Twitter always has something good in its store –be it memes, opinions, or threads. We came upon one such thread – #ShareAStoryInATweet and it gave us all kinds of tales!
#ShareAStoryInATweet is quite self explanatory; you have to squeeze in a story in the character limit of a tweet. People latched onto this pretty quickly, and shared all of kinds of anecdotes. While some were full of love and inspiring, some were tragic as well. Either way, they were definitely worth the read.
Exercise your right and count your blessings people.
#ShareAStoryInATweet not my story but an Afghan man carried his disabled brother miles across the mountains so he could vote and? No media attention, not a soul. I lost the tweet but can we remember to fucking vote?

Imagine turning your life upside down like that.
I became a father. A few days later my wife hemoraged. A literal gallon of blood (9+ units) in a moment. You sat with me as I cried and broke down. I was about to become a single dad. But she lived, and now she works with you in the same ER, a fellow ER doc. #shareastoryinatweet

It is such a moving experience for both the parents and the kid who just got a family.
Walking into your foster parents’ house, heart thumping, doubts racing. You both were sat, hair brushed, little S fidgeting. “Who’s this?” your foster mum prompted. “Mummy and Daddy”. The first time I heard your voice. My heart cracked and burst open. #ShareAStoryinOneTweet

I can’t even imagine the pain.
I was at work when mom called me. I thought it was a joke. You just got out of rehab.
I saw the ambulance leaving the neighborhood as I was coming.
You died.. and I didn’t get to say goodbye
My greatest fear came true.. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

Crucial circumstances and unfortunate funny incidents go hand in hand.
I was a Bar student on a training weekend. You were a High Court judge. You sat at my dinner table and shared kindness and wisdom.
You didn’t know that I’d mistaken a jug of salad cream for custard and was choking on the worst treacle sponge of my life.#ShareAStoryinOneTweet

While this is an incident to be proud of, always remember that suicide is never the answer. Ever.
7 years ago today I attempted to take my life and ended up in ICU, comatose with a GCS of 3. I worked hard and got well with a lot of support from great nurses, doctors and allied health practitioners. Now I'm on clinical placement training to be a nurse. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

Everything happens for a reason.
20 yrs ago As a dishwasher, My boss fired me b/c she didn’t need me. Dejected & afraid I soon became a CNA. My 1st day at work, my 1st pt says “we need people like you in healthcare”. 4 degrees later, I’m an NP/PhD. Healthcare saved my life. Now I give back #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

There are still kind humans in this world that is full of cruel ones.
I was 1st on scene at an RTC, the rain was torrential as you lay in the road, I worked tirelessly to save you as your loved ones watched on, I lay cream roses where you left this world & drive there every day, I did my best, I can't forget#ShareAStoryInOneTweet

Every little step in the right direction counts in a very significant way, even if you don’t realize it then.
My story isn’t amazing
You are 99 and thought u were being burgled
I kept you company
I reassured you
I made you tea
I listened to your life story & I was amazed by it
Im happy the smallest thing meant so much to you & you went to bed knowing you were safe#ShareAStoryinOneTweet

Sometimes you wouldn’t even realize and have such a deep impact in a person’s life and they will always remember you with warmth.
U told me u were scared to die. I held ur hand & fed u lunch. U rubbed my cheek & told me I would be a great nurse one day. I seen ur obituary online in the weeks to follow. I’ll name my first born baby girl after u. YOU are why I will be an RN in 52 days. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

After the hashtag started, it slowly picked up more on the health care side, where people started sharing stories of survival and life.
One thing that can be said with certainty is that trends such as these are far more fruitful than any of the stupid challenges that people blindly follow. Let’s make such hashtags more popular and spread awareness about issues that need our attention!
