Twitter is a world unto its own, very different from Facebook for sure. What makes it so different? I call it rapid-fire communication. There are tools to keep track of everything, by keyword, user, or whatever, and I use one called TweetDeck, and it makes life easy.
If a person is using only a mobile device which is too small for all the columns of action on TweeDeck, it is hard to keep up with a busy account, it just flies past and you miss it. In fact, I’m sure there are others like me who just hide and watch most of the time.
Back to the main issue, blocking users. If you ever take a look at Trumps feed, at least 75% of the comments are negative. Of course this fluctuates up and down, but the lefties have him cornered there and as long as he keeps giving them stuff to chew on, they’ll be there. Maybe by design? Data collection is vital and Twitter offers plenty of it.
Anyway, if you had someone commenting over and over with nothing but really bad language or just not being nice, you would block them too! You have to do it, they drive away folks who just don’t want to see it.
