Stop the Spam

I have been active on twitter for a couple of months. I like interacting with other sellers, friends, etc. 

However, I have noticed that you have some people who will spam the hell out of you with their ads, from their Etsy shops, to their family members businesses, websites, etc. Don't get me wrong I have sent out tweets talking about items that I just listed to my shop or recent blog posts (lack there of), but that is only when I just listed the items or made the post, I don't twitter about it all day, everyday.

Some people take twittering their business to the extreme, with every single tweet being about their recently listed items, recently renewed items, ideas about how to sell more items, etc.  If you go to their homepage, they reply to no one, because they are twittering about their business. They appear to have no interest in other people, which defeats the purpose of Twitter.

You need to switch it up a bit, respond to people, send out random info about yourself, have fun with it. Be a human, not a business twittering robot.

Rant over.

Sorry you keep getting spammed. You were next on my list of blog followers to buy from, by the way, but unfortunately I could not get to you fast enough. Sorry about that.
