|Me looking at twitter.|
I've recently made a decision to join the Instagram community. And like the way I do anything, Instagram was no exception. The way I operate is actually a very bad idea. When I start something, I start it enthusiastically and by however time, the love has gone. Instagram has got me far (I think it's far) with 4 thousand followers. To me, that's a lot. However, in the epic battle, I think that twitter wins.
I use twitter and instagram for very different reasons.
Twitter is my way to connect to authors and other bloggers. It's also for idle conversation and twitter parties, which I love very much. Twitter only has 1.6 thousand followers, but because of the reason I use twitter, I don't really care how many followers I have.
Instagram, however, is like the opposite. The reason I have Instagram is for a fandom account. I post two second edits that people seem to praise over (okay?) and do shoutouts to get followers. It isn't something I really take too seriously, but I like being able to have 4 thousand followers if I ever need help or friends.
When I started using it, I decided that it was VERY different from Twitter. And that's why I prefer twitter.
Instagram is full of teenagers and however-old other people. I wasn't aware that people were going to be mean and nasty. After all, I've only really known twitter and everyone I follow is decent. If they weren't, I wouldn't have followed them (duh...) When I first started Instagram, people ignored me because I only had like 50 followers. I didn't realize that it would be so superficial, that people would only be interested in interacting with me if it were 50 thousand. It was so superficial that I gave up for some time.
After a while, I came back to it and I regret what I did a little bit. I decided to become just like everyone else which is how i achieved four thousand. The only reason I'm still on instagram is because of the friends I've made.
Twitter will still be the one true home for me, but Instagram is a place I can go where I know someone will be there to DM me and talk. People on Instagram are more around my age but that doesn't necessarily have benefits (drama drama dramaaaa!)
