"Things You Hate To Happen To You" #8

This one lit­er­ally hap­pened about 5 min­utes ago.… and it crushed my soul. Haha, I’m just kid­ding, but seri­ously it’s another edi­tion of “Things You Hate To Hap­pen To You!”

#8 — The “Fake” Tweeters

I would just like to be very clear right now that this is NOT a post bash­ing Twit­ter or Face­book. Ok? Good.

For those of you Twit­ter users out there, Twit­ter is a WONDERFUL tool. You have to learn how to get your thought across in 140 char­ac­ters or less, which means that it becomes more rare to find some­one try­ing to post a profanity-laced rant on your news feed or try­ing to tell their life/sob story (are you tak­ing notes, Facebook?).

But in order to have a news feed, you have to have fol­low­ers! I fol­low quite a few things I like: ESPN, pro sports play­ers, friends, fam­ily, etc. But the great thing about it is that peo­ple can fol­low YOU! That’s right, peo­ple think YOU are impor­tant enough to be followed.

How­ever, some­times those peo­ple who fol­low you are FAKE. Or they might be part of an elite club known as “the SPAMMERS”. Yes, you know who they are. Those are the peo­ple who make up fake accounts with a pic­ture of a pretty lady and a bunch of ran­dom, use­less information.

The only rea­son I share this with you? In the last 5 min­utes, I had 7 new peo­ple fol­low me on Twit­ter and 6 of them were “SPAMMERS”, haha.

It’s just another one of those things that you hate to hap­pen to you, but you have no con­trol over it!

P.S. You can fol­low me on Twit­ter @z103matty
