The Twitter Experiment Is Over

12

April 20, 2010 by esarsea

For that past several months we maintained a BS BLOG Twitter account, and would “Tweet” every time we added a new post. I think we tried it for about 6 or 7 months.

After all that time, we only had 3 “Followers” – 2 spam accounts and a ABBA Tribute Band that showed up after Randy came out of the ABBA closet. As of today I deactivated our Twitter account and removed the Twitter widget from our sidebar. Seemed a waste of time and energy.

We do have a few followers in the form of subscribers though. We currently have 2 email blog subscribers, and 8 comment subscribers. A modest following for sure, but it’s fun to know we have a few.

Maybe it’s time for Brother Bill to stub his toe — or slam his fingers in the car door — and then sit down and fire up an angry and controversial rant or two. He’s been playing awfully nice lately, and our stats have dropped off as a result :-)

    I have NEVER gone twittering. The name alone sounds strange in that a “twit” is a pejorative used to cast folks in an unfavorable light. They should have called it tweeting as tweet correctly describes what is taking place.

  2. Stu says:

    Actually, that’s what they are called. The short messages you send using your Twitter account are called “Tweets.” I guess you could say that people who tweet are twits though :-)

    I started thinking about this today…… what would be the problem with leaving the twitter thingy engaged?

  4. Stu says:

    I guess it would not have been a problem, it was just a hassle to log onto Twitter and generate another message every time we made a new post here. It didn’t seem to accomplish anything so I just canned it, rather than neglect it and not keep it updated…

  5. Bill says:

    Definitely not down with the Twitter thing. So, if you tweet to a female, is it a “Twat?”

    I was just over at Politifact. They’ve once again bestowed “Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire” status to Palin for saying the Democrats are poised to launch the biggest tax increase in US history!!!

    Reading her screed is like stubbing my toe, slamming my hand in the door, dropping the hood of mama’s car on my head and slipping in the shower…all at once.

    I’ll think of something.

        And how the hell did we go from Twitter to Taxes? LMAO

        It’s what happens when they have no record that any of them want to speak of and surely wish to deflect attention away from. They then, for any chance of survival, have to remind us of the evil Sarah Palin or the evil George Bush or any of the other favorites on the hate-parade at every opportunity so we all can find something “supposedly” more despicable than the “fundamental transformation” that has been bestowed upon this country. And Bill just gets sooooo excited when they’re burning Palin in the public arena of opinion. Brace yourself, we can surely expect to see allot more of these drive-by, ambush posts in the coming three months.

        I’m counting on it! ;-)

        ……and yeah Bill, that post prolly would have made a whole lot more sense had you put it in the “Hey Obama!…. What was that Promise you made” thread where we discussed that very issue…… IMHO! ;-)
