My weird Twitter usage

I am a very atypical Twitter user. Let me explain my patterns:

If you keep a short tail, nobody is going to step on it.

How do you deal with likes from people you follow, since Twitter is increasing the visibility of those tweets in the timeline?

René Fischer, 2018-05-04

Not sure I understand your question.

Volker Weber, 2018-05-04

I use quite similar patterns. The only differences are: I don't use a photo of mine in a profile, but an iconized version of a photo I had done 10 years ago (So like the Queen I always look the same). I gave up on blocking promoted tweets. No matter how many I blocked, still every 5th to 10th tweet is a promoted one. I use a different client now.

I quite enjoy blocking those accounts. ;-)

Volker Weber, 2018-05-04

Well, to each his own fun. ;-)

*cough* blocked *cough* :)

I still don't get your "ahistorical" approach, but that's fine. But let me ask you one question: Would you be willing to pay for an ad-free Twitter, and what premium features could you imagine for such a service (sorry, that was actually two questions)?

Thomas Cloer, 2018-05-05

Yes, I would pay a small fee for an ad-free Twitter. I would want the ability to edit tweets after posting.

A concise list of reasons why I don't follow your Twitter account. ;)
