Regular readers of this blog will know that for more than a year from the beginning of 2022 onwards, I noted the addition of another 10,000 Twitter followers to my account every few weeks or so.
It has to be said that things have now slowed down considerably. So, for example, although Sunday's thread, which was reproduced here, got more than 700,000 views on Twitter (which remains something about which I continue to be astonished, when it happens), only 200 or so new followers signed up to my account, which now has about 247,000 subscribers.
What is more, that account does now see quite regular declines in the number of people following it. Some of that I can explain as the aftermath of the comments I sometimes make about Labour, but some would also appear to be due to people leaving Twitter, or X, or whatever else Elon Musk now wishes to call it.
Precisely because of the level of impact that Twitter provides me with, I will not be giving up using that platform. I can see no sense to that when I can reach more people using it than I can in any other way, but I am curious to know how readers here have reacted to the developments at Twitter over the last year, and so this is my question of the day:
How has your Twitter use changed in the last year?
- I do not use Twitter (47%, 114 Votes)
- I remain a casual observer on Twitter but not an active participator (20%, 49 Votes)
- I have quit Twitter (13%, 31 Votes)
- My Twitter use has declined (12%, 30 Votes)
- I use Twitter as much as ever (6%, 15 Votes)
- Twitter is fundamental to my use of social media (2%, 4 Votes)
- What is Twitter? (0%, 1 Votes)
Total Voters: 244
