Demilade ‘Quakes’ Roberts is one of those tweeps that have a celebrity status on Twitter. Confident, controversial but cool, he is one of the tweeps I personally enjoy following. He lights up my timeline with his witty, outspoken and sometimes utterly irreverent tweets.
He is our next YNaija Twitter Personality and he tells us about his twitter experience so far.
How did you get on Twitter?
April 2009 I was watching Larry King live and they were talking about this new social site Twitter and I signed up. Of course I had no idea what to do so I logged out after signing up.
Who would you say is your favourite tweep?
I never scroll past a tweet posted by @Akingbayo!
Is there any particular tweet you’ll never forget tell us about it.
Too many of those, go through my favourites.
Have you had any embarrassing/memorable experience on Twitter?
My most memorable moments on Twitter would have to be the times @TheMofeDuncan and I always used to go at each other for fun.
What are the downsides of being on Twitter?
It has to be the risk of being exposed to ignorant people who refuse to learn.
What are the upsides?
It is having access to a lot of information you don’t come across everyday and a whole lot of laughter, if you’re following the right people.
Has Twitter enlarged your fan base?
I. DON’T. CARE.
Do you follow back readily? Why?
I have rules to a follow back, if I see a persons handle frequently being RTd onto my timeline and the person follows me I follow back instantly. Other than that, I go through the tweets of people that follow me, if u seem interesting I follow back. Other than those…I wouldn’t.
What could possibly make you close your twitter account?
If something better than Twitter is created.
