"Still new to this tweeter stuff," George Brett wrote a couple of days ago. That was before Brett's beloved Labradoodle Charlie ran away from his Mission Hills, Kan., home last night. In a matter of hours, Brett turned into a tweeter expert as he harnessed the crowdsourcing powers of the internet to bring Charlie home.
Trying to get #FindCharlie trending on Twitter? Check. Begging for RTs? Check. Tweeting at famous people? You betcha. Brett did his best to appeal to all possible searchers, from mercenaries who just wanted to know how much the reward was, to animal lovers with the heartbreaking fact that Charlie "is afraid of the rain." (Holy crap, that's sad.)
The saga has a happy ending: this morning, Brett reported that Charlie had been found safe and sound. Just another night on tweeter.
