So I made a very upsetting discovery the other day that Twitter has stolen 2285 tweets from my tweet count.
On the 6 Novemeber I had 2300 tweets…
and the on the 10 November I had 15 tweets!!!
What is your tweet count?
You tweet count is the total number of tweets you have ever made on twitter.
Why does yout tweet count matter?
Your tweet count gives people an indication of how active you are on twitter and whether you will be worth following on Twitter.
So now that twitter have stolen my tweets it looks like I have only contributed 15 tweets to the twitterverse in the last 2 years. I wouldn’t be too interested in following someone with such a low level of contribution to this information network.
Luckily for me my follower list is pretty high (Thanks for the support guys!!) and that becomes a recommendation of my value to the people on twitter so hopefully people will overlook my incorrect tweet count and decide to follow me because of the others that have chosen to follow me.
I just hope twitter does not steal my followers next. I wonder if you can insure your tweets and followers?
Turns out I am not the only one this has happened to so if you have had an experience like this comment about it here and maybe twitter will wake up and find a way to give us our tweets back.
UPDATE 24th November 2010: Twitter restored my tweets a few days later. Very relieved – Thanks Twitter!!
