To Unfollow or not to Unfollow.
That is the question I find myself asking more and more lately, as notices of new twitter direct messages arrive at my inbox. Rather than an opportunity to connect with an old friend, or learn something about a potential new friend, almost all of these direct messages are something along the lines of …
“Thanks for following me on Twitter! Check out www.Iwanttosellyousomethingoverpricedthatyouprobablydontneedanyway.com”
You know what’s really ironic? When I get a message that someone is following me, and/or before I decide to follow someone else on Twitter; one of the first things I do is see if they have a website listed in their profile, and go check it out. Why spam me with a direct message asking me to look at something that I’ve probably already seen anyway?
Since I’m (theoretically) a “marketer” myself, I always have to chuckle when I find myself lamenting the fact that some sort of online site has been “discovered” by lazy marketers, who have developed lazy marketer tools, and are rapidly in the process of making the site less enjoyable and useful for non-lazy marketers.
Oh well, such is life.
lol, that’s my rant for today. I hope you’re all having a FuN weekend.
