In email marketing you’ll always find that some of your subscribers’ email addresses are not their primary email addy. Why? Because many people are wary of having their email address sold to spammy businesses.
I mean think about it, you hand over your email address to someone in good faith and two weeks later you’re being bombarded by all types of spam emails from car insurance to 50% off viagra.
So people have found a way around this by supplying their “junk email addy” instead.
Now tell me this, who has a junk twitter handle?
Which is why I had to take the time to sign in to twitter today to confirm I wasn’t following the chic that posted this on G+.
So I could unfollow her. Cause of course that’s the way to handle it. And yes, it’s super easy.
But I personally find that THIS bites.
I mean, ok, I have not been on Twitter much, but when did this happen?
When did people start selling out their followers?
How fair is THIS to us who followed?
I mean, HELLO, is it because I’m a virtual contact that you feel it’s ok to sell me out?
To pass me to the highest bidder?
What kinda BS is this?
Someone please tell me, is this what’s been going on while I’ve been away?
Do you feel it’s ok to sell your twitter handle, because it’s “yours” and you can do what you want though it means selling out your network?
