The dark side of twitter

Hello friends πŸ™‚

It’s a beautiful afternoon here in my part of England, this morning was overcast and very much cooler than our recent heatwave – a perfect morning for a run! – but as the day has progressed the clouds have drifted away and the sun is now shining again.

Yesterday evening I was busy writing on my laptop with twitter open in the background.Β  I’d noticed I was on 299 followers and was curious as to whether I’d reach 300 before switching off.Β  I saw that I’d had a message, so I opened it and this is what it said…

twitter stalker

WTF?!!!!!Β  Freaky weird guy alert…

leave me alone

I immediately did what any sensible person would do.

I blocked him.

And changed my profile picture.

Then changed my profile picture on my Blue Sky Days Facebook page.

And then changed my name and moved house… πŸ˜€

      Only one weird guy in 300! And two who have bought my book! It’s a fair trade 😁

      1. Nice! I keep thinking I probably should just go ahead and take the plunge but I haven’t convinced myself to do it yet.😊

        I wasn’t convinced to begin with and having had a personal account for some years with no real interest was a bit baffled by it. I’m finding it useful to build up my poetry contacts, but I think it’s only worthwhile if you can commit to using it regularly.

    I haven’t gotten into Twitter as much as other social networks so have not seen that myself, but I did see it in Facebook when I had to take my profile public in order to connect with university classmates and get them into a private community dedicated to our degree.

    OMG the creepers…
