Twitter Party: Close Even If Far Away #CricketContigo

Gone are the days when we had to think twice about calling up our mamá or loved one in Latin America just to say ¡Hola! while keeping a faithful eye on the clock to make sure we didn´t talk so much we would later shiver at the sight of the phone bill. Technology is bringing us closer in so many ways and allowing us to share even the smallest, yet intimate and all-important, moments with those friends and family who are far away from us in distance, yet not in remembrance.  The upcoming holidays are definitely filled with special moments we want to make sure we share with those we love, no matter where they are, and at little to no cost to any of us.
