I believe most my followers are bots.  I don't know how to get real people to follow me :(.
 
2014-05-07 05:43:06 PM  
This is why I don't Twit.

I got into Twitter briefly, and started following some actors I liked, people that I thought were cool and actual down to earth good people.

Then the tweets came, what they were doing for breakfast, what they thought about the weather, and how cute their pets were acting.

I started unfollowing them and focused on news sites and related. Which spammed constant updates.

Between the stupidity of the short messages and the information overload, Twitter is just a waste of time.

Better yet, don't use Twitter because it's motherfarking stupid, and social media will be the downfall of the human race.

Reese's Pieces.  Leave a trail.

I heard the Mossad are upgrading Tatsuma to bot-technology. Expect this thread to be a test of his bot-trolling technology.

There are real humans on Twitter? Let's back up here for a second.

I've been going through various accounts.

It says Ellen Page is 57% bot.

I had roughly the same experience. Except, I quit the day of the George Zimmerman verdict because everyone freaked the fark out and became racist towards each other.

/miss the tweets back and forth with Grey Delisle. But that's about it.

They didn't become racist. They already were. Same on fark with the homophobes and their apologists in recent threads. At least here you can highlight them.

I got 18%. Which I hope is 18% bot. But they don't explain it so I don't know if it means 18% human.
 
2014-05-08 07:23:10 AM  
Anybody stupid enough to follow my Twitter account is a bot, ipso facto. All the rest of them are giant corporations astro-turfing their little hearts out.

I dunno, I like twitter. I follow a lot of sports stuff and athletes. A lot of them are pretty active and willing to interact with fans. I think it's pretty cool. YMMV

/and some are hilarious
