BUCKHEAD, GA — There’s power in the keyboard, and that’s exactly what SAE Institute Atlanta student Kenny Jones discovered when he tweeted a question to Twitter directly. “How do I get my tweets to be on a billboard?!?!??” The August 2019 tweet fell on his official Twitter 10-year anniversary month and on Monday he was in for a surprise.
A copy of the exact 10-year-old tweet was plastered onto a billboard in Buckhead at 3081 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta. The Boston native, who has lived in Atlanta since 2003, learned about it when Twitter messaged him directly. The company retweeted his reaction, which had been shared 464 times as of Monday.
