Yes, I put an exclamation mark after her name because she is AMAZING!!!
I met her on Twitter. Actually, it was one of those situations where someone retweeted a tweet of hers and she was arguing with someone. Passionately.

I wondered, ‘Who be this one again?’ and went to her profile page, and read some tweets and thought, ‘She speaks her mind sha’ and then followed a link and read a story, then another, then another , then I went back to Twitter and promptly followed her. She’s off Twitter now. Either that or she’s blocked me for stalking her and being a creepy fan girl, but she’s here now, so please meet Kiah!
