So I was on Twitter, when Teddy Freddy (pseudonymous name, yes) says, "I need tweets; I'm just going to post random numbers to get them!" These were his following tweets:
The list goes on (I think). While he did apologize later, he was spamming. If he was doing this in-game, he could get banned for spamming. And besides, no one needs "Tweets".
In fact, that leads to a whole other discussion. I hate it when people say they need "tweets" or even the occasional "I need posts." No, you don't NEED posts or tweets or status updates or anything! You WANT more of these things, but you do not NEED these things. People who have been blogging, who have been on twitter, and who have been on FaceBook have gained their updates. Tremendous amounts of tweets and posts and status updates. They've earned them by posting interesting stuff and for being there simply longer than you may have been. Those updates were meaningful, not spam.
How would you feel if me and every other blogger said, "Huh, I kinda need some posts to catch up to Friendly ... today's post will be me posting random digits to catch up.
It's not cool.
Anyway, if you didn't know that spamming was wrong, let me give you your lesson before you get yourself into a sticky situation. Spamming is wrong. It annoys people to no ends. Especially people like me. It can in fact get you banned in most games including Wizard101 (or at least get you muted). Many people will automatically unfollow you if you spam on Twitter or Blogger. Many people will unfriend you if you spam on Facebook. It's bad. Don't do it.
Sorry to be on such a bad note today. I just thought people should know not to spam. Basically, you should only be involved in the Wizarding Social Network if you want to have fun, not to say that you have more followers or updates or tweets or posts or whatever it may be.
Again, sorry for such a negative Nancy today. Hope your day is amazing!
