Ben Franklin kept a very exacting schedule. As part of his routine he would ask himself two questions. In the morning he would ask, What good shall I do this day? And each evening, he would reflect by asking, What good have I done today? I’ve always found these questions to be an incredibly inspiring guide to my day.
On Tuesday I had the idea to create a simple Twitter web app, that allows you to quickly share your responses to the daily questions and see the good others plan to spread. It went from idea to a working site in less than 24 hours. With that in mind, please be gentle, it is not without a few bugs.
Each morning the site asks the morning question and aggregates tweets using the #MorningQ hashtag:
In the evening the color scheme reverses, asks the evening question, and aggregates tweets using the #EveningQ hashtag:

I’d love to see these hashtags take off and spread some positive messages throughout the Twitterverse.
