Annoying Commercial Opportunists not really getting Twitter or Linked

with one comment

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:
www.twitter.com/Solutionman
www.twitter.com/SolutionPeople
www.twitter.com/KnowBrainerTips

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.

Innovative?  Um…
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.

  1. This same jerk is spamming me. I was previously signed up to one of his LinkedIn groups, and he harvested members email addresses and won’t stop sending me his BS.
