Giving people access to DM me and now expanding their content to UNLIMITED? Twitter, please rethink this egregious error. You may just kill the DM for good.
Twitter shares the top spot in social media along with Facebook. And if you know how to use it, Twitter can provide you wondrous benefits. These benefits are often…
Poor Michael and Melissa Zeng. They have been trying to follow me with at least 100 accounts over the last year or so. I'm sure they are real nice marketers,…
Look for quality people to follow. And when quality people follow you, follow them back. And please, please, please BLOCK and REPORT the spam accounts.
To be fair, I could care less about what these two former rockstars are tweeting about now. They've become clowns and shills of their former selves.
So here's my question. if Guy Kawasaki was struck by lightning and taken to heaven, would his 1.4m strong Twitter account keep tweeting? I mean, I can't see why it wouldn't. Very little of the content is actually curated by Guy anyway. So at this point, Guy's Twitter account is more of a bot account than a human account.
And to take it to one more extreme, to illuminate the fallacy of these two gentlemen's delusion, let's imagine that they unleash the full-robo on all of their social channels. If we begin telling marketers and individuals that blasting 5 or 10 identical posts and tweets and updates to ALL of their social channels is okay, we're going to see a dramatic drop in the value of social media for all of us. So why stop at Twitter Guy and Chris? What's holding you back?
There are plenty of egregious practices being used in social media. But when the leaders and journalists behave badly, it's as if they are showing us the way. Do Guy and Chris believe we should all queue up robo-tweets weeks in advance?
So why after all his ranting, using dirty words to describe me, accusing me of online stalking and reporting me to the Facebook authorities does Mr. Omar Gallaga feel it is then worthwhile to continue sniping at me? I'm like an extracted tooth or something. It's painful for a while, but you can't help but keep sticking your tongue in the place where the missing tooth was. So he has nothing better to do, no interesting pieces to write about Mommy Blogger or the Taco Bell dog passing? Perhaps if the effect is more like poking a fork in an electrical wall outlet he will shut-er-down for good. We'll see I guess.
If you agree, start asking these guys, "Why all the robo-tweets, Chris?" Or "Hey Guy, I used to like your content but now your team of tweeters is just sending out random crap hour after hour. Why are you doing that?"
