Twits on twitter

May 16, 2009

The difficulty with all the noise out in the market right now is how to filter through the sheer volume of noise.

Twitter especially has become an incredibly noisy place over the last two or three months.

And, to a degree, I am finding it less useful. I receive more alerts from people following me who I have zero interest in following. They add nothing to my daily life – providing useless information e.g. “Feeding the cat now and thinking what’s for dinner?” or else they are trying to entice me to sign up for their e-book/SEO promotion/internet evangelist/affiliate marketing scheme.

What else do these annoying Tweeters do? They have blocked profiles or no visual image of themselves. They aren’t interested in sharing. And they don’t engage. They have 20,000 followers and are following no one. They aren’t doing it for the engagement. They are just building up database.

And I’m not interested.

    Sorry Zouga for not being more religious with my posting. Life has been busy as I am relocating across the other side of the world. My point remains though that there are a huge number of people on Twitter who are missing the point of it – engagement – rather than micro monologues.
