A second heartwarming story on Twitter in one day and not a story about a bunch of trolls? How? I never knew this was even possible.
Okay, keeping all the jokes aside, I would just like to say Twitter is having a good day today. First, there was a son who helped his dad who was about no customers showing up at his donut shop with the power of social media and now, a huge company took out the time to give the perfect response to a little boy with big dreams.
Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas, an Australian airline took the time to respond to 10-year-old Alex Jacquot who had sent him a handwritten letter asking for advice about his own airlines called Oceania Express. Just look at the adorable little letter!
He's already working on his dreams and has tried to set up everything, he's so serious about achieving this that he wrote to a man who he knows can guide him. This kid is going places, I can tell you that right now.
Well, a CEO of big company is obviously busy but I still can't get over how Alan Joyce took out the time to give a proper response to Alex. After all, CEOs help out other CEOs. Here's the letter Alan sent back to Alex:
Such a good way to encourage a little kid to go and achieve his dreams. You already know that Alex is going to remember this letter his whole life, and it will probably motivate him as well.
Look at how happy he looks!
Our competitors don't normally ask us for advice, but when an airline leader reached out, we couldn't ignore it.
Naturally, there was only one way to respond: CEO to CEO. pic.twitter.com/JTFpzn5a6Y
Everyone will be flying with Oceania Express in a few years.

As a former Qantas employee, I could not be more proud than I am right now to be affiliated with a company (that I will always feel part of). Well done, Alan.— âHeather Forresterâ (@itsme_heather) March 11, 2019
Love all the hashtags.
Hats off to Alan Joyce & @Qantas What an opportunity for Alex and all those Oceania Airline employees. I hope we see Oceania Airlines in the skies one day! #dreambig #dreamscancometrue #ifyoucandreamityoucandoit #kidpower https://t.co/Y0UektKGOa— Justin Hill (@jedjnr) March 11, 2019
Young fans are important.
This is how business persons should respond to young fans.
And if you haven't flown Qantas, you're missing out on one of my favorite airlines, and a gorgeous country to fly over and visit. https://t.co/cgv8yZF79I
Seeing it posted on social media does make this more of a marketing exercise, but can't fault it if the end result is inspiring entrepreneurs of any age. Well done Qantas.— Jason Bowman (@freakdesign) March 11, 2019
He's coming for you!
Brilliant! - And wonderful to see Catering is high on his list of priorities. Other Airline CEO's lookout! https://t.co/tRhnpnp6R5— Jeremy Clark ð¬ð§ð¨ðð²ð¾ (@Trayset) March 11, 2019

"Please take me seriously."
Alex is very relatable.
