February may be the shortest month, but there’s a lot of energy packed in those 28 days.

It’s Black History Month. We’ve also got Groundhog’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and the Super Bowl. Many of our WordPress friends participated in WordCamp Asia, too!

Here are the best WordPress tweets from February.

Ice breakers

Principal Engineer and Product Designer Mike McAlister knows that at its core (pun intended) WordPress is pretty darn awesome, and it hasn’t always gotten the love it deserves.

A tweet from Mike McAlister layered over a purple background that reads "WordPress powers nearly half the web, and is finally getting all the powerful site building tools that creators have come to expect from a CMS. But the positioning, marketing, developer experience and relations have virtually never matched the capability of the software."

Freelance web developer Dan P wanted to know if WordPress is the way to go when spinning up a new site. We like to think it’s the simplest and best, TBH.

A tweet from Dan P layered over a purple background that reads "WordPress is the simplest way to get a new site up and running for a client. Right or wrong?"

Entrepreneur Steve Chou talked about wanting to blog for a while and then gave some sage advice.

A tweet from Steve Chou layered over a purple background that reads "I wanted to start a blog for years before I did. I was scared of writing, scared of wordpress, scared of failure. Then I started and found it was easy. Lesson. Just start."

A little spicy…

Software developer David R. MacIver didn’t mince words, it’s clear where WordPress stands with him.

A tweet from David R. MacIver layered over a purple background that reads "Top feature requests for substack all seem to be "could you be almost as good as wordpress was a decade ago?"

Kinsta’s @Tomzur makes a great point about newbies to WordPress. Many don’t know the difference between .org and .com. Nexcess has a blog about that.

A tweet from Tomzur layered over a purple background that reads "It's been 20 years but WordPress' one main problem is the .org and .com questions. Newcomers are confused and really don't know which one they need, or which one to choose. Convince me that I'm wrong."

… but a lot more sweet

GoDaddy Project Manager Justin Nealey captured amazing moments over at WordCamp Asia, and let us see the many faces of WordPress.

A tweet from Justin Nealey layered over a purple background that reads "Meet the Faces of #WCAsia edition. The incredible folks that help make #WordPress what it is today. Nothing can compare to what the power of this community has to hold. Thanks @godaddypro for letting me go on this trip and capture these special moments." Beneath that is a picture of short haired young man with a red shirt at Word Camp Asia.

OSS Capital Founder Joseph Jacks throws out a home run of a stat and reminds us of just how successful WordPress has become.

A tweet from Joseph Jacks layered over a purple background that reads "WordPress is only 9% away from powering the majority of websites on the entire internet. What an incredible achievement for an open source project, truly Linux level success."

Michelle Frechette, Director of Community Engagement at our BFF sister brand StellarWP, thanked the WP fam and also let us know just how much the organizers of #WCAsia rocked it.

A tweet from Michelle Frechette layered over a purple background that reads "Dear @WordCampAsia organizers. Thank you for the opportunity to share my heart with the #WordPress community. And for all the accommodations and concern for my experience here. With much love, Me." Beneath that is a photo of Michelle Frechette posing with a Word Camp Asia attendee.

Not that we have a definitive favorite or anything…

We like to stay objective but when a customer like Benjamin Muscolino reminds us why they stick with us, it’s hard to not want to shout it from the rooftops.

A tweet from Benjamin Muscolino layered over a purple background that reads One of the leading articles from @7amCyber today brought me to @TheHackersNews today which pointed me at a company I do a LOT of registrar business with @GoDaddy. Whoa. I'll be dropping hosting here and sticking with @nexcess for all my WordPress I guess." Beneath that is a link to a thehackersnew.com article.

Tweet #WordPress all month if you feel lucky! You just might be featured. And as always, join us next month for the best tweets of March.
