(aside) following on twitter: the truth & the fancy

STILL MORE: twitter: (aside) following on twitter: the truth & the fancy 16 minutes ago from web


thanks for the invitation, Marcelo! but now that I know how you operate … I know you will find my interesting tweets, whether I follow you or not! *lol*


P.S. take care!:) D.


Marcello: fair enough!


P.S. tried to find you on twitter; still don’t know how
many people you follow — nothing came up under your name or the name of the website (strange for someone who wants to reach a whole lot of people…) D.

Hi, Marcelo


How many people do you follow on twitter and do I understand correctly that you don't really read each and all of their twits, you just scan for "interesting stuff," which appears to be mostly leads for people that might be interested in your services and you do this through the search function spending 45 minutes/day at it.

As you describe it, a much larger amount of your time seems to be spent on what appears to be largely self-promotion that you also hope would be interesting to people (*could* be ... although if you do it largely to promote yourself at least some people might regard it as spam).


P.S. I truly don't get it how could people truthfully follow literally thousands of people on twitter (some of them, *tens* of thousands) without doing little else.

P.P.S. Also, I can't see how you could possibly form a meaningful relationship on Twitter (way too restraining) -- it seems to me you'd have to take it to email and/or phone at some point and eventually meet in person, unless all you mean by "relationship" is getting people to try your services.

(craigslist ownership) has Craig Newmark sold all his shares in craigslist?

MORE: @zennie62 if you truly believe [Craig Newmark] "is no longer the owner" of craigslist, you are little more than his lousy stenographer -bye! about 23 hours ago from web

was meant as a reply to this

STILL MORE: @elretrovisor right! they haven't figured out how to pocket 80% of the profits and hide that from people (see the ebay v. craigslist suit) 27 minutes ago from web in reply to elretrovisor

EVEN MORE: @zennie62 Zennie, it's kind of late in the game to continue to be duped by Craig... ~Delia ( about 7 hours ago from web in reply to zennie62

MORE: Twitter: (craigslist ownership) has Craig Newmark sold all his craigslist shares or is this just his regular ambiguousBS? ~Delia about 8 hours ago from web

... or is this just his regular ambiguous BS?

"is no longer the owner" (2nd paragraph, end of 2nd to last sentence)

looks like Zennie 62 was very likely duped into thinking that by Craig's seemingly intentional ambiguity and failure to clarify -- I would have expected people to wisen up after the ebay v. craigslist suit exposed plenty of Craig Newmark's secrets but looks like nothing much has changed...


P.S. very likely, Craig is just not the *sole* owner (as in not *the* owner) of craigslist (as, on paper, he has not been in a very long time) but he continues to hold the most shares as the ebay v. craigslist law suit made fairly clear. D.
