Am I the only one bothered by this?
Sorry if someone’s requested to follow me on Twitter and I haven’t accepted or declined your request. Just, there’s a lot of people requesting to follow me on there and I feel kinda weird accepting them if I don’t know them from other places on the web. Not that it should matter because I don’t share my personal info anywhere on the Internet but, again, I feel weird having people read my personal tweets whom I don’t really know.
I guess this is just a general PSA that if you find me somewhere else on the web and you want to “follow” or “friend” me, please tell me if you know me from somewhere else (like LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, or here), that way I know where you’re coming from when you add me. Because I feel like there are a lot of requests coming my way from products/authors I don’t really want to follow. (Like you talk about shoes or whatever once in a blue moon on there and suddenly there are like five people with the name “shoes” in their username trying to follow you. I’m sorry but if I want to follow a shoes-related Twitter account, I can find them myself.)
And I also talk a lot about fandom/writing on there, and I definitely do not want any people associated with my fandoms in any official capacity to be privy to my thoughts (or really any random person out there on the Internet). It’s a weird thing with me - I do not like breaking down the fourth wall.
