I noticed a lot of traffic coming from BuzzFeed today – so I went to see why. Below is a screen shot of the page I landed on as it appeared at the time of this posting. I added the yellow highlighting.
So the traffic was getting pointed to this post from yesterday.
But note what I posted: "I like Twitter. If you aren’t careful it can annoy the heck out of you. So I am careful. It is VERY rare that I am not on a PC connected to the Internet – so getting/sending Twitter updates via my cell phone isn’t that important to me. So I shut that off."
Now look what BuzzFeed has titled their link (attributed to my URL) : "If You’re Not Careful, Twitter Will Annoy the Sh*t Out of You". One problem – I didn’t write that.
It doesn’t really bother me all that much – I imagine they found it to be a more compelling link title. But I don’t really like how they make it sound like I wrote it.
