I'm beginning to wonder if Twitter is all it's cracked up to be. Yes, I have met some really smart and talented people on twitter, and I find all sorts of great information in most of my tweets. But, twitter is beginning to annoy me.
My life is pretty full right now. I'm busy from morning till night. It's difficult to fit twitter in during the day, but I feel as if I'll be missing opportunities if I ignore my tweeps. So, I go on twitter to my various accounts and tweet and RT and basically, just stress myself out.
Ok - a big part of the stress is having 5 twitter accounts. What was I thinking!?!
Another part of the stress of using twitter is that I want to announce the great stuff we're doing on BlogPaws, and on Lip-sticking and I want to support Mary, Donna, and Lena... and I want to make sure I don't offend anyone...and I want to play nice by following all my followers back and...
OMG! Today was the last straw! I threw up my hands and said, "Who cares?"
I don't care, anymore. I will use twitter more effectively by not worrying about who I follow back - if I am not following you and you are following me, it's likely I have not had time to login and see who you are, or I did login and saw who you are and ... I'm not seeing the connection.
I will visit each account twice a week and if I have time, I'll tweet. I'll share information that is relevant to that account and RT good content I see while I'm in twitter, and I won't worry about missing anything. Because I have so many resources - like my Lip-sticking readers - it's unlikely I'll miss anything important. And, if I tweet about my pet projects (yes, REAL pets) and folks Quit following me because of it, I won't care. If I tweet about women and it bothers someone, I won't care. And I will nag people for locking their accounts (really, what's the use - isn't it supposed to be 'social'?), along with nagging them for trying to get more followers, as if that's what's most imporant in life.
Ok...those are my twitter tweet tales. Do you have any? Do share!
