1) THREAD... Firstly, what I’m about to say it not a reflection on the vast majority of #indyref2 folk on Twitter, but it does reflect on a small number of people. Most of you have and are extremely welcoming, but I felt like I had to a tweet in regards to ‘following back’...
2) When a new person joins Twitter to get involved, people need to stop being so obsessed with following back. Don’t berate a new person for not following back, they may not know how to. Or they may be slower in doing it, because they are getting used to this. Life is not all
3) about following back... How do you really think it looks for a new person to be excited to get involved in Twitter, just to be made feel like shit and basically given into trouble by grown adults for not following back quick enough? You were all new to Twitter before, you all
4) had to take time to get to grips with it. I genuinely had to talk one my friend into continuing with Twitter because she felt people were angry at her for nothing - and that’s from the independence side, not the unionists. I haven’t even prepared her for that side to Twitter
5) yet. We need all the help we can get and the more people getting involved with independence and Twitter the better. Let’s not chase them away before they get started. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
