WINNIPEG — Rita Gordon only started using twitter a month ago.
This is the first message she shared with the Twitterverse.
My 1st tweet goes to @jannarden . I am 30, was totally willing to go sit in the back by myself at your concert in Wpg, but when I saw the price of the cheapest tickets.. where can I sell my kidney. Your fan since 1995, Rita Gordon! Xoxo

What happened next was a random act of kindness that garnered the attention of Jann Arden herself.
Twitter users started commenting on Gordon’s tweet about why the tickets were that price.
“I wasn’t being a troll or anything, I was just trying to make light of the fact that they were really expensive,” said Rita Gordon.
Then someone commented, “Please email me I just purchased you a 4th-row seat”
Pauline Ehle from Lloydminster, Alta., a complete stranger, bought Gordon prime seats to Jann Arden’s upcoming Winnipeg concert.
