15 Twitter Activities That Make My 3yr Old Nephew Want To Kick You In Your Poo

Posted by in Twitter Marketing

15 Twitter Activities That Annoy Your Followers.

I know what you’re thinking “Really JP.. that’s the title you chose?” haha

But let me explain where the inspiration came from for this awesome title. You see I have a 3 yr old nephew, names Shea and his new thing is telling you that he will kick you in your poo.

I was working on this twitter activities post this week when Shea came to visit a couple twitter activitiestimes and each day all I heard was…

“John Paul, I’m gonna kick you in your poo…(insert hysterical laughing by him)

No Shea you can’t have Doritos at 8 in the morning – “John Paul, I’m gonna kick you in your poo”

No Shea you can’t play Angry Birds on my phone – “John Paul, I’m gonna kick you in your poo”


After asking me to buy him EVERY toy that we saw on TV and me finally saying no to one I got – “John Paul, I’m gonna kick you in your poo”

Ok, you get the idea. The boy is stuck on it and I have to say… I literally LMAO each time he says it :)

So all credit for that title goes to my 3 yr old nephew Shea.

But I think it fits nicely with the Twitter activities that annoy me topic we are talking about today.

15 Twitter Activities That Are Annoying

 

1. Thanking You For An RT With Post and Link

Apparently the RT I gave you wasn’t enough, you now have to Thank me for the RT and include your post and link in the Thank U?

ex: Thanks for the RT John on my “posts title and link”

When you Thank someone for an RT, you are showing appreciation for them tweeting you.. this is not the time to try to share your crap AGAIN.

2. Tweeting Links To Your Stuff

I have talked about how annoying this is many many times, yet I still have good people tweeting me “their stuff” when I didn’t ask for it. If you want to share something with someone then send it thru DM’s first then send a simple tweet saying “Hey John just sent you a DM”

That way you’re giving me the opportunity to see it, review it and share it.

Spammers tweet garbage links at people all day… this is not something you want to mimic!

3. Thanking Me For A Follow On Stream

This is one of those Twitter activities that just erks me. If you want to say Thank U for a follow then just use the DM system.  That is why it is there, personal messages.

Imagine if your adding 200-500 new followers each day and they ALL said Thank U on your stream.  That would get old REALLY fast and get you a nice swift kick in the poo from my buddy Shea :)

4. Ignoring @Mentions and Direct Messages

If someone has taken the time to write you directly with either an @mention or a direct message the right thing to do is to reply. If we were at a party or an event and I walked up to you and said “Hey. Joe how are you?”

Would you just ignore me?  Of course not. Twitter is a virtual social event/party, so treat it the same way.

5. #FF From People Who Aren’t Following You

#FF is your chance to share some of your great followers with other followers.

This is a time for giving back.

So sharing me in your #FF when you’re not even following me is a straight up way to share YOU and no one else.

That’s like me telling you..”Hey Joe, you gotta see this new movie, it’s awesome.” Yet I never even seen it or seen a preview trailer haha  Sounds stupid right?  That’s how your looking when you #FF people you don’t even follow.

6. Asking For RT’s On Your Tweets

I might piss of a few friends with this one, but I have to be honest. :)

Asking people to RT your tweet WITHIN the actual tweet is just wrong wrong wrong.

I have a couple top marketers/social media experts that I follow and read everything they share, yet on the few cases that they did this the first thing that I thought was…

“Dude, that just look’s desperate and not a good look for you”

People will share your stuff if they liked it, if they didn’t they usually won’t and that is ok, you can’t hit a homerun post each and every time.

Asking for RT’s within your tweet is like asking your date if you can kiss her.. it’s desperate and not something the girl wants to hear. Don’t believe me?

Ask any woman that you know what she would think if she was on a date and the guy said “Ummmm Mary, can I ummm kiss you now?”

Now asking for a RT on a post is just fine if you do it thru email or thru direct messages. That is fine. Doesn’t mean you will get a RT but at least you asked in the right setting and you don’t look desperate.

7. Using To Many #Hashtags

#Hashtags are a great way to spread your tweets out past your following, but to many just makes a mess.

For me I think 1-2 is best, 3 if they are small and on point. But anything more then 4 is a mess, it makes it hard to read the tweet and find the actual url that you want people to click.

Your goal with sharing your stuff is to get it read first and RT’d second… Right?

Then stop making it so hard for people to find the url you want them to click.

8. Self-Promotion Cry Babies

Listen we are ALL on Twitter to promote/share something that is ours. Whether you are promoting your blog, your website, a product or even you, It is all promoting.

If you are following me then it is a good assumption that you are in the blogging, marketing, social media, business, entrepreneur world. So if that is true, then you are here to promote just like me.

You are not on Twitter 36 hrs a day JUST to make friends and chit chat and if you are… Get a damn life haha

Now I keep my personal shares/promotions to about 20-25% that means I share 75-80% of YOUR stuff before mine. So if that isn’t good enough for you thennnnnnn just click the unfollow button and no hard feelings :)

Some people share more of them and some share less, but if you stay close to that ratio then you will have the best results and keep your followers happy.

9. People With No Profile or Background or Image

This is Twitter how-to day one lesson one so why is it you still haven’t got this all set up?  Just ridiculous man.

You want people to share your stuff yet you can’t even take the time to tweak a couple things and share who you are?  You sooo deserve a kick in the poo!

This is the most common sense activity out of all the twitter activities I shared here, yet each day I still see people, real people that are on Twitter, sharing and engaging that haven’t done this simple thing.

If you want people to see YOU and see YOU as real and not a spammer, then get a damn pic up and a profile and if your not to drained from all that work, get yourself a nice background.

10. Linking Your Long Tweets Elsewhere

Twitter is about sharing and sharing within 140 characters. This makes you have to think and be creative to say what you need to in those 140 characters.

When you link your tweet to say, deck.ly it is annoying and a waste of people’s time. What’s worse is most of the few times I did click off to read someone’s full tweet it was for an extra 5 words. All that work for 5 words? Super annoying!

If you can’t be creative within 140 then there is a social site called Facebook that you can use to write mini novels and share with people.

This is inline with to many #hashtags. Treat your tweets like tiny sales pages.

Make it easy for people to get the info they need and make it easy for them to take action.

11. The How R U Promoter

Have you had this happen to you?

When someone says “Hi, how r u?” or “Hey John Good morning” and you reply “since that’s what you should do when someone writes you” and they reply back with links to all their new projects.

Not what I expected back and of course super annoying.

Worse part is there is no real way to stop this A-Hole activity since you never know who will do it and you don’t want to ignore people when they write you.

It’s a catch 22 of annoyingness (not sue that’s a word, but it fits nicely) lol

12. The Lazy Paper.li User

This has to be the laziest way to share content from people you like.

Wouldn’t it be so much better if you just tweeted their stuff? The answer is yes and it’s better for you since now the same 5 people you have on your Paper.li you can tweet individually.

This now puts you in front of each of their followers which might get you shared or followed.

The other reason Paper.li sucks is that most of the time if you have me on it, it’s not even for my post, it’s a tweet I shared.  Again if your goal is to share things from people you like, this is not the way to go.

13. The Zero To Hero

Now I am no expert at Twitter or Social Media and I have never claimed to be and pretty sure I never will claim that. But I have found a system that works for me and has worked for the people I have shared it with, so I do know what I’m talking about.

So when you have someone that decides he wants to be a Hero off your back and your years of hard work, it’s annnoooyyyiiinnngggg!

You know the dude that’s has been on Twitter for years with dry results and the same 300 followers and decides he wants to tighten up his twitter game and reads a few posts, gets some advice and 3 weeks or so later they think they are the go to Twitter superstar!

That is just silly!

Take this one annoying step further…

The guy that knows nothing decide to buy your guide and read it… and few weeks later tells you they plan to write their own guide. Your results haven’t changed yet and you haven’t developed your own system that works.

The only thing that changed is you read my book and now you’re ready to write your own? Ridiculously annoying!

But that is the internet for you, anyone can be anyone they want. No proof needed.

14. Social Media “Guru” With A Follow Ratio of 10.1

This has to be the funniest of all the Twitter activities on this list.

A 10.1 ratio looks like this. You follow 10,000 people and only have 1,000 following you.

This is not a good look for the so called “Expert”

We all follow people and that’s fine, but if you are so good at social media then you should be getting huge follow back for your following. If you not then you may want to stop calling yourself a “expert” because you just look like a moron.

Here’s a secret… when you have 10,000 following and 1000 followers we ALL KNOW your chasing followers.. there is no skill in chasing.

Take this one annoying step further…

The SM expert that can’t get a social share on his blog if he paid for it.  Now if your a SM Expert then the least you should able to do is get shared.

To me Social Media is about getting shared. That is what SM is all about.

So if you call yourself a expert, guru, pro, god or whatever, then you should at least get your stuff shared to prove you know what you’re doing.

15. You Tweet With Every Breathe

You know the person that Tweets every 1-5 min almost as much as they breathe haha

This is annoying and to me counter-productive.

When you tweet that fast you make it hard to choose what I want to read and RT for you. Also doing this gives the person you just tweeted no real chance to get their stuff RT’d thru you since there are always new tweets coming thru every 1-5 minutes.

Now to me the point of sharing my stuff and your stuff is to get it first read and then RT’d. So why tweet in a way that hurts that?

The sales page idea fits here too. A sales page with to many calls to action is a mess, the reader has no idea what to do or why.

Spacing your tweets out more gives that tweet time to work for YOU and leaves you with more free time.

.

That’s it, all the things that annoy me on Twitter. Some of the Twitter activities are just annoying, some are annoying and will hurt your efforts long term.

So if you find you do some of these then you may want to stop since if it’s annoying to me, then there is a good chance it is annoying to other people too.

    John,

    I am so guilty of your first one!!!  BUT I only RT the whole tweet because people tend to forget what they tweeted or can’t follow the conversation.  I am only refreshing their memory.  I never knew that was annoying and I will stop.  If they can’t remember, so be it.

    I absolutely HATE when people do not have some sort of Gravatar.  This is not only on Twitter but on my blog when people comment.  I don’t want to comment to a computer generated monster (that is what I chose if there is not image), I want to speak back to a real person.

    And, guilty yet again.  I love my paperli.  I find it quirky at times when the “featured” tweeter is not really featured in the paper.  Now, since you don’t like, I will take you off of my “You Rock” list and you can no longer be non featured featured in my Paperli. LOL.  Nope, you’ll still pop up, deal with it. LOL. :-)

    I have debated over and over with myself whether or not to kill my Paperli but decided to keep it.  I have had it so long now that I think people actually read it.  I get traffic from it.  Who would have figured???

    Have a great day!
    ~Allie

    John Paul, I love this post! There’s actually one of these things that annoy you that I have been experimenting with because I see so many people doing it. (No, I will not openly admit what it is but you probably have noticed me doing it and it’s annoyed you. :) ) – So, I have officially stopped doing it as of now. 

    As for Paperli, I agree completely with you. I’m done wasting my time even reading them. You are so right on this! “Most of the time if you have me on it, it’s not even for my post, it’s a tweet I shared.” – That drives me nuts.

  • Lora Fisher

    Agreed with most of this, although I have found paperli to great for interaction and appreciated by many. As with all things Social, it’s in how you use it.
    Lora R Fisher

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

    Good article John, I have many agreements but wanted to defend some things a little.  Paper.li isn’t such a bad thing in many cases, too often we get stuck only reading or following the same circle of people’s links, and often I find new sites on my Paper.li feed that I may not have noticed before.  I completely agree with the thanking for following via reply and linking to thank you posts.  

    I rarely ask people to RT my stuff except if I am in a contest looking for votes, which I rarely am in but I think it’s okay for a people to leverage their network to ask for votes.  I do get people who ask me to vote for their stuff, share…etc all the time from Facebook, Twitter, email.  Ironically I get more messages on facebook from people asking me to “check out their site” than I do on Twitter and I have 10x more Twitter followers than Facebook friends. 

  • http://kikolani.com/ Kristi Hines

    Cute title and photo!  I’d just like to say that I do a few of these things, and I see people doing them, but there is good reason for some.Thanking You For An RT With Post and Link – I’ve thanked some people, and they’d reply back with “What of yours did I tweet?” because sometimes it would be something off of a multi-author site.  I’ve also tried “Thanks for tweeting my post on Analytics” and then gotten a tweet from someone else asking where the post on Analytics was.  I don’t do it just to get another tweet count in which is what some others do which is pretty noticeable.Thanking Me For A Follow On Stream – Back when I had time to do this, I would do it publicly.  A lot of people have told  me they never read their DM’s due to the spam, so I really only DM people who I know are actively watching that stream.  If I’m not sure, I go public.

    Using To Many #Hashtags – Totally agreed.  Someone was trying to have a conversation with me and their tweet had almost every word except a, an, and the as a hashtag.  I’m not even sure what the point was except to turn me off to their message.  :)

  • http://twitter.com/michellecruble Michelle Ruble

    love this post great rules for new folks on twitter for sure!!!

  • http://www.unleashingthetiger.com Dean Carlton

    This post made me smile JP, I recognised most of those types!

    As a paper.li user though, I hope you won’t be ‘kicking me in my poo’…….

    I have set it up in such a way that I am constantly exposed to new ‘on topic’ (i.e. my topics!) tweeters – so it automatically provides me with new folks to follow and engage with as well as different stories from those I may pick up directly from my stream/other lists. Some of those stories I then RT if I feel they are of particular relevance to my followers.

    For those that I regularly tweet (including my inner circle – which you know you are part of), it is business as usual – I read and RT content from them as well. Though my overall ‘Twitter/blog action’ has been down for the last few months due to my workload.

    So, you gonna ‘kick me in the poo’??!!

  • Anna Nowak

    Great post!

  • Danny Brown

    Okay, sir, your three-year old nephew is my new favourite person! :)

    You know, it’s funny how often so many things that annoy us do so because of a lack of (using) common sense. 

    The ones that really bug me are the ones who RT only things that are positive about them – blog posts, tweets, etc. Seriously, that just makes me want to kick you in the poo, you ass! :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    haha I will relay the message to the lil monster.

    I agree.. I should of added that to my list. No one is perfect, so why try to act like you are? Such BS.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Dean it annoys me because so many people use Paper.li just to be lazy. But you have a system and your are getting use from it then keep using it.

    For me Im not a fan.. but that’s me.

    lol and no poo kick for you man… I Appreciate all the support on Twitter.. no complaints on your usage. :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    TY Michelle.. glad you liked the post and got a laugh from it :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Glad you liked the title and pic Kristi.

    I hear what your saying on why you sometimes thank a Rt with the link.. if that is the case then cool. But I see MANY people doing this and Im pretty sure it’s not for the same reason you do it haha

    We all have annoyance levels… these 15 hit mine.. but to you or someone else it jsut may be fine.

    For me I go DM first then a tweet, but I have sent a tweet in stream before, sometimes for my Follow Friday post because how jacked up the DM’s are. Occasionally it’s fine, but it should not be the norm.

    The hashtag issue is a problem I see a lot. But it’s funny that someone was hashtaging your convo lol That brings my point hoe perfectly. haha

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Hey Justin

    Like I mentioned to Dean.. if your using Paperli and it’s working great… but the majority of people dont use them the way you and Dean may use them. Its a lazy ass way to get simple content that they can share.

    I have no problem with people asking me for a share or tweet, especially for a special occasion like a contest.. I’m happy to help.

    My issue is when people add the “Please Rt” at the end of EVERY post of theirs that they share.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Ty for the comment Lora. Your right, it is how you use it. Problem is not everyone uses it the way you should.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    haha I hope you didn’t take that one thing you did that I mentioned to heart. I put it on the list because I have seen many people do it for a long time.. drives me nuts.

    You tried it, at least you can say you are testing new things to see what works for you. That’s the only way to see if things work,, test for yourself, so I can’t fault you for that :)

  • http://twitter.com/InspiredRD Alysa Bajenaru, RD

    Love these! I have been on Twitter for a little more than a year now, and I think you are spot on with everything. I hope everyone reads it!

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    TY Alysa.. glad you liked the post :)

  • http://twitter.com/kirri_white Kirri White

    Hi JP – I have to admit that I am guilty of some of the twitter ‘not so cool’ behaviors you listed…pls don’t kick me in the poo!

    It’s a bit of a reminder for me not just to ‘follow’ the form of others just because they have a huge following. I should stick with what I know instinctively to be good twitter manners.

    Thanks for the kick :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Your right,, do things you believe are right now what others are doing. I may get away with something that you wont be able to and vice versa. Stick to what you feel is right and is working for you and you will be good.

    And I promise, no poo kicks for you :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Allie, I hear why you resending the link in with the TY but to me I think more people take it the wrong way then the way you want them to (being helpful) For me I wouldn’t do it :)

    As far as Paperli, I’m just not a fan at all lol but if you feel people are reading ti and its bringing you traffic then who am I to argue with that.. keep using it. and Ill just deal with being the non featured featured story lol

    Im with you on the Gravatar.. its such a simple thing to go add your pic and be done with it forever.. silly.

  • http://www.unleashingthetiger.com Dean Carlton

    LOL, my poo can relax then! ;o)

    Good night, JP :)

  • http://sweetsfoods.com/ Gera

    So true the points John!! I want to add my two cents and other perspective in some of them:

    I know several people don’t read DMs. It’s risky to send it if you don’t know if it’s ok or not.
    Agree totally to ignore @mentions is bad, so bad!

    About TY for the RT, I add the title or subject of the same but not the link.  

    #FF, I recommend people that I follow, but in some cases, I follow via twitter-lists and not directly. Of course, if it’s a complete strange is wrong 😉

    Not having a pic, avatar, is a silly thing, but why on comments on other blogs you see over and over default avatar logos.. don’t understand is only few mins to do it.

    And gurus or experts with a ratio 10.1, are just a joke :)

    Cheers,

    Gera

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Hey Gera.. I agree that the new Dm system is a mess.. so for me I DM and send a tweet letting them know I DM’d.. so I stay clean and get the message to where it needs to go.

    Following thru lists is tru.. but I doubt many people do that.. I think the majority are looking for self service.. not good :)

    I agree on the comment avatars,, something so simple that you do one time and stay there for ever. just laxy people I guess.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Astro-Gremlin/100002297905662 Astro Gremlin

    I just unfollowed a “tweet with every breath” twitterer.  So many tweets that I wanted to kick him in the poo.  Before I did I checked out the blog.  Yep, self-proclaimed social media guru   with a hard sell landing page and zero traffic.  Just lots and lots of Twitter follows and followers.  Thanks taking Twitter with a grain of salt and a bit of irreverence.

  • http://www.thelongestwayhome.com/blog/ Dave

    Can I add: People who do nothing but RT RT RT RT RT all day. Or worse, is sudden spurts. It’s so obvious they have not even read the post. 

    Also, Twiber people. Auto tweeting other peoples posts … how low can you go …

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    I had to drop a few “breathers” too..

    Glad you enjoyed the post and the jokes :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    haha Dave I agree on BOTH counts. At some point you need to READ a post and you NEED to share something original from YOU.

    Not a fan of group or autotweeting.. maybe thats why my tweet counts have a dropped a lil lol…. oH well.

  • http://twitter.com/christinegeraci Christine Geraci

    This. Is. Awesome. This is a post everyone can learn from. And now I so want to meet your 3-year-old nephew. Although I’m afraid he’ll teach my 20-month-old how to say “poo.” LOL

    Hey John,

    Well you definately got yourself one hell of a unique title! :)

    Great post & one that I think many people will either agree with, or see themselves doing some of these things.

    Keep up the great work
    Matt

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Thanks Matt.. yea have had a few people admit they do some of these haha But hey, if no one tells you its annoying, how will you know to stop? or change?

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

    Yeah, the only time I ask readers to share is my poetry players when I send them the link to completed poem.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    That’s different since they participated.. so that’s cool to ask.

  • http://merciful-blessings.blogspot.com/ Merciful Blessings

    Hey John!  After this mornings comments I came back through – HILARIOUS some of these are!  Unfortunately I’m guilty of a few :/ – some I will change, some I’m not so sure… either way, GREAT READ!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZGOUDCYIIB6OSKPATVYZDQEBSQ Apsignificant

    I’ve been using Scoopit for 4 months now, though more as a repository for the articles I like, than for social media purposes. I don’t know if the same thing can happen, that you point it with paperli. I like to share knowledge and news around (after all, I originally trained as a journalist, so I can’t avoid that philosophy).  But only recently I realized it was also a way of getting people in my new line of business to know that I’m keeping up to date on these specific topics.  Sort of like buying a membership into the clan of people who are “in” this club (i.e. this line of business). What do you think?

    you may not CLAIM to be an expert BUT some of us refer to you as one…

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Glad you like the post. Changes are up to you.. haha But chances are if they are annoying to me, they are annoying to many.. something to think about :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    I think you can share the same info by hand which would have a better results then using paper.li or scoop.it or any other lazy way :)

    That;s my opinion :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    TY for that.. I Appreciate it :)

  • http://www.extremejohn.com Extreme John

    Excellent write up John. You have enumerated the annoying twitter activities perfectly. Tweeting with every breathe is the most annoying to me. I see a lot of tweeters who do that and it just annoys me. It’s like listening to a person who talks without pausing or breathing. Just makes me feel like i’m running out of breath myself. And on top of that, if you tweet fast, you really miss each post being RT’d. 

  • http://twitter.com/emailyogi Sundeep Kapur

    JP – how about a number 16 that would make our nephew happy. A self proclaimed expert tweets about her personal ramblings, inlcuding ‘enjoying 4 cubes and a scotch with the hubby’ or ‘taking ping and pong to school,’ or ‘my ping and pong can beat ur kids at the game.’ It might be okay if it was to her select group of followers, but she adds those hashtags and makes it all the more worthy of a visit from your nephew.

    Nice post. 

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Glad you liked it John. I have to agree man.. tweeting every 2-3 min is probably my most annoying too. And the worse part it hurts your results AND it’s more work to find that man damn things to share lol

    Then you add to that,, your not giving the tweet enough space to do its job.. “get shared”

    Completely ass backwards things to do.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    haha Sundeep I wish I knew about those.. I would of added them and def worth a kick in the poo from my nephew lol

    I think people forget that what you say is seen by EVERYONE and not everyone gives a shit lol

  • http://twitter.com/hollicbuck Holli B – @hollicbuck

    So what about a person like me with a 2:1 follower ratio – mostly because I tend to follow a number of British comedians, actors and directors? I’m still cool, BTW.

    Seriously, this is a great list and I’m sure when Shea is older, he’ll appreciate the fact that you’ve used his catchphrase in this post. Great info!

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    TY for your first comment Hollie :)

    A 2:1 ratio isnt great but at the same time,, your not telling people your a SM expert lol That is where the ratio really becomes annoying.

    John Paul, this was Pure Awesomeness, bud! Loved the pointers you made here. Some of which I myself have been guilty of like the more than 3 #hastags, (Oops, did I do that?) but not after today though. 😉 Thanks for that tipper!  

    Then there were plenty other’s I have been annoyed by myself. The “egg” is the worse for me! I don’t understand why some people don’t feel the need to put a profile pic up, instead of a random egg shot. That’s so tacky! I don’t even waste my time reading the message I simply block or report as spam. :)

    Oh man! This post is so share worthy! I may have to RT myself a couple of times with this one, just to get the word out… Wait, is that on the list? LOL :DGreat post mate!

    Deeone.. you can share it as much as you like man haha

    I’m glad you liked the psot.. trust me I have been guilty of a few myself in the beggining. Sometimes you dont know what your doing is bad till someone tells you.. so I figured I would tell people what annoys me.

    But yea to many hashtags just hurt you more then anyone else.. if its confusing,m people will skip it.

    The “egg” is def ridiculous and again it hurts their own results, because I pretty do what you do.. Ignore them.
