I’ve been using twitter for a month now and thought it might be interesting to share my opinion so far.
It doesn’t make a big impact, but I didn’t expect that, after only one month and still not being as active as I want to. I’ve been linking to my posts, but most of my views are still coming from wordpress (and that’s cool!). It’s harder to get recognition than for example on instagram. I almost get no likes at all on twitter and after one month I have 22 followers.
I don’t know whether there is a secret to it 😀 But I am experimenting.
I do follow 43 people at the moment – a mix of authors, pro-wrestlers, wrestling fans and book bloggers. None of my friends or family members use twitter (as far as I know).
I noticed that I don’t like it, when people ‘take over’ my feed, that means tweeting non-stop for hours or re-tweeting everything they come across. I deleted a couple of people who do that.
You also have the option of muting the people you actually follow. That means their tweets just don’t show up in your feed, but you can go to their pages and access the tweets there. I do that with only one account as they post pretty cool pics but they are also posting a lot I am not interested in.
I also can’t stand people talking about American politics too much. That’s why I unfollowed a couple celebrities^^
If you post a link to youtube, it doesn’t give you a preview, but only the link. Maybe that’s just me not figuring it out? Or it really doesn’t work^^ I kinda would like to actually see what’s shown instead of just having the link there..
It CAN be annoying – especially when I see all of those promoted tweets and have to mute them. I’d rather not see them at all.
The good thing is though, that you CAN decide what you want to see and what you don’t want to see. There’s nothing you can’t delete/mute/turn off.
I enjoy reading tweets by fellow wrestling fans who are into the same promotions and wrestlers I am, as I don’t know any in real life, apart from Mr. DZ.
My highlights so far?
Brian McClellan retweeted my review of ‘The Autumn Republic’, which made me really happy!
Flip Gordon (a pro-wrestler) shared one of my tweets about him in New Japan’s ‘Best of the Super Juniors’ tournament. Yay!
