Dave on Wheels responds to the Chivers! (11 Photos)

When Sarah Hill discovered Dave on Wheel's Twitter Page, he had 8 followers. Sarah couldn't believe how insightful and funny the profoundly deaf paraplegic with cerebral palsy was. She friended him, followed by Erin Willett, and Dave's following quickly grew to 800 until I posted this story about Dave yesterday. In less than 24 hours, Dave has eclipsed 7,500 Twitter followers.

It's fascinating how technology has unlocked the genius bottled up in Dave. Dave uses a special computer called Tobii to type, it can read his visual instructions. And then there's Twitter, the vehicle that carries Dave's hilarious insights out to the world. A couple short years ago none of what is happening now would even be possible.

Many of you probably noticed Dave's Twitter Machine was silent for most of the day yesterday until Dave's sister hopped on his Twitter to update the Chivers. Dave had a crucial procedure during the day. On a day when Dave needed positive vibes the most, the Chivers delivered it in spades.

Later in the evening, Dave's Twitter machine sprung to life. He was so appreciative for the support as you'll see below. Dave has some very difficult days ahead of him right now, Chivers. He needs all the support he can get. Yet even after a grueling day, Dave didn't complain one bit. Right until the moment when the nurse turned off the lights, Dave was making jokes.

Dave's Twitter Machine.

    • T.J.

      Dude, why are saying "First" on this gallery. be considerate to this kid. No one cares about being "First" how about saying "Hope you're doing well god bless" Learn to be Human in this world.

  • AB

    I say we throw a meetup at Dave's place! How awesome would that be?

    • Dan

      it would be pretty different, as the post yesterday said he was in the hospital. would probably be a huge moral boost for him as well as for everyone else seeing how many people would show up.

    • Wiley

      That would be pretty cool. Or we could try to make one of his dreams come true, like a make-a-wish kinda thing. I say we hear what he wants.

  • Chiver

    I started following him yesterday after the post, his tweets bring a huge smile to my face and definitely give me a much needed boost in the day.

    • SirCtheIII

      As someone who also swore this, one day you'll realize that by having a twitter account you are technically a twat.

      But it's people like this that make it so worth it! Chive on.

  • stephen

    chive on dave on wheels! you rock and are a true inspiration to us all! looking forward to seeing your posts as a main stay on the chive.

  • http://www.facebook.com/BOP2thaDOME Rob Tompkins

    I Love when Chive posts stories like these. It really makes me happy to see that our Chive community cares so much about someone they have never met before. That is why I am on theChive every second I get. To Daveonwheels: You are one strong guy and don't ever be afraid to ask us, your fellow chivers and chivettes, for anything that you think could help make your days brighter and happier. KCCO MY MAN!
