Twitter is introducing a new policy at the end of this week that users with more than one account on Twitter won’t be permitted to tweet the same thing across their different platforms. The reason someone on Twitter might think of the same tweet on more than one account is to leave more impressions, in order to make out like a bandit with increased lead generation.
I only have one account—https://twitter.com/findingenvirons–but I do have a strategy in place where I automate trending webpages in order to keep the account continually tweeting without requiring too much of my time to get the tweets on Twitter.
Now that this policy change at Twitter is fast approaching, I am going to change my strategy, so that I shall be safely within the “safety zone” of the change in policy. I will keep automating tweets, but on fewer days overall.
Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is the word identical, and I think of this change in Twitter policy that’s very close to being here, and how it doesn’t permit identical tweets to be posted on several different Twitter accounts, which I never thought much about doing at all, anyway. I feel the change could be good. For me, Twitter is a hobby, and I use it for the same kind of reasons that other people who are likeminded to me use it similarly (read possibly identically :)).
I am looking forward to getting a glimpse of how the new policy impacts the “noise” on Twitter, the tweets of all the users competing to be heard. I don’t spend a lot of time on social media, but Twitter is my favorite of the social media sites I am familiar with.
· Today’s my birthday, and I wanted to do something on the blog to have a touch of festivity, so when I got home after a bit I looked at this week’s Photo Challenge. Krista Stevens is the author of this week’s challenge–hi, krista!–and she put on the cover page of the challenge a question there and then about what hobby the visitor would rather be doing.
My computer to me is like a Battletech, out of the game of Battletech that I played some as a teenager pitting one Battletech against another. However, I’m not interested in turning my particle projection cannon on you, only giving you words afield.
· I eventually settled on a photo of my statuette of st. Patrick, standing in front of a shelf of tumbled books. Would that I could drive snakes! Rather than be prepared to meet the weekly photo challenge on WordPress, I could be curing sorrows.
· I am looking forward to facebook today, to see if any of my friends on facebook write me birthday wishes. There could be a few posts of that kind.
· I am also excited about a rumored change starting the twenty-third of March, where Twitter is beginning the order that only one out of every three days can be utilized by automated tweets. It means that being the unofficial social media manager of our nonprofit is getting easier–I won’t have to say so much!
Despite that sentiment, I do enjoy writing a brief exposition and publishing it along with a photo for the blog. Why else would I have such a tool? Some bloggers are very good and even though I am dedicated to helping operate a non-profit there is sometimes a component of mentorship (on the Internet, it is always a good practice to help make comfortable a newbie).
Blogging is a popular pastime that actually makes a name for fortunate individuals. I too contribute a blog, which often looks at I am doing in my field of work, but explores other endeavors such as looking at how popular cinema is changing in this day and age.
