The Rules of Twitter

A very popular social media trend right now is to discuss in length all about  the growing pains of everyday problems users are facing with Facebook on the Twitter platform. This thought process confuses me. Lets pretend for a moment I own a Ford truck and I am having mechanical problems. If I wanted to find advice or help on the web about my truck, I would look in a Ford truck forum group. It would just be silly for me to post my problems in a GM truck forum. So with this mind-set I have adapted the Fight Club Rules to fit my personal pet peeve.

Facebook vs Twitter by Jess3

1st RULE: You do not talk about Facebook on Twitter.

2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about Facebook on Twitter.

3rd RULE: If someone says “stop” or the conversation goes stale, the conversation is over.

4th RULE: Only two people to one thought process.

5th RULE: One conversation at a time.

6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes. (Good rule – No change necessary.)

7th RULE: Conversations about Facebook will go on as long as they have to on Facebook.

8th RULE: If this is your first day on Twitter, you promise not to tweet about Facebook.

    So where else might one discuss Facebook woes with those who may offer immediate solutions. Many people that I follow on Twitter, I follow for their expertise and willingness to help out when there is a question like, “What happened to FBML pages this morning?” (Seriously, what DID happen to FBML pages this morning…)

    I might add that I trust a Facebook discussion/suggestion from a user I “know” on Twitter vs a Facebook Forum. Therefore, I personally turn to Twitter when I have a Facebook question and typically get an immediate response. So yeah, I guess I’m a Fight Club rule breaker…

    Rule #6 is my favorite.

      This post was meant to poke fun at a weird social media system we have in place. How often do people ask questions about twitter on facebook? Facebook these days is a very hot topic, weather we are talking about growing pains or even privacy and security.

      It is important to continue those lines of communications on twitter about anything that is important to you. If people don’t want to listen they can turn it off.

      Thanks for the comment!

    Love the artwork. Guilty. I RT’ed once about FB today, but it was a nice article about Zuckerbeg sweating it out. http://ht.ly/1UlA5
    I will not drink his (Zuckerberg’s) milkshake anymore.
