    I have had a Twitter account for awhile. People follow it. I follow them. But I find it pretty useless as far as promoting things goes.

    If I post something on Facebook, LinkedIn or just on a message board, I will get a few click-throughs, but Twitter seems to be social media masturbation.

    Am I using it wrong?

    I over-followed sports stuff. It overwhelms anything else that might catch my attention.

    Yeah, we make fun of Facebook's algorithm, but at least the site attempts to balance what we see. I think Twitter has a bunch of posting addicts and not much else.

    I remember a few years ago the founders of the site were on THSS, saying they'd never sell it, even though it was worth billions. I kept thinking, WHY NOT?!

    Move on. Do something better.

    I am on there allot.I have close to 1500 followers. i use it to have fun,send tweets to celebrities,bug a few people etc. My issue is most people are advertising and promoting things on Twitter,so once they follow me they try to get me to buy a product or go listen to their music etc.

    I had to delete a few posters because I logged in one morning and my feed was nothing but a photo of what looked like Drake licking a girl's asshole.

    I`ve seen that one. The worst is constant tweeting of some girl popping a pimple on her neck.I have had fun with celebs. Some celebs pay people to answer tweets so you never can be sure who it is .

    It's good for news updates especially if you play fantasy sports and what not. Follow some weather people on there as well.
