Original Post

I just saw this.
www.huffingtonpost.com/geri-spieler/drowning-in-twitter-world_b_192...

some quotes:
"It's a nice service if you stay away from the name-collectors and spammers (and whatever you do, avoid the Etsy sellers - they spam like crazy!!)"
And I have to agree, I have added tomes of etsy sellers, and usually end up removing them of muting them.
Maybe we should lay off the twitter, instead of spam. I send about 1 tweet related to business a week, but tweet daily on random crap (which is the point of twitter).

yeah I've noticed that too... I try to twitter about random things more than "I just sold this" or "I just relisted this" cause I find it really boring to read those messages myself...

I will say, there are some tweeters on etsy that are just hilarious.

I agree. But twitter is so new that it is hard to still fully grasp the concept, if you know what I mean :}
