    I just got followed by a man who describes himself as:

    "Social Entrepreneur, Futurist, Creator of Wealth Dynamics, Talent Dynamics, Founder of Entrepreneurs (sic.) Institute"

    He sounds like a TEDx talk made flesh. Trying really hard to see what he sees in me. My last tweet was a photo of a local news article about someone pooing through letter boxes.

    Edit: fun fact - there are four threads here titled simply 'twitter'. Except one has a '?' after it.

    loads of people like that fishing for followers with speculative follows. they're trying to justify conference fees with follower counts i guess. get to 100,000 and youre a 'social networking guru' tawdry low level scam but it appeals to spivs.

    Yeah, I regularly get a follow from some motivational gimp with tens of thousands of followers only to have him disappear a few days or weeks later.

    Online self promotion is a pox. A disease of the mind and spirit. These people are lepers trying to escape their colonies.

    Why cant people just use twitter like its intended; existential wallowing in the pit of despair, snarkiness and mindless trivia?

    One of the reasons I haven't published any writing or mixes for the last few years - the idea of promoting it physically sickens me. Such a tawdry, repulsive ritual.

    Actually I think some proper trolling might be much more rewarding. What should I ask this guy? Whether he can upcycle my headspace efficiency, something like that? Oh Mister Guru, what's more important in cradle-to-grave project management: being dynamic, or being holistic?

    The best thing is just to ignore who is following you completely and bang stuff out there. (Except if someone you know or like follows you, obvs)

    All this "oh that post about xyz just lost me 6 followers" stuff is just as desperate as shady entrepreneurs begging for attention.

    The main thing about promotion is just not to do very much that needs promoting. That way everything will be in balance.

    Ahahaha, check out this dickhead:

    Many people think that there are hundreds of routes to wealth. With Wealth Dynamics, you'll see that there are actually only eight paths to wealth and that one of those paths is the correct one for you.
    The EIGHTFOLD PATH to TRANSCENDENTAL MEGABUCKS!!! This is 24-ct assholistic nonsense. Trolling has commenced. Watch this space.
