One tweet can lead to a friendship with a relatively successful boy band from the late 90's!

I love Twitter. I love that you can instantly connect with celebrities, politicians, and other interesting people with a click of a button. Occasionally, you might get a tweet back or a retweet. It's happened to people in our building. The Rob and Kat have been tweeted at by Nick Cannon and Coca-Cola, respectively. While those are cool, they definitely aren't on the level of BECOMING BEST FRIENDS WITH THE LYTE FUNKIE ONES (LFO)!

How did this happen? How was a friendship formed? Well, it started with a tweet I made a few weeks ago as a joke about my vocal exercises before I go on-air:

Girl on TV


Pretty standard fair for getting followed or retweeted by someone. Imagine my shock when they responded.



Duuuuuuuuuddddddeee. I'm probably gonna get to hang out with LFO in July. I don't care what you do on your Summer vacation but mine is gonna kick ass. I will keep you posted as to when this is going down.

To recap, here's how my night went:

  • Became Best Friends with LFO. The End

I look forward to see what happens and hopefully we can actually get an interview going. If you are still an LFO fan or have nostalgia for them, drop a comment below!

 

*Note: LFO currently consists of Devin Lima and Brad Fischetti. Original member Rich Cronin sadly passed away in 2010*
