Alone and homeless on the streets of Chicago, AnnMarie Walsh found comfort in Twitter. “It feels so good to know there is someone out there,” she said. “I could Tweet and there was always someone there listening.” Walsh was homeless for six years before she met a case worker at a Tweetup event who helped her find temporary housing. Her Twitter profile says she’s been off the streets since April 7, 2011. Walsh uses the Twitter handle @PadsChicago. The 41-year-old tweets to her more than 4,800 followers about what it was like to be homeless and also advocates for homeless people. When she was homeless, Walsh would tweet from her cell phone or use computers at her local library.
