I was randomly searching for people to follow on Twitter. Decided I would type in “Houston, TX” since I live in the Houston area so I could follow some local folks. Start looking through the 21 pages of results and I find at least two or three people on every page have their updates protected.
What’s the point?
I mean a part of me gets it. You don’t want the entire world to read your updates. But at the same time, why sign up for an overly social site if you’re going to basically be anti-social? It seems counter-productive to me. Maybe, I’m just a little more open with my updates, but I also wouldn’t post something that I was not comfortable with the whole world knowing anyway. I guess I’m just careful like that.
Anyone have any thoughts on this matter? Are you someone who has their Twitter updates set to private? If so, why? I would really like to know and understand.
