Twitter Waste Of Time
I’ve had a Twitter account now for 12 months – and for the first time ever – my followers now outnumber the people I follow.
However I’ve come to the conclusion that Twitter is nothing but a waste of time.
Sold to many people (like me) as a “must do” for social engagment and building a blog/website audience it just sucks.
Its taken me a year to build a following/follower base – and for the first time yesterday my followers outnumbered the people I’m following – does it matter ???? – not one bit.
No one appreciates the fact that I follow them, and no one reads the tweets that I put out.
Yesterday I tweeted this…..
to over 2,000 followers – not a single favourite/reader/liker.
So why bother with it ……….. because some so called media expert says that its “ESSENTIAL” ?
Take a look at my stats
2191 people who dont read anything I write – and 2190 people who I dont read or care about either.
I get so many notices – messages – alerts etc…… it all just becomes spam – which gets ignored
Twitter for me now, is just a medium where people can follow celebrities – and those celebrities rarely engage back with their readers, because their accounts are managed by publicists.
I feel as though I have to keep my Twitter a/c open – because it will affect my websites ranking in search engines – however its just a waste of time and energy – twitter waste of time
