Posts Tagged ‘following’

Another Twitter topic… Today, I decided to stop following someone. I do like her updates but the problem is.. I can’t visit her site from where she “tweets”. I have tried it and somehow its not available in here. For the longest time I followed her and never bother to let her know. I really wanted to check out her site because I’m curious and interested, that’s why I followed her in the first place.

*Breaking RT routine: for the 1st TIME… I’m hearing “Return To Innocence” by Enigma!!! I can not believe I’m listening it… wish I knew who requested it!!!

Anyway back in Twitter thing, – before, I only have 2.. just 2 that I follow.. and one is her…. She tweets everyday many times and I’m thinking since I can’t check her site…. its really useless to be following her.  I just frustrate myself every time I see her tweets and… the other one I followed…. well… he barely use his Twitter and updates but I’m interested in him never the less.. The other day he tweets and I didn’t even realized it happened until I visit his Twitter page.

How can I possibly know if he makes a tweet (its like a once in a lifetime that it happen and I didn’t know that) if the other one keeps on tweeting? I’d say I’ll go with the silent type.. let him make a miracle by tweeting something… ehehe 😀

I do feel bad when I found out she unfollowed me as well, over her thousands of followers, she still knew what I did… I feel like I’m guilty of something.. So now I still got 2 who follows me and I’m wondering when will these guys change their minds.. 😀 (I don’t mind if I don’t have anyone who follows me or I have few – I don’t use Twitter just to count followers.  I personally use it as my shout box.  I’m thankful to those who still follow me… as a matter of fact.. they kinda stand out and easily be noticed by me, since I only have 2 and if I feel like checking them… I can easily do that.. so, there’s no need for me to actually follow them, they put themselves in the spot already. To be able to be noticed among thousands, go for less.. 😉

If others who has many to follow, how can one be able to track or read what others have to say? Do people really care who they follow or just another quantity thing? I have sites that I like to keep track of, but I choose to bookmark it instead, since there are sites that is not applicable in mobile, so why bother..

I Don't Get It

Twitter…. I use to think it spelled Tweeter, since its from the term “tweet”. Anyway.. I don’t exactly know when it began..since I’m just freakin’ new… come to think of it, I’m confuse to what its purpose and I have questions about it.

Most celebrities & DJ’s kept on saying to follow them and some use the term “stalk” them. As far as I know, they do prefer a private life away from the crowd and besides, what is the point of following them in Twitter if I can’t even get close to them or even know them better?? Even in my local places,  I’m sure they wont allow themselves to “get together and hang with a fan” , though sometimes, I’m interested to know what they actually posts and what have they been doing. But I can easily bookmark it and no need to follow.

Lately, I’ve learn that if you are a follower of someone or something, every posts that they make automatically you get updates. Its convenient, IF you are following a blogger who informs readers.  I never really thought of following anyone or anything, I just shout it out in my Twitter.

I once listen to a conversation in radio about Twitter, sometimes it has its own cons. Some people are pressure to make their lives more meaningful in order for them to “tweet it out” just to say that they are interesting… or if you read about others tweets, you start seeing yourself like you are nothing in society…

…well, its a piece crap.. trying to show people what you only wanted them to think and to avoid being hated or saying unpleasant things, they will have to act nice and keep accepting whatever.  I don’t see any point in following anyone….though I am really tempted. I am thinking about following my DJ crush, but its really so obvious in that way and besides, he is not really tweeting type kinda guy. He hardly posts anything. According to his few tweets, he likes the rain and photography but he never post any pics that he takes and share it. At least some people have no doubts to share some pics.. like Marf. That guy has no boundaries.. even little things, he post and tweets about it.

Anyway…let’s go back to the topic at hand. I still have few questions that keeps me wondering..

-Do others sees the posts  whom I  follow?
– How will I know if someone checked my profile, I once  discover that, but I forgot already what button to click..
-What is Listed means?
-Do others see what I’m seeing in my profile? I hope they wont bother to read my ridiculous tweets. Alot are crazy stuff and humiliating tweets.

Twitter for me is just my personal shout box to the world. My inner thoughts from the moment I post it. Its the imperfection and simplicity of me. It only helps me to connect all my blogs into one and just a way of expressing freely not knowing who reads and who don’t. So, I’m not a fan of Tweeter..  😉

Does this make any sense?
