Twitter Is…

Noisy. Boring. Pointless. Repetitive. Too Fast. Too Slow. Full Of Spammers. Stupid. Redundant. A distraction. Overhyped.

All of the above?

Take your pick. These are all relative terms – one man’s signal, and so on. But that doesn’t really matter, as you have the power. Truth? Twitter isn’t anything – except what you make it.

If you don’t like what you’re seeing in your Twitter stream, change it. Unfollow. Then unfollow again. Connect with people that fit your needs and wants. And if that doesn’t work out, move on.

Lather, rinse, repeat – until you’re satisfied. You, you, you. Forget what everybody else thinks Twitter should be – what do you think? What do you want?

Almost without fail, people who complain that Twitter is pointless, boring or noisy, are following too many pointless, boring or noisy users. It’s frustrating because it’s something that’s so easy to fix.

And if you don’t do anything about it then you can’t blame anybody but yourself, as it’s never Twitter’s fault or responsibility – it’s yours, and always will be.
