It’s not you, it’s me.
Or is it you, Twitter?
You see, I can’t help but feel that Twitter is like a new boyfriend in your life – you’re excited to get to know him, flirt for a while and learn new things about him which keeps you coming back for more.
But once you’ve reached that point, that comfort zone if you will, you’ve learned all there is to know and suddenly the thrill is gone.
And then you go back to Facebook to check in.
Has my love affair with Twitter wavered?
I hate to say it and it pains me immensely but similar feelings are starting to surface with Pinterest. Shhhh! Bite my tongue you say?
Yes… I’m really trying to deny it but it’s starting to feel like Pinterest is just another boyfriend who is losing his sparkly appeal.
Not to say that these silly social media “relationships” haven’t matured… into a deeper love, of course… but I can’t help but feel this way.
Do I just get bored too easily? Perhaps I’m just suffering from social media fatigue.
The undeniable truth is that Twitter has “changed”.
There isn’t as much of that fun, organic conversation that there once used to be. In the early days, it was all about connection, engagement and conversation – not promotion and selling and the ‘brand’.
Maybe it’s just as simple as reducing the ‘noise’ and filtering out all the ‘junk’.
Is it just me or is Twitter starting to lose its mojo?
