Should I follow @DinosaurDracula? Twitter thinks I should. And his name is good. So why not?
That folks, is why I suck at Twitter. I have been a member since 2007 and never really mastered it. I am certain that I have the site hooked up to it so I just look like an enormous spammer since all I post is links to my new articles. I use Tweetdeck (which I love, btw) and try to talk to people sometimes but I honestly think I just started out wrong.
It’s also sort of sad that since my name is the same as a National Park and a university in Canada I get a lot more accidental mentions than real ones. Now that I think about it, I should have made my name “home”. Then I would get mentioned all the time when people tweet that they are “relaxing @home”. I should start over but I like the fact that I have had the account so long. Not than longevity has done me any good. I used to have more than 3000 followers but it is steadily dropping and it is probably high time I try to fix it. Yeah. That’s what I will do. And here’s how!
I have no frigging idea how….
Seriously I don’t know what to do to make people on Twitter like me. I reply to people sometimes. I make a couple jokes. I try to get into conversations. Nothing works. It is like everyone else on Twitter has some sort of app that allows them to smell me. And I don’t want to make everyone feel like I am trying too hard. Which should be easy since I am lazy and don’t want to try too hard. But I am at a loss about what to do. Maybe Twitter just isn’t for me. Maybe I don’t follow enough “internet models”. Your help would be appreciated. No joke. It really would. Otherwise I am just gonna hire some Pakistani sex robots to take the account over for me. And none of you want that. Or do you?
