This will be a short blog post. I thought I would be helpful to my friends out there who use twitter and want to keep their followers list clean. Clean as in toilet-scrubber-and-lysol-clean.
I made the mistake at looking a bit more closely at some of the followers that suddenly showed up on my list. “Hmmm. Who is this? Do I know this person?” Needless to say, a single click got me an eye-full.
Here is a tip for you twitter usin’ folks:
Login to your twitter account.
Click on the “Settings” link in the upper right corner.
On the main “Account” tab, right at the bottom, there is a check box for protecting your tweets.
After you turn that on, the very next follower who wishes to sign up will land in a small section on the right column of your main page. You will see a link there to allow you to accept or reject the follower. Pretty simple.
You know, the very fact that I have to do this makes me a bit angry. I hate filthy-image-pushers. Yes, I said the word HATE. From the Book of Mormon, Alma 37:32
“…teach (the people) an everlasting hatred against sin and iniquity.”
Do I hate these pushers as people? No. But I do hate their occupation, their actions, and everything they stand for. I get angry at the fact that they waste my TIME. Time is precious. And because they cause us to have to protect ourselves with anti-virus software, ad-blockers, etc., they are also costing us money.
For all you unrepentant filthy-image-pushers out there: May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits.
Sheesh. I even had to choose my words carefully so my blog doesn’t get accidentally flagged by poorly written protective applications which might think I was actually hosting those types of images on my blog.
What has this world come to?
