What I Want from Twitter
Not a game of getting followers
For me, Twitter is not a game of getting followers. Having an audience for my work is good-- it’s why you’re reading this, after all-- but it is easy to demonstrate that getting a very high follower count is an anti-goal. Just check out the replies for anyone with over a million followers. It is a cesspool of the worst of the Internet. Twitter becomes unusable for most “famous” people. At the extremes, you will be tempted to compromise your ethics or self-respect, like Siraj Raval.
