We have many followers. My family members have 1.1k followers in 1 month on FB and so on. I don’t. I probably have 23.
On Twitter, its just activism. Still it does count. I have been very busy with some move related stuff.
I am about to drop the kinds of followers who: dont:
- ask me about my day
- come to my defense, subtly or not
- talk TO me
How we break up says so much. I have the kind of friends who will pick me up at the airport at odd hours if needed, will substitute for me, will defend me. I do the same. for them. On social media you’d expect that people would ask about your day. Here and on twitter, I see that of my 400+ followers no one faves my tweets or asks me about my day. I can be an activist by myself. I am going to be volunteering with 2 NPOs.
I was asked to sign some petitions. My work said to do that from a diff computer. So I could not. Instead, I tweeted 10 times as much. I polled my other friends and found out that 90% found that very reasonable. The aim of a petition is to help undo an injustice. I accomplished more by publicizing the cause and petition site.
Amongst Aniplals, I tweet for animals. These tweeps dont, even once a week read my tweets, say hello, or read my blog.
If you wanted to work for shelters and some people ill-treated you, you would find another way to help animals.
I am more productive when I am with friends. Real ones. LOYAL, KIND PALS!
Thank you for the support!
