Sometimes I think that I'm in the minority these days, but the primary purpose of social media microblogging should be about talking to people and forming interpersonal relationships, not about Everyone Seeing You, or about Delivering Content, or about Being Influential.
Self-promotion and marketing is all well and good but it should be our secondary focus, not our primary one. Work is not life, business is not friendship, shouting from a soapbox is not conversation.
