How I feel about Twitter

June 4, 2020

I love Twitter. I hate Twitter.

Twitter is the first social media platform that I embraced. In all these years I’ve shied away from becoming an avid poster or ever tasting “popularity” on platforms like Facebook, Instagram and the likes.

Twitter is the first platform that felt like home!

Everyone’s talking useful stuff. Everyone’s trying to be helpful to others. Everyone’s sharing their experiences and learnings.


But then came all the bad parts.Virtue signalling. Echo chamber. Fake authenticity. Following templatized patterns to gain followers and quick likes.


I saw myself devolving into these patterns as I started posting more regularly. I disconnected from Twitter, almost completely.

But Twitter is still valuable. There are authentic people. I just have to filter through the noise, find the signal.

I decided to get back to Twitter, and find a way to make it work, without losing myself and compromising on my principles.

Step 1 - Get rid of the algorithmic feed by unfollowing all accounts and moving them into topic-wise lists.

Step 2 - Regularly post learnings from all aspects of my life that I want to share.

I don’t care about likes or retweets. I care about having meaningful conversations, and helping out others, even if it’s just 1 person.

Let’s begin.

By the way, I teach a course called Learn Programmatic SEO to help grow Google search traffic.

Programmatic SEO is a methodical and data-driven approach to finding keywords, understanding user intent and creating dozens or hundreds of pages of content.

Learn how to apply this framework to your business, whether it's ecommerce, SaaS, or even a side project. No prior SEO knowledge required.
