8 Things That Make An Annoying Twitter Feed
An annoying Twitter feed can be discouraging to view and to participate in.
Do you really get annoyed with tweets in your stream? There are days I do and wonder – what are people thinking?
Furthermore, do people think before they tweet? Or is it bots doing all their tweeting for them?
Or are some folks just using automation 100% and not really there on the network to see what their tweets really look like?Do you really get annoyed with tweets in your stream? There are days I do and wonder - what are people thinking? #Twitterfeed Click To Tweet
8 Annoyances on Twitter
Being Tagged on Twitter for NO Reason. This is my biggest pet peeve on Twitter. It’s usually a newbie blogger or someone trying to sell you something without knowing you. They have not generated a friendship with you and begin to tag you on posts. That’s a big NO-NO!
Twitter Feed Facebook Posts – Why do some people on Twitter only tweet out their Facebook posts? Isn’t that the most annoying Twitter feed? (or is it just me?)
You can’t see their Facebook post links unless you are logged into Facebook most of the time (unless their posts are set to public.)
It’s a waste of time and a reason to unfollow someone or mute them out. If we wanted to be on Facebook we would be there and not on Twitter, right?They have not generated a friendship with you and begin to tag you on posts. That's a big NO-NO! #TwitterTips Click To Tweet
Instagram Posts with No Photos – Yes, this is another big NO-NO on the Twitter feed. I have a video for you to learn how to do it with IFTTT.
And the Others
Horoscopes for Today – Do you really want to read horoscopes in your Twitter feed? These are another automated tweet or FB feed that gets into our Twitter stream. Another No-No annoyance!
Seeing Favorited Tweets – This is a newer feature Twitter has launched. This is where users are seeing tweets that have been favorited by accounts they follow in their own timelines. What do you think of this Twitter feature?
Posts With Only @ – Have you seen these too? That’s all that’s in the posts. They are like mentions but with no words, rhyme, or reason. What is the purpose of these types of tweets other than to mention someone? It would be okay if it was TY, YW, or a short question with them. It’s a very lazy tweet.
Flooded Tweets – Ever see a new peep tweet out the same thing multi times within a short period of time? It is usually self-promotion and can get annoying on your feed. However, this is a great time to use the mute button.
Maximum Censorship – Why does Twitter censor everything we post? The other day I was writing Fakebook about Facebook and they took down my tweet before I finished typing it!
Twitter Feed – Which is Your Favorite?
There are several ways you can view your Twitter feed today, which way do you prefer?
- Likes. (formally favorites.)
- Latest Tweets.
- Trending Topics – For You.
- Spaces on Twitter.
Lists to Help You
Using Twitter lists helps you to be less annoyed! There are folks on Twitter who really know how to tweet and the lists can be a breath of fresh air.
Therefore, I rely on my lists most of the time when going on Twitter. Furthermore, lists really narrow down my focus on being there and save me time.
