Is there any point to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram?  If I closed all of them, would anyone notice?

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Twitter.  On one hand, I hate the limited word count and how so many people use it as just a means of promoting their own stuff.  On the other hand, I love the fact that I can promote this blog on my Twitter feed to the 80 people who actually follow me.

Since my random moments of wanting to drop Twitter, I have realized that there are actually a few Twitter feeds I would miss I dropped Twitter (again).

The other day, I had to unfriend someone on Facebook.  For most people that happens all the time.

A few of my tweets from the past week.

First up are a couple of tweets I sent as a general observation/complaint about Twitter and its suggestions.

I was trying to create a hashtag trend with #XMasGoneBad.  This one I think is the best of the three I posted.

I saw #lonelydarkseid originally posted by Gail Simone.  This was my entry into the list.

Why I Quit Twitter (Again)

It was something I had been considering for a while.  Should I stay with Twitter, or should I drop it?  There were some aspects of Twitter I liked, but still a lot more that I did not like.  In the end, after watching another person’s Twitter issues, I decided that I had enough and closed my account.

Again.

Good Bye Twitter

Really Twitter???

Recently, I had been following @ComicBookGrrl on Twitter.  The tweets, written by very talented author Blake Northcott, have been witty and fun to read.  Basically, they have been exactly what we should be reading on Twitter.  At least, I had been following her until this weekend when Twitter decided to suspend her account.  According to Blake, she was told that she was following too many people.

So, I can’t seem to understand why this has happened.  I don’t seem to remember Twitter ever mentioning an upper limit of how many people you can follow on Twitter.  I also don’t seem to understand why her account was suspended when every other “follower” I pick up seems to be either a spammer or a pornbot.  Case in point, my latest follower is @CurrentClinica, who seems to be nothing more than a pretty face and a long list of tweets listing various medical books.  This person is allowed to continue tweeting.

Frankly, if this can happen to one person who did not really do anything wrong, this can happen to anyone  for any reason.  It’s scary to even think about it.

I do recommend that anyone with Twitter should follow her once she gets back up.  In the meantime, many of her fans are working to convince Twitter to reinstate her by tweeting #BringBackComicBookGrrl and #BringBackBlake as a show of support for her.
