Dragi Twitter, molim te zaustavi sljedeće ludilo

Twitter doljeSvakog dana obraćam pažnju na svoje sljedeće cvrkut. Svaki član koji me prati nekada je nešto značio. Sljedbenike sam izgradio organski stječući naklonost jednog po jednog sljedbenika.

Ne više. Sad je to smiješno ... auto-slijed plime i oseke izvršavaju se iz minute u minutu. Danas bih mogao da idem na Twitter i pronađem par stotina prevaranata koji će vam za nekoliko dana dovesti preko 10,000 sljedbenika. Twitter se mora naprezati pod izuzetnom težinom ovih brojeva.

Ne znam šta primorava nekoga da vara brojeve da bi dobio prazne očne jabučice. Kakav ego trebate imati da biste išli tim putem? Nisam sigurna, ali stvarno me iritira. Mojih 5,000 sljedbenika je značilo nešto. Sada imam više od 6,000 ... ali mnogi od novih sljedbenika su lažni autopratioci.

Ovi sistemi automatskog praćenja moraju raditi izvan Twitter-a, pa bi ih trebalo biti lako prepoznati i blokirati. Twitter bi to trebao učiniti odmah - ne samo da bi se riješio lažnog napuhavanja sljedećih brojanja, već i da bi umanjio napor koji svi ovi sljedbenici moraju učiniti da bi utjecali na Twitter-ove performanse za sve nas koji cijenimo njihovu uslugu.

Molim vas Twitter ... učinite nešto po tom pitanju! Uništavaju vašu prijavu.

    I use to auto follow when I first started and then realized the types of people I was approving were not who I wanted to follow. Now I pick and choose one by one. I’m now following you as I checked and had not been already.

      I’ve actually put a request in to Twitter to remove my auto-follow setting but I have yet to hear back… I think they’re pretty busy right now! Hopefully they add an option so I can simply turn it off myself. Now I’m regretting it Michael!

      I’m checking each one and unfollowing when I see they’re simply a spammer or an auto-following phony (they skyrocket from a few followers to thousands in a week).

      Hvala!

    Life is too short to be cluttered up with people that don’t share the same interests as you do… I feel that contacts should be like a “Good” bottle of Wine you must pick and choose and determine what best for your taste!

    OMG. Thank you for writing this. I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter for this very reason. Just yesterday, I disabled notifications because I was simply wasting too much time processing new (empty) followers day after day after day (and I don’t even have near the high number of followers as some).

    I was thinking this was a change for you. I remember you saying you auto-followed anyone that followed you and that you were interested in each and every one of your followers. Wondering what spurred the change overall in your opinion on this strategy? Was it just the spammers?
