Catching the Qwitters

1 Apr

Your eyes meet across a crowded social media space and your heart beats a bit faster. Your hands fly to the keyboard and you hit that Follow button with all the hope and promise you felt as a teenager.

Life is sweet. You read her links, you laugh at her funny little brainfarts, you send her silly little thank you’s for retweets and #FFs…

Then one day, the email is waiting for you on the mantle when you log-on to your laptop: she has Unfollowed you.

You had downloaded Qwitter months ago to be alerted when a follower left you – but you never dreamed for a moment it would he HER.

You check her profile: she is now following 8 more people than she was yesterday. She dumped you for someone else!

The emotional sequence  is predictable: surprise, confusion, sadness, anger, RAGE.

But you are not alone my friend. No. There is Qwitter Therapy to help you get your mojo back and find new avenues of Twitter companionship.

Soon the pain of abandonment will fade and you’ll be your old self out there in Twitterland again, the twinkle once again back in your eye, the hope back in your heart.

    I used Quitter for a while. Then I realized that knowing who unfollowed was not worth the frustration. I also did some digging and discovered that Twitter is broken unfollows people on it’s own. To many false positives with Quitter I found. Better not to know.

    They’ve just relaunched it JP, with cap in hand. They admit they screwed up Round 1. I have to admit, it was fun for about 5 minutes. But I’ve decided to take the high road. 😉
