Thanks for this. I’ve really been wondering about the value of Twitter for awhile now. Here’s something that happened to me on there that I find interesting — a tweet of mine got retweeted by a kind-of Twitter celebrity with 50k followers, and subsequently that tweet got retweeted by others over 100 times (and counting) and liked 150+ times (and counting).
But I only seem to have gotten four followers on that. Just a few years ago, a retweet like that would have gained me probably 100 followers, but these days it’s like no one cares anymore.
And I think that’s just it: no one cares anymore.
