I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

…why do people do it?

My twitter profile used to say I didn’t want any spam messages. This request was ignored, so I just put up with it and deleted them. But today I received one which actually made my jaw drop, due to its arrogance. It went as follows: Thank you for following me (this person followed me first) please follow me on Facebook and Instagram as well. Yes, your bloody majesty, of course I will (not).

The sheer arrogance, possibly unintended, due to the “please”, took my breath away. And of course, no hint of reciprocation, just the links to this person’s Instagram and Facebook pages. This sheer, unthinking, self absorbed attitude could only bring about one reaction from me, I immediately unfollowed this person. The aim of sites like Twitter and Facebook is social interaction and mutual  exchanges. It never ceases to amaze me that people expect everything their own way and blindly refuse to believe that all they achieve is unpopularity. Well, maybe my unfollowing this person might teach them a lesson, but I highly doubt it. Like love, arrogance is blind.
