Here are the three things I either do not understand or hate most about the miniscule avian.
Number One. “ Visit this site to buy 10,000 followers for $27” Twitter rules say that this is not allowed – yet my tweet stream is clogged up with hundreds of sexy girls with unpronounceable names offering to do this for me. I am sure Twitter could easily stop this is they wanted to – it must clog up their systems too. For those of you who are not aware, these are fake accounts produced by robot machines. They get shut down after a while as Twitter realizes what they are, but surely it would be far easier to tackle the problem at its root!
Number Two. Every day I follow most of the people who have followed me overnight there are always a few that, when I click ‘follow’ it changes to ‘pending’ and gives me a message that the follower must approve my follow first. Huh? They followed ME First? Can anyone explain this?
Number Three. I am a shy and retiring individual who is easily hurt (?). Sometimes I will try to follow another writer or a service and get a message that I have been Blocked from following them! I go to their profile, they seem like nice people, but I do not know them and have not, to y knowledge upset them – why would they block me? – and before you ask I am NOT one of those people who keep following and unfollowing people. Once I follow you – you are permanently followed
I love Twitter, and despite the above I enjoy the interactions and I am grateful for the friendships i have developed . If anyone knows the answers to any of the questions above, I would be grateful to be enlightened. If you do not want to make a public post, please email me on email@example.com.
Finally, for more of my offbeat ramblings please do ‘like’ my facebook page - arthurcrandonauthor (I am not going to criticise FB – they put you in FB jail far too easily!) and follow me on Twitter - @arthurcrandon.
To lighten the load and ease the stress, various furry pics are here again. Enjoy. – Until next time.
