Complaint: "You Retweet Too Much Crap."

From the inbox.

Posted on


I have removed you from my Twitter feed because you retweet too much crap. Don't you have any original ideas or content? You're not particularly bright, are you? All you do, day in and day out, is to copy and paste and provide your Twitter followers with old material, which they probably already saw. What a lazy sod you are. This all proves that you are not too bright, hardly an intellectual (or even a good thinker), and have no original ideas.

You're burnt out and it shows. Get off your computer. Seriously, you need to remove yourself from Twitter, go relax for a while, and then possibly return to your laptop and perhaps find something else about which to write. Clearly, you're not cut out for politics.
