NO-ONE CAN SEE YOUR πŸ’—S

Don't πŸ’— my Tweets. 
RT them but don't πŸ’— them.

It used to be that if you liked something on Twitter you'd RT it.
Then Twitter added the πŸ’—
Everybody thought a πŸ’— worked like an RT and followers could still see what you πŸ’—


WRONG.

Your πŸ’—s don’t appear in your timeline.

Check you timeline: you won't see any of your πŸ’—s there.
So your followers can’t see what you πŸ’—

Only the recipient sees your πŸ’— 
Your πŸ’—s go into your LIKES file, used only by ADVERTISERS to sell you stuff based on your πŸ’—s.

So, responding to a personal Tweet or promo with a πŸ’— is a waste of time. Nobody will see it, nobody will be able to make contact or a purchase or enjoy anything you πŸ’—.  
That's why, if you πŸ’— my Tweets, I'll take it as a personal insult. :-)         

The πŸ’— has practically killed Twitter as an interactive medium.

The point of Twitter is to get our Tweets to as many people as possible. And the only way to do that is to RT.
An RT appears in your timeline and reaches all our followers & their followers & so on. Potentially hundreds, thousands, even millions of people could see an RT. People who may want to follow us, contact us, buy something we're selling, or simply be amused or enriched by the Tweet.
 

If you don’t RT what you like to your followers, Twitter will never be anything more than an advertising platform for BIG BRANDS and FAMOUS people.
