2:15pm, and I have 971,181 tweets to go.

  1. Nothing at all signifies normal life superior to miley cyrus sex tape, along with I
    am talking about absolutely nothing. It has been mentioned in which the one thing inside modern society that
    may make it through the nuclear strike can be miley cyrus sex tape.
    This is improper, truly cockroaches are the thing which will survive the nuclear
    attack. Unquestionably you will find there’s url. How do
    this particular be spelled out? Certainly interest can eventually liberate from
    the powerful impact involving miley cyrus sex tape, but is not before
    most of us view a standardised professional insurance plan for all.
    What exactly everthing precipitates to help is dollars.
    Capitalists love miley cyrus sex tape.

    I agree w/ you – twitter is the place to go for some socialization that never closes . And seriously – being a SAHM who talks to a 32mo old all day – twitter can be a nice outlet for a slightly more adult conversation… Okay, who am I kidding, I’m usually still talking trains somehow! lol

    Twitter is #fabulous because I have met some of the funnest people on there. I know someone is always gonna be there when I go on and I can have a little fun. It’s amazing how we’re all over the country, the world and we come together and laugh & joke! It’s like a 21st century pen-pal! So fun! and I must say, since I found all of you @fabulousSavings it’s been a lot more fun!

  33. Jaryre says:

    It’s so simple. You can follow those people you like and unfollow at any time. Really cool, huh?

  34. Betty (1bets1) says:

    I love it because no one can talk too much!

  35. Kathleen Marler says:

    I love Twitter because it’s the only social network in which no family member sees what I post (YAY) – I also love having a reason to dress up…I love twitter parties, too, although at first I felt as though I was just talking to myself, I eventually got into it and began sipping a glass of wine and eating chocolate.

  36. Denise says:

    I love all the information that i get on twitter from new products to movie/tv and of course Fabulous savings. I love being able to ask questions and get real time answers from brands I love.


  37. Jeremy Liao says:

    Twitter is a great way to keep up-to-date with the rest of the world.

  38. All the hawt ladies hang out on Twitter! ;)

  39. bikeohio says:

    Where’s the bike story? I feel both mislead AND abandoned.

  40. Christie W says:

    I love that I’ve connected with new brands I didn’t know about (i.e.fabulous savings) and getting to make new friends. I met someone in Turkey who’s helped us plan our trip this fall. She even tweeted me a great airline discount…how cool is that?

  41. I love twitter because I can be friends with people I want to be friends with because we share a common interest and not just a common location.

  42. Brandy says:

    I think Twitter is #Fabulous, because I can follow @FabulousSavings to get in on all the deals!

  43. Gayle W says:

    One of the best things about Twitter is getting information real-time and getting behind the scenes info.

    I was talking to Tje Austin on Twitter while the TheVoice was on. I was talking to Jeff Probst when the Survivor finale was on.

    It’s really pretty amazing.

    And imagine this – an astronaut from the Space Station posted pictures from space of the Mississippi River flooding on Twitter this morning! Tweeting picture from the Space Station!! Wow!! Who could have imagined such technology?

  44. abitnerdy says:

    I love Twitter because its a place where I get to meet friends I wouldn’t have otherwise found! Yay! :)

  45. Lunachique says:

    I have won more fantastic things by twittering than I can remember, I never have to buy Christmas presents, and I have met so
    many wonderful friends! Jon Lovitz personally tweeted me this morning and he does every time I say hi to him! How rad is that?

  46. @LSAS1 says:

    I love Twitter b/c you can communicate with so many different people! Also, I learn so much. I think most of the breaking news now, I find out on Twitter :)
