A ‘twitter-master’ silenced. Mourning my social media friend, Imad.
September 7, 2011 6 Comments
Imad Naffa was a revolutionary presence in not only social media, but what we call the ‘AEC’ community (architecture/engineering/construction). He was brilliant with content, a master of efficiency, an innovator with technology….and a friend. Yes, a social media friend.
When I direct messaged him on Twitter today (12:23PST) asking “Friend….are you alive??” – I thought it was a joking way to reach out to Imad. Since he was the most responsive and amicable person, I wondered why I hadn’t heard from him….
I first encountered Imad on a ‘best of twitter’ list, and immediately we connected. I posted about these twitter greats being my idols – out of the four, Imad was receptive, thankful and always willing to help! It was a great pairing, for both social media trends and our AEC industry interests.
You will be missed, Imad. Your impact was widespread, and your influence was cutting-edge. I am sorry to hear of your passing and prayers for the Lord to bring you to His kingdom, and for healing of your friends & family still with us. I will miss your coaching and support!
