Please do not get me wrong. I love Twitter and all the wonderful benefits it offers its members. My rant is NOT against Twitter at all.
My Twitter rant is concerning some of the members of Twitter and how they annoy myself and in my opinion abuse the Twitter system. If you are not familiar with Twitter a ‘Tweep’ is a member of Twitter who Tweets (posts messages on the system). Twitter is fun and does have a language of its own.
Twitter Tweep Rant #1
“Bio Christian, Mother, Grandmother, Gardener, Photographer and Freelance Writer, love nature. Published on Associated Content!”
This is my biography on Twitter. It states very clearly what my religious beliefs are it is listed the very first thing. Why do people bother following me (agree to receive my posts) only to hurl insults or profanities at me when I post something Christian related. I am a firm believer we all have a right to our own beliefs but if you are offended by my Christian faith –
DO NOT FOLLOW ME!
Twitter Tweep Rant #2
Very annoying to me are the Twitter Tweeps who follow you expecting you to follow them back but have locked their Twitter posts. What this means is before I follow some one I like to know what they tweet (post) if your account is private there is no way I am going to be able to see what kind of topics you have or will be posting on Twitter. I understand some people like their privacy but Twitter is a social network please post information on your bio that will give me a clue or respond to a few of my posts to let me know where your head is at least a bit other wise –
DO NOT EXPECT ME TO FOLLOW BACK!
Twitter Tweep Rant #3
#FollowFriday – Follow Friday is a great way to introduce your followers to one another. What I hate is people who RT (retweet) other people’s Follow Fridays and do not even follow those people themselves. Most people I have seen do this are merely trying to ‘trick’ others into following them. It does not work with me, it is a good indication you are too lazy to create your own Follow Friday list, it annoys me and I will more than likely –
NOT FOLLOW YOU
Twitter Tweep Rant #4
This Tweep rant is for those we not so lovingly refer to as ‘the porn queens’. Yes, they are even on Twitter, those ladies doing all they can to get people to look at their scanty or not at all clothed bodies. Ok folks first of all I am 100% straight so have no interest at all in seeing these photos. For these people I first post a few bible scriptures just for you and –
I WILL THEN BLOCK YOU (if your profile picture is obscene I will report it to Twitter)
Twitter Tweep Rant #5
Again, Twitter is a social network, socializing takes at least two people. Tweeps who post day after day (often several times a day) and do not communicate with other tweeps defeats the whole purpose of Twitter, fills my screen with a bunch of posts but makes me wonder if you ever look at the screen yourself, particularly if you are using one of the systems that automatically post for you. Feel free to follow me all you want but I –
WILL NOT BE FOLLOWING YOU
Ok, that is my Twitter Tweep rant and I do feel better. I hope each one of these types of Twitter users read this and learn at least a little bit about the down fall of their Twitter habits. Please feel free to share this with all of your Twitter followers and if you do not fall into any of the above groups look me up on Twitter I may enjoy following you @byfaithonly
