(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.
