E Twitter e, e ʻoluʻolu e hoʻokū i ka huhū ma hope

Twitter I laloI kēlā me kēia lā ke nānā nei wau i kaʻu mau mea ma hope Twitter. ʻO ka manaʻo o kēlā me kēia lālā e ukali iaʻu. Ua kūkulu kino wau i kaʻu mea e ukali nei, ma ka loaʻa ʻana o ke aloha me hoʻokahi mea ukali i ka manawa like.

ʻAʻole hou. ʻAno ʻakaʻaka kēia ... hāliu auto-follow tides ke hoʻokō ʻia nei i kēlā me kēia minuke. Hiki iaʻu ke hele ma Twitter i kēia lā a loaʻa i hoʻokahi mau haneli scammers e hoʻāla iā ʻoe ma luna o 10,000 mau ukali i loko o kekahi mau lā. Pono ke koʻikoʻi ʻo Twitter ma lalo o ke kaupaona koʻikoʻi o kēia mau helu.

ʻAʻole maopopo iaʻu ka mea e koi ai i kekahi e hoʻopunipuni i nā helu e loaʻa i nā maka maka ʻole. He aha ke ʻano o ka ego e pono ai e iho i kēlā ala? ʻAʻole maopopo iaʻu akā hoʻonāukiuki maoli ia iaʻu. ʻO ka manaʻo o kaʻu mau ukali he 5,000 i kekahi mea. I kēia manawa ua ʻoi aku wau ma mua o 6,000 ... akā ʻo ka hapa nui o nā mea hou hou he mau phonies ukali auto.

Pono e holo i waho kēia mau ʻōnaehana ukali iā Twitter, no laila e maʻalahi ke ʻike a pale iā lākou. Pono ʻo Twitter e hana i kēia manawa - ʻaʻole wale e kāpae iā ia iho i nā phony i hoʻonui ʻia ma hope o ka helu ʻana, akā e hoʻomāmā i ke kaumaha e hana ai kēia mau ukali āpau e hopena i ka hana a Twitter no nā mea i koe o mākou e mahalo nei i kā lākou lawelawe.

E ʻoluʻolu Twitter ... hana i kekahi mea e pili ana i ia! Ke hōʻino nei lākou i kāu noi.

    I use to auto follow when I first started and then realized the types of people I was approving were not who I wanted to follow. Now I pick and choose one by one. I’m now following you as I checked and had not been already.

      I’ve actually put a request in to Twitter to remove my auto-follow setting but I have yet to hear back… I think they’re pretty busy right now! Hopefully they add an option so I can simply turn it off myself. Now I’m regretting it Michael!

      I’m checking each one and unfollowing when I see they’re simply a spammer or an auto-following phony (they skyrocket from a few followers to thousands in a week).

      Mahalo!

    Life is too short to be cluttered up with people that don’t share the same interests as you do… I feel that contacts should be like a “Good” bottle of Wine you must pick and choose and determine what best for your taste!

    OMG. Thank you for writing this. I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter for this very reason. Just yesterday, I disabled notifications because I was simply wasting too much time processing new (empty) followers day after day after day (and I don’t even have near the high number of followers as some).

    I was thinking this was a change for you. I remember you saying you auto-followed anyone that followed you and that you were interested in each and every one of your followers. Wondering what spurred the change overall in your opinion on this strategy? Was it just the spammers?
