I'm not good at Twittering

Postby Spot On J2K » Sat Jul 18, 2015 11:20 am

i'm still new to the twitter world and i'm trying to get as many people interested in my game in progress a possible but it's a seemingly impossible mountain to climb just to get noticed amongst all the other indie developer tweets and such. and just like everything else, it seems like it's more about who you know than the actual stuff you put out. all in all it kind of seems like a big whoring-yourself-out game where everyone is screaming "look at me!' in desperate attempts to get followed/retweeted :3some:

it is not really my cup of tea

you have to get into contact with some gaming blogs and give interviews/send them news on your game/stuff like that.

then you'll have something to tweet out and then you can retweet the buzz they put out

yeah at this point just keep doing what you are doing but the real "marketing" can start depending on what you want to do, interviews or what not with whoever may be interested. or even news/screenshots being sent around.

Twitter sucks major, just the whole concept of it. If there was ever a doubt that society has a bunch of attention whores in it, look no further 'cause Twitter made it worse when it was already bad.

I'm just glad I found out about lists so I can divide up people I'm following into easier to digest sections.

Getting on Twitter and instantly being bombarded by a hundred new Tweets in a minute has to be some kind of record for most people screaming "look at me" at once.

all you need to do is hashtag something popular and whoever is running that hashtag will retweet it

Piggybacking on someone else's hashtag? How low can the internet go? Have they no shame?

Also, where is my ferret smilie that you promised me? I need it now more than ever, Dave. :cry:

I think people should be made fun of for even naming something Twitter, and tweeting about things. However, I guess it has its uses. Some people can stalk stars even easier now than before. :-*

What asshole hashtags? I'm kind of out of the loop about it. However, I know that some pizza company ad went horribly wrong or something cause they used #whyistayed as their hashtag and it's actually connected to a domestic abuse thing. Whoops!

Where's my ferret? I would like it so I can have a reminder of Smoky. Only you can make the ferret smilie a reality, Dave.

you should look at Donald Trump's twitter and do exactly what he is doing. here's a gem from his feed today:


"I just realized that if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than ten minutes straight, you develop a massive headache. She has zero chance!"

I would be so privileged to be able to read something that only someone with his level of intelligence could ever possess. I think that the reason he got a headache is he put his wig on too tight, with too much hair spray. I also don't know who that girl is he's talking about.
