Does no one (apart from a couple of members) tweet any more?

I was spending around an hour or more a day tweeting and retweeting other peoples messages but very few of these got replies or retweets so I got somewhat discouraged and stopped.

I recently started again but there are still very few members, as far as I can see, advertising their wares or retweeting other people's.  I am happy to keep doing this but only if others play their part and make an effort to advertise Artyah as well.  I generally use #Artyah within a message to make it easy for others to find and retweet.   

It only takes a few minutes to search for #Artyah and retweet those messages, longer if you are doing new ones but someone must see them as they fall into the twitter space void . 

I will give it a week or so but if no one is going to retweet I will do as some others do and just do my own again and those few who do retweet.

I had to take a break from social media weeks ago, and haven't fully returned. I'm mostly on Pinterest now. Twitter never has been much use to me over years. Have been off and on the site. Had more followers before. With this new acct haven't build up my following. Before with my old acct I used Tweet Deck and everything. Lots of work, lots of views, especially during Tweet bombing. No sales through Twitter that I can acct for. Twitter is uninspiring to me. Don't know if I'll ever go back there again.

I visit Twitter every few days or so and retweet other members items when I find them just to get the ArtYah name seen by other people.

I've left FB, but do tweet and retweet my shops (and others), and don't expect AY to retweet my shops.
Unfortunately I've only had  one very small sale here, but credit that to the buyer finding me on Twitter.

I have done some Twitter posts, always using #ArtYah and #Home4Handmade, for my products and a few others. As Pinterest doesn't seem to be doing much good, I may up my twitter activity and see if that helps me or other ArtYah sellers.

ArtsyCraftery - I had a look at your twitter account - love that pinned photo, and it has lots of automated posts about people following and unfollowing you.

Christine and Sterling by Dix, I see you tweets and retweets, thank you.

CarpetBagger Creations.  I retweet Artyah items if they come up when I search, I think the whole point of it is tweeting and retweeting others, the co-operation is what may help.

Due to the lack of interest I am not going to be on Twitter every day, but will pop in and retweet, and maybe tweet new items when I am in the mood.

I think that's a great plan for you. While we all work together, in the end we have to do what is best for our own lives. We all have different schedules, obligations, restrictions and also goals.

One annoying thing I hate about Twitter is how many public relations/promotional experts people follow me and then unfollow. The worse part is when someone who has other plans follows me and I follow in return, and then the person unfollows. It seems to be a ploy or deceitful way to gain followers but not follow certain types of accounts.

I like to have a handle on my social media accts, what is happening, who is following and unfollowing. It takes too much of my time and effort to monitor these rampant offenders. I am fed up with this type of thing. It's not occasional, it's every other day. I know that it can't be avoided in Cyber Space. That's why I always say we have to decide what platform is worth our time. Some are more of a headache than others with very little return. 

A lot of sellers are just tired of social media. It's not like it used to be. It's more pertinent now the type of posts/shares that are done. It takes more time to design posts than most sellers have time for. Potential customers are so used to thousands upon thousands of common shared listings every hour that it takes more than that to get attention and make a sale.

Yes, it only takes a little time each day to post to social media and it can help a brand name get around, but is that really going to make a difference when things are so different now? If we can't spend significant time honing our social media skills and learning all of the ins/outs of the platform, and keeping up with site changes, will the old way of doing it really matter? I need more time to create, photograph and list.

I need to change that pinned photo to a spring one. Yes, I signed up with fllwrs.com, and allowed tweets about followers and unfollowers onto my feed, to try to monitor those deceitful practices, but it's still a headache and too time-consuming.
