Goodbye Twitter

I deactivated my Twitter account this morning. I got 5 emails in a row from them saying they’d detected a suspicious sign in attempt. My account has been hacked a couple of times in the past, too. The hassle factor of using Twitter is just not outweighing the usefulness of it. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten more than one or two views, total, referred from my Twitter postings.

So if you were following me on Twitter to keep up with this blog…you probably don’t exist! Ha! Ok, maybe there are a few of you out there, although I’m somewhat skeptical about that. Anyway, you can always hit the “Follow” button over on the right there —> to get email or other types of updates when I post.

This week I’m focusing on mixing cardio and strength. And reducing my caloric intake because I had a crazy weekend at Costume College with probably too much eating for the last few days, so I’m working on balance. Also today is my wedding anniversary, so there’s that.

    This post makes my reluctance to join Twitter seem justified.
    Happy anniversary to you and your dapper guy.

      Thanks! Yeah, I had an account for a bit over a year, and I think I got maybe 3 click-throughs in all that time, and minimal interactions. I suppose if I had the time to get on there and post tons of stuff and hashtag it all maybe it would be worth it, but ain’t nobody got time for that!

    I had the exact same experience. You can still look at other people’s twitter accounts if you want. I really didn’t use the account and got tired of being told my account was shut down.
