Default What Kind Of Tweets Do You Hate To See From Others?

I know there are a majority of tweets that people tweet all the time that might get frustrating to see and read constantly. To the extent that you might begin to hate to see what people tweet over and over again. So, what kind of tweets do you hate or dislike to see or read all the time on your twitter?

The tweets that I see being tweeted repeatedly on my twitter is "I'm stuck in traffic" and I'm beginning to hate it. I mean, do I really care? I personally wouldn't find myself tweeting from a car. Oh and another one is the #FF tag. Every Friday you get to see your twitter account filled up of #FF names. And I think "ok... spam anybody?" Are people taking Twitter too seriously these days?

I'd rather see "I'm stuck in traffic" than "Buy my stuff" - at least it shows them as human and not bots.

i was just about to say that!

i would love to see real tweets all day rather than constant spam.

somedays i feel if i see another "top 10 social media income....","income autopilot...", or " internet income myths...." tweets i'll explode.

whats weird for me to think is that people still fall for that stuff?

i can almost all ways predict exactly how that marketer is going to market me.....

link to vague tips, popup to squeeze page for "top 10....." info, 100's of future emails containing affiliate links.

I agree on both counts, I hate the stuck in traffic, but like it more than the generic and obvious affiliate link spam. I think that twitter was a good idea initially, but it's made people think that complete strangers actually care about when they eat lunch etc. Frankly I don't care, not even a little bit.

Default Discovered The Power Of Twitter

I think some people don't even know how to use it...Twitter can be a great marketing tool when used in-conjunction with attraction marketing...Stick to posting valuable information and you should be safe...But to answer your question I say the buy this tweets are the most annoying ones.

Twitter itself has no meaning. It is just about blah blah blah and nowadays, people are no longer taking it as seriously. They are posting something that has no meaning itself and this is the reason why it is being filled with garbage.

I seriously dislike Twitter tweeters that are only retweeting other tweets.

Sometimes a RT post is appropriate, but some folks have nothing but "RT" starting all of their posts. C'mon folks, if you have nothing new to share then give it a rest. You don't HAVE to tweet every 60 seconds 24/7.

Bill I thought that was the entire purpose of tweeting was to tweet and re tweet. re tweeting is what boosts your tweets rank, maybe I am wrong, but aren't those the followers you want to have as long as they aren't re tweeting the same message over and over again?

I was just wondering because that was my theory on tweeting and I aimed to get those people as my followers, especially when in my niche.
