Well that was an interesting and different “Corrupted Nerds” podcast recording with @bigmac and @darrenpauli. It’ll be posted on Sunday.

@AndyRickie @darrenpauli That is a level of tyranny to which I can but aspire.

via TweetDeck in reply to AndyRickie

@BlogsofWar I was prevented from doing that by my old machine. Not enough grunt. We have now overcome that limitation.

via TweetDeck in reply to BlogsofWar

@BlogsofWar Exactly. I used to produce complex outside broadcasts for ABC Radio in Adelaide, and I think I’ve over-engineered this.

via TweetDeck in reply to BlogsofWar

@BlogsofWar Definitely, when I’ve used it properly for this next recording, and tidied it up a bit.

via TweetDeck in reply to BlogsofWar

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, @bigmac and I just confirmed that it can do video too, if sufficient bandwidth.

@AndyRickie @darrenpauli Definitely. Because I’m too far away to administer a public flogging.

@jplonie That was an average. When I can be arsed looking at the analytics, I see a huge variation in tweets’ number of views.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@arcadiagt5 Yep, seems about the same in total, and it feels like a reasonably maximum to me.

via TweetDeck in reply to arcadiagt5

I remember a couple of years back, a typical tweet would be seen by about 6% of someone’s followers. Can’t imagine that figure has gone up.

via TweetDeck

I typically link to my own stories 4 to 6 times across 24 hours, then again on the weekend. That seems like plenty without retweeting more.

via TweetDeck

I mean, if you want to tell people about your stuff, just tell ‘em.

I’d put money on it being primarily a habit of people who talk about Twitter using words like “engagement”.

I suspect in part it’s because they’re desperate to self-promote, but they’re already hitting Twitter’s spam detection algorithms.

So what do you think of people who retweet it every time someone compliments them or links to their stuff? My answer is not a compliment.
