#SysAdminLifein5Words - Best Tweets from SysAdminDay, Add Yours

Blog Post created by megan.gay Expert on Aug 14, 2015

On July 31st, we celebrated SysAdmin Day at VMTurbo. From a blog post deeming all SysAdmins King for a Day, to a special edition email, and my personal favorite (as the social guru for VMTurbo) a Twitter contest, it was a fun day at VMTurbo.

 

Twitterers were asked to tweet about their SysAdmin Life in 5 words by using the hashtag #SysAdminLifein5words.  The twitterer who earned the most RTs by midnight on August 2nd won a $100 gift certificate to ThinkGeek and swag to the person with the most RT's on a #SysAdminLifein5words tweet.

 

The winning tweet:

Not only do I want to recognize our winner, PoppaTechy, but everyone who shared with us and celebrated SysAdmin Day.
