i just wanted to bump this thread because.... the old vote/buy spam issue has resurfaced.
my best friend (who loves 30 and goes to a lot of shows with me) unfollowed the band and jared twitter accounts yesterday (she had already unfollowed tomo during one of his twitter attacks.) and currently only follows shannon because hes 'not annoying yet'. we were discussing how its annoying when the feed is filled with "vote/buy" spam tweets and all the accounts retweeting each other. like, we came to the conclusion that is one account HAS to spam, it should be the 30 account, and jared & tomos accounts should not retweet everything the 30 account tweets. cause most people that follow jared or tomo are also following 30.
then we were talking about how jareds 'notes from the outernet' blog is the only interesting thing he has going right now (when it comes to social media stuff) and we were like "THATS the type of stuff he should tweet!" (or tweet the links to it like he does now, but it all gets lost in the spam) cause its actually interesting
. its worth reading. the tweets, when i see their avatars, i scroll past all of it cause its all the same shit. its got bad again and its causing them to lose followers. maybe not enough for anyone to notice, but still, these are quality fans that have been around for a long time and support & go to shows & buy merch on their own cause they WANT to not cause its tweets a zillion times, and now because of the spam, the account(s) lost one (maybe more who knows) quality fan who now could miss out on some good info all cause of the annoying spam coming in from almost every account.
shannons twitter account is nice. he barely tweets, but when he does, its interesting, pics, whatever and not annoying. i actually like seeing him pop up in my feed cause you never know what hes gonna say/show, but like i said, i scroll right by the jared, tomo, 30, and hive accounts because its all the same. retweeting each other about voting here and buying this. yes you need to promote things, understandable. but it should be appointed to one specific account and not retweeted by everyone and their mother. one of the main complaints was how the 'personal accounts' weren't very personal. then it improved, and now its back to square one. well tomo is still pretty personal, but his tweets can just get annoying sometimes, but that's probably just me. cause some of the stuff he retweets, make me want to strangle the original tweeters.
i mean, am i nuts? is it just me being temperamental or have others noticed it i sgoing back to the annoying way it was? (man i hope its not just me, cause then im gonna feel very nit-picky!)and this thread has been dead for a bit, so i'm also gonna post this in the twitter thread.
