- For All You Twitter Users
I used to hate Twitter, but then I actually tried using it for a while and realised it’s great if you choose who you’re following wisely. I find myself posting morePosted 6 years ago
inaneessential updates on Twitter than Facebook these days, particularly as the former will automatically copy the post onto Facebook anyway.bigdonxMember
Me – @bigdonx – I too was an anti-Twitterist until I recently decided to dabble with it to investigate its use as a “business tool”……….now I think it’s genius!
On the other hand FB has its uses, but I can’t be arsed with its default lack of discretion, plus Facebook is possibly the stupidist name for anything, ever!Posted 6 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
I hate twitter … Haven’t used it but I hate it – especially when companies use it for proper announcements (is that guerilla marketing because I hate that even without knowing what it is, for appropriating a pseudo-edgy description – just like ghetto tubeless. I like to know who to hate 😉 ).
Wading through all the banal shite that people put up in the hope you’ll find something useful seems a waste to me. Why not use yr website and put the news on there and keep the bullshit for twitterPosted 6 years ago

A twitter user who has posted in this thread is getting in a bit of a pickle about people following him….
it’s bizarre that people follow you but never contact you at all, i add people to interact with them not just watch, it’s kinda creepy. i can understand the spammers hoping you’ll look at their profile advertising their business, but silent followers just seem to “collect” followsPosted 6 years ago

From my limited experience (I don’t have hoards of followers), that’s pretty much the norm. Anyway, I’ve been following you for 24 hours and said hello today 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Rocketdog – I don’t think you are getting it – I can’t interact with you, because you don’t follow me!
It works two ways. I follow people because I’m interested in what they are tweeting about – about 95% of the people I follow are in the world of mountain biking. I do tweet stuff, but you’re not going to see it because you don’t follow me.Posted 6 years ago
ah maybe I misunderstood…Rocketdog, are you saying that you wonder why people following you are so quiet in general, ie, don’t tweet anything, or that they don’t tweet to @rocketdog directly? As wallop says, you need to be following me if you want to see any tweets I make that aren’t @rocketdog (which is 99.999% of them 🙂 )Posted 6 years ago
No, it’s not difficult, but because you don’t follow me, I assume that you don’t want me to appear in your twitter feed, and therefore don’t want to hear from me.
not too difficult surely? then i’d be more likely to reply than just recieving a notification by email that gets buried in all the other spam
