Followers (Ello) = Followers (Twitter), for me

by Volker Weber

I have been on Twitter for almost nine years, never followed more than a hundred accounts and always kept my tweets under one hundred. For a while my followers have been hovering around 3000. There are spam accounts coming and going, but other than that, it's the same bunch of people. I think about 750 of those are still active, the rest is dead wood.

Two years ago Ello launched and I was an early user. It was briefly hyped as a Facebook killer. Which it never was nor intended to be. It is a tiny island, compared to the other networks. And I liked it there. The interesting milestone today was that I had the exact same number of followers there, and the engagement is higher.

I am not dropping Twitter like I dropped Facebook. It's a place where I get a lot of news. I just found it interesting how quickly Ello has grown for me. And you have to see it. Large, beautiful photos.

Only if you're capable of taking large, beautiful photos - which you are, and I am not, sadly.

One thing I have been wondering about (but so far felt too stupid to ask): Is it possible to not show photos full-width? My browser window generally uses the full size of my 15-inch screen, which in turn prevents me from enjoying photos on Ello. They are just too large (even though they are indeed beautifully high-res).

Or is it the norm to be browsing with a smaller window and I’m doing it wrong?

Tap a photo and it shrinks to the window size. Use grid view for a quick overview.

@Nick, every child is an artist. Rediscover your inner child.

Ha, that was easier than expected. Good that you explain difficult concepts in simple ways. ;)

Not difficult, but why make it complicated? ;-)

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
