When news broke that pro basketball player Jason Collins came out as gay, supporters—from fellow athletes to a former President—flocked to Twitter to send him words of support and thanks. In his Sports Illustrated story, he wrote, "I wish I wasn't the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, 'I’m different.' If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand." In this case, tweets of support are like virtual high-fives. Way to go.
