100,000 NOT OUT!

By David Vance On August 8th, 2019

Hi everyone! Hope this finds you well. Those with a long memory may recall me flirting with Social Media back in 2009. There was a new-ish thing called Twitter and I joined it and have stuck with it ever since as it IS an effective way to communicate! It’s not as personal as here and the short form character means thoughts have to be very very concise.

Today, I have exceeded 100,000+ followers, a bit of a landmark. Whilst some will be bots, some haters, the vast majority seem to be genuinely engaged in what I say. (Tweet) It’s been a bumpy road to this scale of social media footprint – some horrible moments, some soaring moments, some good laughs too.

Anyone who knows me will attest to my love of technology. Video may have killed the Radio Star, but social media has simply enhanced, not replaced, longer-form communication. My job is trying to balance the competing pressures it creates, but just as I am thankful to all who follow me on Twitter, I am also thankful to those who stick with my first love, A Tangled Web.

I am making an effort to post more frequently here!

  5. Thanks folks, I fully recognise it is a very different form of media but it is what it is and I guess if it’s good enough for President Trump then…. 🙂
