Re: So exciting!
Hmmm... can you not tweet to other people when your account is private?

Re: So exciting!
You can tweet other people but if they are not following you, they can't see it. I tested it this morning by tweeting you and I am guessing you never saw it. It's OK if it isn't possible.

Really I wanted to say thank you for writing an awesome book and I cannot wait to read the whole thing.

Oh, well I'll just follow you then! I didn't know about that.

Thanks, I hope you enjoy the rest of the book!
