Tweet this you twat.

So, I’ve had a twitter account for a while.  I use it to “promote” my website and advertise new posts and stuff after reading all these articles on how you can utilize twitter to reach a broader audience.  Unfortunately, I think that’s a big pile of bullshit.  I do get a few hits whenever I post a new review, but other than that, I don’t see much return from it.  I also don’t use it enough for more people to follow me.  I’m not the type of person to update what I had for lunch or what I saw, because frankly, it’s not that interesting and I’m not that interesting.  I’m almost 32 years old and I realize I’m never going to be an internet star (not that I’d want that anyhow).

I’ve been following people but at first I was following people because they followed me first.   Now I realize that’s really not what you should do, since you get to read a lot of stuff that you probably don’t care about.  I don’t see how someone could follow more than about 30 people.  I check twitter about 4 or 5 times a day and if I have more people to read than that they get lost in the shuffle.  I actually removed someone a couple weeks ago and they asked me why I stopped following them.  BECAUSE I’M SICK OF HEARING HOW AWESOME YOU ARE, that’s why.

Maybe I’m an old douche, but I really don’t see the point of it.  I’ve been on the fence for a while on if I just want to stop checking or posting all together.  At least with my little gig here I know only 10 people read it and this is for me, I’m not obsessing over how cool I am and how I love lobster claws attached to people’s testicles or that I saw Kevin Costner riding a dolphin at Sea World or whatever fucking bullshit people write about.

If I checked it 50x a day I might find it more useful, or if I knew how the fuck to find people who talk about shit I’m interested in or whatever, but for now it seems like it’s just an exercise in narcissism.
