I’ve been immersed in the Twitter culture for quite some time, and I really enjoy the brief exchanges there with friends and colleagues.
I think it is a dynamic environment that is part conversation and part networking tool. There are no rules, but I’d say there are some unwritten rules, like don’t be overtly promotional.
Recently, Jim Kukral launched a “game” called Twitter Me This, which I thought was against the spirit of Twitter, but figured maybe I was being overprotective of the vibe at Twitter.
I noticed some Tweets from Sam Harrelson that criticized Twitter Me This, and then Jim posted a video response.
Sam responded in kind with video on Cost Per News (link removed, because it no longer works). And I figured I’d share my thoughts on the Kurkalization of Twitter.
Long story short – Twitter asks, “What are you doing?,” not “How can you push the limits me annoying marketing schemes and experiments”?
Then again, I don’t think Jim was ever really one of us over there in Twitter. Not so long ago, he said he was quitting Twitter.
I think you’re a great guy, Jim, but I liked you better when you were a Twitter quitter.
