Top Five Tweets I Hate - Part Two

Good Morning On Twitter - The Anti-Social MediaI’m on vacation this week. This post was originally published April 19, 2010.

So, last Monday I had a lot of fun with the Top Five Tweets I Hate to See, so I figured, let’s beat a dead horse until it’s glue.  This is my list of common tweets I saw this past week and what drove me nuts:

  1. Good Morning - Sometimes it’s just those two words. Sometimes it’s “Good morning and have a great amazing awesome day!”  Rarely it’s “Good Morning.  Today is going to suck.”  Either way, it’s morning and we remember you are here even if you didn’t tweet good morning.  So stop it.
  2. Coffee - Another frequent morning tweet.  We’re all zombies before 9 am and we have caffeine.  But being a zombie doesn’t mean we all tweet the same thing in the same tone, as if we’re craving the delicious flesh of the living.
  3. Foursquare without any Information - I see a lot of “I’m at CVS.” or “I’m at Wal-Mart.” tweets.  Are you asking for the entire internet to try and find you?  Is there something we need to know about why you are at these places?  I want relevant information or entertainment, not random locations.
  4. iPhone Rumors - Most people on Twitter have some obsession with gadgets and gizmos, and the iPhone is king of them all.  However, we need to accept that Apple will let us know about it’s products are ready.  Blasting every rumor or hypothesis will drive people to think you are a lunatic with nothing else to do.
  5. Anything with Justin Bieber - The boy has a lock on being a trending topic.  Don’t give him any more publicity, and please don’t give him any more musical credibility.

What tweets are you all hating this week?

    I went on a ruthless mass unfollow for anyone who just tweeted “jokes” or lame “quotes” … also those people who tweet the news headlines and flood the stream.
    Super long tweets that use Twitlonger makes me mad. Everyone else manages in 140 characs - why can’t you?

    Worst Tweets?

    The Twircle jerk - When a group gets overly excited about a social media conference or chat session or hashtag and endlessly RT each other.

    The Tweach Around - The tweets thanking everybody who @ replies or mentions you.

    Does this count: When you follow someone and you get an automatic reply back (especially the ones that then ask that you follow them on Facebook or buy their book or whatever). Why would I want to do any of those things? And why did I follow you in the first place? Those folks are definitely unfollowed ASAP.

    Good Morning, just enjoying a coffee while sitting at the kitchen table… wondering… does an iPhone have a JB app?

    My apologies… I’m guilty with #3 but now that I know, I will make an effort to add something not too boring to my check ins or I won’t bother checking in lol

    LOL, and aside from that, typing in Justin Beiber’s name in a tweet post will spark an outcry from his army of tween fangirls. I do worry about posting locations on twitter or any social media platforms, I don’t really see the point of it, and frankly, it might be an invitation for shady people to stake out my otherwise empty home.
