I just browsed into LinkedIn today and saw this question on my homepage;
“What advice do you have for twitterers just getting started?”
As it happens I’ve a bit of advice to give out, having been on twitter for a while now. But when I clicked on the question, instead of something substantial, it was just a blurb for this guy. So it was a totally bogus and misleading question. Another irritating factor is that the content of the question is this
Click to Check Out My 3 New Innovative Twitters:
Well I did check ‘em out;
- Solutionman is following 1,412 streams, has 1,174 followers – and precisely 3 updates.
- SolutionPeople is following only 672 streams, has 496 followers – and exactly 3 updates too. Two of which are the same as those in “Solutionman”.
- KnowBrainerTips is more of the same.
And now this guy’s set up a LinkedIn group – on twittering! With precisely 9 updates. 3 of which are the same update spammed to 3 different accounts.
KnowBrainer? This guy should focus on putting interesting things on Twitter instead of trying to use Twitter as a spamming tool. But that’d be a no-brainer. You get people interested in your stream and they start checking out your other stuff.
And if he follows me, I’ll bloody block him.
