Yesterday, i’ve decided to retire my 4 years old twitter account and start a new one from scratch. It took me a couple of months to decide whether to continue a new one or just keep my already established twitter account and enjoy what i’ve been doing for the past 4 years. But, then again. I do have enough reasons to start a new one. And it has nothing to do with any of my employer or organizations that i am involved with.
I’ve been using Twitter, the wrong way. So we need to move on.
I started twitter before i entered college. I do tweet and retweet a LOT and i even almost reached 85,000 tweets in just 4 years. Those were the good days where i can freely express who i am, and say i wanted to say. It’s almost similar to a real time diary. And just came to realize at one point that, i’ve been using twitter the wrong way.
It’s all different now. Lately i’ve been doing technical talks and workshops, and i believe most of my followers came from those developer events. For me, twitter is a great place to share and get information from different people. And i somewhat believe that my followers followed me because of what i do now. Clearly, i just wanted to get things straight and deliver content that is relevant to everyone.
It’s still the same me, minus the clutter of the past. We all grow up and goes to the point that we mature and move on. 🙂
