"Machine Gun Twittering:" Probably Not Cool

"Machine Gun Twittering"
Damien at the Speed of Life (June 22, 2010)

"Twitter is both a fun way to network and also a promotion tool for my online writing. In the past 2-3 months I have really applied myself to seeing what it does. I learned how to mass add followers and after that learned I wasn't really compatible with most of them so … mass adding is not cool. Something else is not cool either, which is what I'm getting to in this post..."

"...The other night I shared with my wife how annoying it is when someone I follow 'tweets' in rapid succession. I had some people on my list I dropped because their successive tweets were annoying....."

It's not a long post - and that "machine gun Twittering" could be annoying. Which concerns me, since I do it myself. So, as Damien Riley's wife pointed out, does he.

Maybe you do, too. Like I said, it's a short read - and could be a useful one. I've reminded myself to watch how fast I Tweet tomorrow. We'll see if I listened.
A tip of the hat to rileycentral, on Twitter, for the heads-up on his post.

PS One of your recent 'word verification' checks made me think of pasta. :P
