Beware of what you post on twitter. Unless you are aware of how the system works, or at least have a feel for it, you will be apt to unnecessary emotional and mental transgressions.
On Sunday I updated my twitter saying “best way to start perfect Sunday is by eating carb-laden pancakes” and within hours I got a tweet from what appeared to be a spam account trying to sell me weight loss plan.
This didn’t happen once. Every time I update my status with “Insanity”, “P90X” and the likes of exercise, even the word “exercise” gives lead to a tweet from a spam account trying to get me to check out their website or buy something from them (in relation to fitness).
Some of these maybe working with keywords. “Exercise”, “exercise plan names” etc I get it but how the heck can they make a search through “pancakes”.
Unless they base their sole assumption that anyone who consumes pancakes, despite the duration, amount and that person’s current health status, they must be fat and they must be desperate to lose weight.
By sending such a tweet with hooks and desirable promise to those who seek “lose a million pounds within minutes” gimmick, this not only gives false hope to someone who may actively be trying to get healthy, but also offends the one who occasionally has cheat days.
Unnecessary emotional and mental transgression.
Beware, be aware.
