My Twitter Account Shows Zero Followers

Published by at 9:35 am under social media

Well, the social media ride was fun while it lasted. I’ve been measuring my popularity in Twitter followers for over a year. Now the chickens (or fail whales) come home to roost.

In the words of an esteemed colleague I knew back in grade two:

Nobody likes me.
Everybody hates me.
I’m going to go eat worms.

UPDATE at 11:55 am: My numbers are back! My sense of self is returning…

    So where’s your Twitter feed? I searched on it and only found BT links.

    Apparently there was a Twitter crash due to a bug that they had to fix.

    No really!

    I was just thinking that isn’t even remotely possible, as I follow you on Twitter.

    Meanwhile, I seem to have stalled just short of 50 followers, as spammers continue to come and go. Whatever the trick is to Twitter, I don’t know what it is.

    So, don’t go to Twitter. That’s easy enough. Some of the world’s biggest shitheads have rabid followers on all the social networking sites,it doesn’t mean they have real popularity,or anything intelligent to say.
