I got on Twitter just before I moved away from Paradise in Nanakuli where I had lived for almost ten years. Soon I put a name on it and it became Platinum Horseshoe and ID of "nikaawa." And it was very elementary, not following many and of course, not many were following me. However I was soon following about 50 and I had 25 followers. Not too bad 2 to1 ratio is about right for my intended Tweets. And I found I could get another Twitter Account.

This one got the title from another of my blogs, Dancing Nights and ID "nikaawa2." The blog very soon got up out of single digit average hits per day but not much. Platinum Horseshoe twitter by then had about 100 following and 50 followers.The average hits per day on my regular blogs began to go up very nicely. I moved to Pearl City to be closer to the VA since my physical abilities were deteriorating and I had to go more often. I got a third Twitter Account which went through one name and now is Social Dance Oahu. It soon established higher average hits per day on the blog and also establish the popularity of each. There is also some indication of contact with the neighbor islands.

Town Dance blog remains number one mainly because the original readers establish by the good blogging of Calvin Ota. In Second place is Platinum Horseshoe with Social Dance Oahu in third place. The also rans have been Blogging Hawaii, now coming up strong and Dancing Nights, Ritmo Mestizo. They also have Twitter Accounts in their names. They are close enough so that whichever gets a steady Guest Blogger regularly will make it to the top. I am limited physically but I can get around on the Handi Van. But it is really up to the feedback we can get from our fellow dancers. The year 2018 looks good.
