To: Web 2.0 brewers and other people of the beer on Twitter,
Don't send out messages like you are on IM with your BFF. We like you but we like other people, too. We, the followers, check out our Twitter accounts only a few times a day and you share that space with others. And don't post twelve times in a couple of hours, either. Messages 7, 9 and 12 were just not that interesting. You come off as a loudmouth blathering dingbat and are not playing nice with the others we follow by crowding them out. That makes you a twit and there are consequences for that. There have to be consequences to such crimes to good beery social networking.
So, for abuses to my Twitter patience, I have put Dogfish Head on probation until further notice. I follow them not until such time as I forget why I so ordered. I trust the principles of general deterrence apply and will have the desired effect.
