TWITTER


I appear to be blocked up on twitter.  A while ago I read an article that said if you want to reach a million followers you have to do the following - you follow back EVERYONE who follows you and then you unfollow anyone who unfollows you.  Simple.  By doing this your follower base will grow like cannabis in California, like chin hairs on an old lady, like... well you get the idea. 



So I did that - I followed everyone, but it turned out that four out of five followers were commercials like PNeurology Jobs and Lose Three Pounds Fast.  Then there is the woman who can counsel you through a divorce and Dr. Marsha and a man who looks like FDR. 

 I don't know what his story is but I have this overwhelming desire to vote for him.




 No doubt there are scary people on twitter.  I opened one tweet that was a porno download.  That freaked me out and when I learned how to block this person the twitter had already disappeared.  Spooky.


The ghost of Poncho is getting his revenge for taking him to North Carolina when he was sick

Everyone day I gained three or four new twitter followers and lost two or three so I was inching up there pretty steadily.  Now it's stopped and I don't know why.  I am not gaining nor losing anyone.  It's like a black hole of twitterdom.  I am frozen at 732 and have been for about a week.  Isn't that odd?  I just peeked over there again and the same 732 are there.  I think they are gathering in the back yard.  They're like Stepford Tweeters or something.  Valley of the Twits.



THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TWITTER BUT I JUST RECEIVED A PICTURE ON MY PHONE FROM A FRIEND IN CHICAGO - DARCY AND FITZWILLIAM IS BEING SOLD AT THE DEPAUL UNIVERSITY BOOKSTORE.  I DIDN'T EVEN GO TO DEPAUL - (Richie did but still)  AND SHE SAID IT'S IN THE CHICAGO LIBRARY!!!  Sorry I had to get that out of my system.  This is getting to be pretty exciting.

I find twitter an odd beast. I changed the way I do things. I follow fellow writers and whoever seems interesting but I don't unfollow people unless they've become tedious - spammers and those that wish to discuss religion and politics frequently. I hope to get followers but I'm hoping for a good experience and entertainment more.

Thanks for the laugh this morning! :) Twitter still confuses the heck out of me. I reply to comments and then can't find where or if they respond back. I'm so sad. LOL But determined to figure it out, so it's all good. I think I'm already following you, but I'll go check.;) Best of luck with your Book!! Congratulations!!!

Well, as soon as this blog went up my twitter problem seemed to ease. The twitter gods are appeased for the moment.

I don't think I'm good at social networking because I need to know who everyone is. You are one of 5 people I follow on Twitter. You are right next to Nacho on the Follower's avatar bar -a good place to be. I only know two of the three people following me. What made that unknown person want to follow me?? It's made me feel obligated to tweet more often, even tho it's nonsense. I can't be a slacker to the unknown.

I am in awe of your Twitter headcount.
