The Keef Report....All Your Followers 'R Us.



If you aren't on the TeeVee so that you can attract all kinds of really super-dedicated, super-informed, super-engaged and, of course, super-real followers you should just stay the heckfire off the Twittmachine and leave the social medias to the super-fine super-credible superfine finest of the fine reporter folks like the Keef.


That's the way things should work for sure.

Name calling is generally to be frowned on. However I must say from the evidence I see and read - Mr Baldrey continues to be the Biggest Twit. He is either delusional, egotistical and self unaware, maybe all of the above. Looking in the media mirror he reflects the image of his doppleganger Mr Palmer.

Nice photo in your earlier post - good to wear a snow cap (and toque) in what could be tricky wonderland conditions.

Older sibling Brother, has always seemed to be wiser, an edge of 4 years helps, still comes up with the brightest of ideas on technological advances. In the 1970's he asked: What do you call a canary after it goes through a lawn-mower? Shredded Tweet!

Keith Baldrey might want consider a change of name for his tweet account.

Keef says he’ll “endure”. Of course he will. If he blocks everybody who disagrees with him, he’d have almost no followers. And that total seems to be his raison d’ĂȘtre. It’s obvious he values it more than journalistic integrity, and just slightly ahead of his master’s favour.

Slate contributor, Seth Stephenson, on gaming twitter:

"Cultivating a horde of Twitter followers would be a great move for me professionally. It would extend my influence as a journalist and bolster my—yes, ick—personal brand ...

How to augment my small, proud band of 1,100 tweeps? I could have won new acolytes by offering links to timely content. By engaging in sharp intellectual battles. By crafting 140-character bons mots. But, much as I wish I could get jazzed about doing all that stuff (and once in a while I do briefly catch the Twitter bug), I don’t find it spiritually rewarding. To the freelance writer in me, this feels more like unpaid work.
So instead, I bought 27,000 followers from some sketchy Internet sites. Total cost: $202."
