We are in an age of information sharing, transparency and engagement. You select to involve yourself with social media, with the goal of sharing information, engaging and having people share with you, right. Ok so your Tweets are BLOCKED, Private or whatever the hell they are? Why bother?
I understand it as much as I am possibly capable of if Twitter is used for personal usage. Umm…ok, I’m lying I really don’t but lets pretend I do just so I won’t get hate mail and hate comments. LOL. I have only run across this a few times and I always wonder why a person would even bother to use Twitter under these circumstances. I really REALLY don’t understand it if business people chose to go this route.
As I am very transparent in business and personal practices I would never use a service that I felt as if I couldn’t utilize in a transparent way. With Facebook there are options in place to allow certain degrees of privacy according to who is following. Under those circumstances I guess I understand to a certain degree, because information that you’d like to share with family and friends may differ from what you would want to share with business colleagues. So maybe this is the same sort of thing?
This blog post is a way for me to gain an understanding of the need to block Tweets? More of a way to find out why? Are you curious too? Well lets open the door of dialogue.
In the meantime, take a look at the Funny Twitter Infographic below and think about what kind of Twitter user you are.
