Thread: OMG, I Have Done The Unthinkable!!

  1. #1

    Default OMG, I Have Done The Unthinkable!!

    This is so embarrassing. I have done the unthinkable. The unspeakable. I have brazenly broken my life long moral code of conduct. I have committed the ultimate sin, and become an apostate blasphemer. I have trashed whatever tiny fragment of credibility I might once have had.

    I have become a mere follower of the group consensus rat race. When Lynn finds out I'll have to erase about 162 posts from this forum and her blog. Angie is gonna put a big BOZO icon next to my screen name here on the forum. Mike is gonna automate all his communications with me for sure.

    Yes, it's done now, too late to take it back.

    I've become a member of the 21st century.

    I have a Twitter page!

    And now, it's YOUR job my friends, to make sure I don't make a big mess of it. Yes, you! You got me in to all this trouble after all.

    If you shy from this responsibility, go ahead, make my day, I'll create a FaceBook fan page. You've been warned!!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of twittering! Glad you joined us.

    HA HA! So glad to see you on Twitter. And I followed ya'll!

    The only thing I might recommend is that you also get a bit personal in your tweets rather than just posting links to things. Just a thought. Looking forward to checking everything out.

    And remember you don't have to follow everyone back that follows you!

    Thank you guys. And Angie, where's my darn BOZO icon? C'mon, be fair, I've earned it!

    Thanks for the suggestion Angie, good idea. I basically just tossed the links up there today to get started.

    Ok, on to following questions.

    I want my Twitter page to be all nature all the time. I can of course find and follow many other nature publishers on Twitter, which will enrich my feed with much variety.

    However, if I do this, then my own tweets will quickly be shoved out of view.

    This seems like a very basic question that every Twitter user with marketing goals must have faced, so I pose it now to you.

    And remember, if you don't comply with my demands, the threat of me starting a Facebook fan page is still hanging over your heads.

    Oh you must start a Facebook page! I prefer FB much more than Twitter.

    Ha! That's it, you asked for it, I warned you.

    You didn't answer my question, so now I'm going to create a FaceBook page too. I'm sorry it's come to this. :-)

    I look at it as a necessary evil.

    Still can't believe people actually like Twitter.

    Ok, due to my expert marketing skills, I now have two followers on Twitter, which surely must be some kind of record.

    Anyway, I just tweeted again. I don't see this new tweet on my followers Twitter pages. Does it take awhile? Or am I'm misunderstanding something?

    Thank you!

    It seems to me that when we visit the typical Twitter page, we find a series of different random conversations we don't understand taking place between people we know nothing about. No so inviting...

    But I guess Twitter is a very big place, and there could be other ways to do it. For now, I have in mind to use it kind of like a nature headlines service. If I can find other Tweeters with the same mission, perhaps something useful can be created?

    When you visit one of your followers pages you will not see what they see. You will only see their recent tweets.
