Ten Twitterers I hate

I really need to make blogging a regular habit again. Everybody is tweeting these days, and like with everything that’s attained near fad status, it is bursting at the seams with annoying types. Since everybody is also doing top 10 Twitter lists, why not me?

1. The Over-tweeter: So I get that Twitter is some convoluted way to brag about what uninteresting restaurant you’re splitting lunch bill with 3 other wanna-be’s. Could you try and not tweet about it? Plus, am really not doing much on the internet on my own if I have to follow every supposedly interesting link you write.

2. The Hash-tag guru: #You #have #just #140 #characters #to #say #whatever #you #want #to #, #could #you #try #and #not #waste #them #all #on #lousy #hashtags #that #not #only #make #your #tweet #harder #to #read #, #it #also #wastes #my #time #?

3. The Hater: Listen, its not my fault that you really have a problem with the world.  I follow you because you might have something am interested in hearing, it doesn’t help me (or you!) if you’re always whining. The eternal pessimist also falls here. If life is so screwed, I hear ropes or Rat&Rat (remember it?) are easily obtainable. Get a shrink. Or a life. Or both.

4. The Retweeter: Don’t even get me started on this one. By the time I wake up, you have already retweeted half the entire Twitter timeline. You know, if I wanted to follow everyone, I would just do that. But I dont! So spare me all the little details of people am not interested in. Y’know, there’s a difference between a reply and a retweet. If somebody tweets and you want to reply to it, you could just go ahead and do that, without first shrinking his twt so u cn add ur cmnt @ z end.

5. The Jonas Brothers & Justin Bieber fans. And increasingly, the Lady Gaga fans. Who are these people? Can you get off Twitter and go to a concert or take a walk, or something! There are real important life moving things like earthquakes and wars. They need to trend too.

6. The Foursquare & Blip.fm users: So what if you just become the mayor of area with virtually no Foursquare users? Or you’re listening to Mike Rua then Coldplay? Get off my timeline!

7.The Facebook Twitterers: There’s a reason why Facebook & Twitter are 2 different social networking tools. I dont want your every little tweet, retweet and reply appearing on my Facebook feed just after I’ve seen it on Twitter. Leave it there.

8. The Chatters: If you want to chat, go on Direct Message, or get a chat client. I really don’t care whether Maina Kageni & Classic Breakfast is better than Capital in the Morning. Just don’t fill my bloody timeline.

9. The Cryptic Twitterer: ‘Just like I thought…’ So you think? Interesting, while you’re up there supposedly thinking, could you write something I can understand? On second thoughts, don’t bother.

10. The #FollowFriday Retweeters: WTH? How does this further the cause of information?

    Hehe Larry knowing you, I’m sure I can name all your 10 Tweeple you hate – BY NAME!

    • Name them by name? As opposed to by what?

  3. Carol said:

  4. ash said:

    I ask again. Who the hell is this Justin Bieber person?

  5. KW said:

    11. The eternal optimist.

  6. Hey Larry stop hating man….we are your friends. Actually, from my #newsinbrief you will find something to talk about.

    Its fun anyway reading a blog

    WTF kwani u think you’re the standard? I thot its simple logic man, if you dont like any of these annoying characters you just unfollow them! Simple as that. If anything you have 3 or 4 of these traits….like when you posted that your sis had an A…si ungetuambia stori za earthquake chile. Eish,You’re talking of switching to blogging coz everybody is on twitter. Celeb mzima with a free blogg…freebies! bure kabisa. Why dont you get larrymadowo.com etc & promote yourself as a better brand instead of hating Mr Wanna-be. You still gotta a long to go before you start hating. Tumeona mpaka Esther Arunga……infact i have gladly unfollowed you!

    • Hey, no beef man. This is a humorous post, and yes I fall in some of the categories. I am getting a website and thanks for the time you followed me, you have a choice to unfollow so I can’t say anything about that.

        Sounds like some sort of jilted over…needs to take a chill pill and get the rod out of their tush

  8. Wow! That’s one bitter ‘former follower’. Another behaviour i hate is tweeps who talk to themselves. It beats logic why someone would do that on a social networking platform.

    Okay, first off I must say this is the MOST unoriginal post I’ve read in a long time. If you’re going to copy paste, at least have the sense to acknowledge those who’ve written about the same topic before.

    You might say you ‘researched’ but still, acknowledge your sources.

    And it’s a little stupid to complain about things you obviously have control of.

  11. Larry Madowo, getting ahead of himself is he now…? Tweeting is a waste of time (i’ve come to learn the hard way).. infact am wasting time replying to this…… am out.

  12. matrixster said:

    Wacha….if you ain’t nothing to say on Twitter…don’t say it here😀

  13. Qwezi said:

  14. PKW said:

    There is only one rule to twitter.
    You make your own rules and are out to make your own experience. I actually enjoy all this diversity there is to twitter.
    In fact I think the only people I do not like much are those that update 4sq that is not useable by others i.e to discover places and such. The rest, keep those timelines popping.

    Let us enjoy diversity.

  16. Zax said:

    This is just too funny….I fall in about 3 of these…

  17. Gazeti said:

    Hahaha!! Well said author and ms macharia!! Larry is a freaking dush. Unfollow pap!! Hautoshi mboga!!

  18. couchy said:

  19. Warhia said:
