Yep, a little known fact about me is that I am available just about any time to answer questions on Twitter or by Email and if you ask a really good one I may just highlight you on this here blog…and answer the question of course.
I have a lot of opinions….and some of them are about Twitter.
Mostly I love Twitter and don’t know what I would do without it…that being typed there are a few things that irritate me.
But first the great stuff! (and I am not sure I am going to do 10 of each but here we go)
1- Twitter lets me stay in touch with people I care about better than anything else…especially when I am really busy.
2- Twitter is my news feed and keeps me up to date on things as well as celebrity deaths.
3- Twitter is an amazing resource of opinions and idea…as well as a great place to get instant feedback on things.
4- I love Twitter because people think I am funny. (doesn’t happen anywhere else)
5- Twitter gives me access to important and otherwise unobtainable folks so I can discuss things with them.
6- I love when people I have never met engage me in a conversation…it is fun!
I could go on and on but I think you get the point…so here are a few quick thoughts on the other side of the coin.
1- People put too much value in their following/follower stats. I follow people based on if they are interesting or pretty. Also personally, I have never asked a single person to follow me because the number of followers you have should mean nothing in the overall picture of how you use twitter.
2- I RT a bit and love when people RT my stuff but at the same time I wish people would create more original content and not just RT 90% of the time. I want to hear your ideas and thoughts so I can get to know you. RT’ing is an important part of Twitter but you have to still let yourself shine through.
3- I wish it was a little more playful and silly sometimes and not just a place to promote your stuff (something I am guilty of sometimes).
4- Auto DM’s……nuff said!
5-When porn accounts follow me the pictures they use are so small I cant even enjoy it for a second before I block them 🙂
So Beth…not sure if this is the list you were expecting but I hope this might start a conversation and the list can grow from there.
