I’ve recently figured out this “Twitter” thing. I have it all set up now where the posts on this blog go to my Twitter “feed”, which in turn posts automatically to my Facebook “status.” You’ll know this, of course, if you got here through either one of those.
Anyway, it’s cool getting the little messages in my GMail that say, “So-and-so is following you on Twitter.”
Often, the main reason people “follow” you is to get you to, respectively “follow” them.
One of the first messages I got after setting up my Twitter Account was that So-and-so was followign me, so I clicked on it, and it said, “This account has been disabled due to violation of Twitter rules” or whatever.
The other first person I got was some kind of porn site. I forget if I blocked them as a follower, or they got dumped like the other one.
Then legitimate pro-life and Catholic twitterers (?) started to follow my feed. Even Relevant Radio is following me, making me hope I’ll get a mention on Catholic radio sometime.
But I’ve noticed a few more followers of a more “scandalous” nature. One is a fellow whose profile says he likes to turn straight men gay. Obviously, I’m not goign to be doing a reciprocal “follow.” However, it’s nice that such individuals are selecting to “follow” this feed. If “horny hotties” and people “looking for a good time” and people selling personal lubricants want to subscribe to my feed, I’m all for it. I just hope they read what they’re subscribing to.
I ain’t discriminating against anyone who wants to read 🙂 So, if you happen to look at my Twitter pro-file, and raise your eyebrows at some of the names on my “followers” list, pray with them for me.
