So many people who I follow on twitter seem to be constantly on message. What I mean by that is that they constantly post about a singular subject. It may be IP Networking. It may be cycling. It may be the environment. They are on message. They have a lot of followers.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time (which only a very few have) you’ll know that I kind of wander from topic to topic. I’m almost never on message. I don’t have a lot to say about the industry that I work in. I don’t have a lot to say about the apocalyptic nature of our relationship to the climate. I don’t have a lot to say about cycling.
I’ve got a little to say about each of these topics, and many more.
Recently, I noticed a number of my “followers” on twitter abandoned me. I’m sure it’s because I wasn’t tweeting enough about what they originally followed me for. Perhaps I pissed someone off with a few to many tweets about politics, the climate, or occupy wall street.
I don’t know.
But I do know this, I’m way more than one-dimensional. And so are most of the people out there in the Internets. I wish more people would take the risk of being “off message” once in a while. They’d been more interesting.
