Like many, I was someone who thought Twitter was for sad people who considered anoraks the height of fashion, who went home to the cat and ate microwave meals on a Saturday night.
Well, if that’s the case, then I’m sad, very sad.
(For the record, I do have a cat but no anorak or microwave meals ;))
I love tweeting. So much so that I’ve started to help my friends get on it.
I’m the worst kind of convert – a missionary.
I love the idea that I can have a reach far and wide. That I can let the world (or at least those who follow me) know my opinions. It makes me feel powerful, sought after, wanted.
But aside from self-gratification that just proves how pathetic I really can be when I put my mind to it, what’s with these spammers?
I mean, what is the point?
They follow me but I don’t follow them. They have a product – I think – and I’m supposed to…what?
Get their free Twitter book?
I find it bizarre. I guess I’m not their target market.
And who cares how many followers I have, anyway? Isn’t it about quality, not quantity?
People that really want to hear what I have to say, or potential customers or even, now here’s a thought – a potential client who wants to hear what I have to say?
So maybe I’m missing a big point here. But I don’t think so.
It seems to me that being front of mind to a group of like-minded people whose lives you may be able to positively impact is the key.
Constantly swashing your thoughts and your image across their brains.
Sounds like some kind of thought-control.
Good grief, this is doing my head in…
Do you tweet? Do you love it or loathe it? And are you a quantity or quality person when it comes to followers? Let me know in the comments!
