artists who primarily rely on twitter: i’m BEGGING you to stop falling for the blue checkmark/twitter blue grift. “i need it to boost my place in the algorithm” except you don’t even know if it really does that? god knows elon just says whatever and people keep fucking believing him even though it NEVER works out that way. look at what twitter is now. you really think it’s gonna get better for artists NOW? it wasn’t even good for artists while it was a functioning website! how is that $8 supposed to save your follower count when twitter is still bleeding users across the board? the only other people falling for the grift are elon simps, alt-right chuds, and other grifters looking for easy marks, and THOSE are the people who are actually going to benefit from the blue checks. if you dont fall under those categories you’re losing way more than you could possibly gain by buying that checkmark
you don’t have to leave twitter, at this point it’s kinda hard for a lot of people to do that, and that’s fine, but PLEASE don’t fucking pay for it.
“Well twitter is where I get all my interaction” twitter SUCKS for interaction. Nothing stays relevant for more than a few days. The amount of twitter interaction sucks, has sucked, and always will suck.
The only thing it had going for it was more people were there and at the rate I’m seeing numbers go, its not gonna have that for long.
Twitter is the “Cows are about 300 times more likely to kill you than coyotes.” website. I’m not saying leave twtter entirely, but. Fan out a bit.
