In Dutch there’s a saying, “Hij praat veel maar hij zegt noit wat!”
Translation = “He talks a lot, but never says anything!”
I’m in a quandary and don’t know what I should do about it.
On Twitter I’ve got a few followers who mention me by name daily, sometimes even multiple times a day, but they don’t tweet anything of substance. Oh, they might add on something akin to, “Have a nice day” but that’s about it.
What would you do?
After a while seeing these types of tweets in my timeline gets annoying and I used to @ mention them to please stop. If they ignored that request then I would simply block them and c’est la vie. Maybe that’s what I should do again; however, I’ve checked manually and I’ve used some analytic tools. These often are real people, not spam-bots. I like being the nice guy, but I also don’t want to be a sap.
(Oh, and I know how to recognize those spam-bots quickly.)
Have you seen this behavior too? I’m interested to know how you responded.
Hey, and I know those @ mentions do “something” for my Kred score and relevance and all, but meh … is it worth it? In the overall scheme of my Twitter interactions it’s not that bothersome, but c’mon.
