Well that will sound like bitching, but I'm getting a little bit pissed of twitter, i've been there since 2011 (but never used any hashtag until these two last years, call me a boomer i didn't knew you had to use hashtags, yeah, i know you have to seo's the html out of a website with keywords and titles, and articles that repeat these keywords for maximum impact, but i was just dumb and carefree about twitter, that's how fucking clueless and dumb i was.) And i usually have a little bit of interaction in public tweets, but i never had anyone contacting me directly from his own will, and it was a first...
Some dude trying to sell me retweets to profit of his supposedly "reach" ( you know, accounts with around 8K or 10K+ followers) but what got me pissed the most was the fact he didn't even say "hello", just that, i know it sound stupid and old fashionned, the tweet itself felt emotionless enough like an advertisement, or feeling like i would be desperate enough to give money for retweets, but just not even bothering acting like a human talking to another, just the basics, you know, "hello" so i know you are a fellow human being and you may respect other people enough to just say hello.
Let's talk about being retweeted by these kind of accounts anyway, am i going to spend a single dime on a comics i'm just spending 12 to 14 hours a day drawing, and sharing for free, and not making any money on ? Okay. No. I've never done that, in my entire life i've never went in debt on something that just isn't profitable, that's just common sense / basic economics and a principle that allways got my money saved, not in the position of being in need or in the streets.
But let's talk about the prospect and the thought of doing it if you were tempted to do that, in this case, that account retweets other webcomics author, but the reach is kinda miserable judging from the interaction, and the likes on each retweets, not only twitter has it's lots of fake / bot accounts too, but you have to keep in mind that there might even be real but ghosts accounts too in the mix, people that just aren't spending that much time on twitter, or have just deserted twitter for a long time but are often kept in the subscription numbers of these accounts.
That was my 2 cents about this and excuse me for this topic.
