What if psychologists ruled the world? In real life?

Twitter stop nagging me

talking_with_your_followers_1600_wht_9116In the space of 15 minutes this morning I received the following e-mail from Twitter three times.

It’s been a while since we last saw you
Take 2 minutes to make Twitter work better for you.
We have one suggestion: follow more people. Yes, more. Following is how you build your home timeline. Building a great timeline is at the heart of making Twitter work. By building a timeline that reflects you and your interests, you’ll see how quickly Twitter becomes an invaluable part of your life.”

This particular e-mail was sent relating to a business tweets but I also get them relating to personal tweets. Less than 24 hours since I last tweeted. My last tweet on this particular account was late last night, 11 hours before they started sending these annoying reminders.

There is a second version I’ve also received along similar lines:

“Hi,  Take two minutes to get back on twitter. We’ve missed you on Twitter! So much is happening right now on Twitter, and building a great timeline is the way to really enjoy the service. Get to Twitter and start building a timeline that reflects you and your interests, you’ll see how quickly Twitter becomes an invaluable part of your life”.

Just how often do they expect me to tweet? I tweet when I have something to say and retweet when I see something I like.

I follow tweets I find interesting not automatically because they follow me and promise to increase my followers.

I refuse to be on twitter 24/7. I don’t want twitter to be an invaluable part of my life. It’s a useful and sometimes interesting tool but that’s all it is. It’s not my best friend. Get a life!

I’m feeling harassed!
