Twitter spam

Had a brief dabble with Twitter again over the last few days.

Still not sure I really get it but will trying sticking with it for a bit longer this time.

However, I did start to think twice once I got hit by Twitter spam. I happened to mention on Twitter that I had done the last tax return for my late father’s estate and so had finally wrapped up the probate stuff. Within an hour I had a UK “probate advisory company” following me until I blocked them. I suppose to some people that might be helpful active targeted marketing. To me it was ugly unwanted opportunistic intrusion. Though impressively efficient of them to spot the opportunity so quickly.

Maybe I just don’t have to right temperament for the modern conduct-your-social-life-in-public style.
