I finally quit Twitter.
I know that people rag on Facebook all the time for being a hub of political malcontents and weirdos, but it’s got nothing on Twitter.
What makes it worse is that so many people there are flat out mean. On Facebook I can post a picture of my wife and I and people say nice things. On Twitter, someone will pop up and say something negative about my wife’s look, or my physique. It is disappointing, especially since I just joined it to promote my business and it is useless for that as well. I spoke to an acquaintance recently and she has been dealing with a digital marketing corporation and getting some pretty good results. She was telling me that my problem was using social media like a normal person would, instead of approaching it like a marketing business. One of the benefits of outsourcing all of your social media activity to a digital marketing corporation is that they don’t have that personal link that leads to online fights. If someone says something mean on one of my posts I will get angry and fire back, but the digital marketing corporation isn’t interested, they just delete the comment and move on with business. My acquaintance commanded me to keep on using social media for my personal life, but to hand over the business side of it to a digital marketing corporation. She also gave me contact info for the digital marketing rep she has been working with, so I am hoping for similar results. Wish me luck!
