I see you've lost some followers since your earlier post.

I should have mentioned it but there's a lot of christian conservatives on there.

You probably pissed a few of them off. Might as well go all out and see how many more followers you can lose with a good ole fashion christ-bashing

Nah, Alex on twitter is a people person.

Edit: Praise Yahweh. You're back to 211.

1,012 followers.

I guess the best way to get followers is to just start adding everyone it suggests, or following other people's followers. Most people follow you back when you follow them. Waiting for other people to find you takes too long.

Once you have a decent amount of followers and people retweeting your page, you don't need to spend as much time getting followers manually anymore.

Of course then you'll be following a ton of people you don't necessarily want to read. Using lists like I described above helps keep the clutter off your news feed.

I went through VNNForum and added a lot of them. I don't want illiterate 14/88 kiddies, I want intelligent adults. What the VNNF twitter followers show, and my own followers too, is a pretty wide range: NS, conservatives, libertarians, religious types, traditionalists, Southerners, decentralists, Europeans, South Africans, veterans - pretty much everyone on the right is agreed on certain basics, as I've said. But only in the important sense that anyone who can demonstrate leadership IN THE FIELD will soak up pretty much all these people. No matter his particular ideology. What each of these has to offer is bettter than what we suffer under now. There are degrees in things, after all. Since no tendency dominates today, we remain in the prove-it periode, the time of infighting. So long as infighting is carried out by rules I've indicated, it is healthy and necessary. When it devolves into mutual character assassination, it becomes destructive. That's why we ostracize anyone on the right who does not observe minimal rules. Would that others hewed to VNN's high standards.

Be principled. Attack our enemies. Support our friends.

Twitter is a valuable tool, and I'm investing a good amount of time in it. Join up yourself, make good tweets, and retweet other good stuff from your fellow racialists. I will keep this thread stickied here to track progress, anyone is welcome to post his personal numbers.

I'm up to 289 followers (8-21-13).

Here's the main point about twitter (I say with one week's perspective): the fear of guilt by association isn't there, as it is here and with most other mediums. One is followed by a wide range of people, I notice from a mere 300 followers:

NS
conservatives
vietnam / other vets
Southerners
rebels
libertarians
media people
muslims
UK EDL types
catholics / traditionalists
patriotards
wolves/eagles - fiercelings
Europeans
randos - really ??? how they came across, or what they're interested in, intriguing
alt-health stuff (these seem kinda spammy)
14/88 kiddies (try to avoid these unless intelligent)
survivalists
kike-hating kikes
Israeli ex-CIA agents

in short, twitter reaches the entire right-wing spectrum, just what we want.

I guess the mentality is: "Well, I follow everybody; doesn't mean I support what they say!"

We really do live in an age when men feel compelled to explain and defend what they put in their eyes.

Pathetic.

Do I smell like a Catholic? I do not. I read what I want. I think what I want. I bow only to objective reality, not to any dress-wearing, fag-supporting, Israeli knob-gobbling Pope Wop.

It's like I said: the battle is for white normals. Which is at least 80% of the white population. Anyone can have them: WN, conservatives - anyone strong enough to take them. Do you grasp what I mean?

If there were a man named Emmett and everybody hated him for good reason, how seriously would people take his cries of anti-Emmettism?

Race trumps religion. As sports analysts like to say: Form is temporary; class is permanent. Christianity is but our race's recent form.

Twitter questions that arise as I use it...

1) is there spam and sex spam on twitter? I have got several (nutrition, health, and IT) that seem bogus, and 1-2 that seem vaguely like porn spam

There are also what we call "promoted tweets", these are "harmless" and don't click on links that tell you: "click here to get free Ipads" or these kind of stuffs..

I haven't seen any stuff that obvious, the stuff I mentioned is subtle. It may be a real account, it may be spam.

Well, I don't know in what form do you get these "spams", Are they sent to you via 'replies' or 'Personal messaging'? After-all, if you're not sure about their authenticity or they have nothing in your interests, just delete it.

Clicking on their name to get to their twitter profile is always harmless (at least, I've never heard of any virus or password theft being accomplished this way) then you can see what tweets they've posted in their time on twitter. If they're always posting the same sort of stuff then they're probably a spammer. They may throw in the odd tweet in pigeon English that doesn't seem quite right in its sentence structure to throw the Twitter banners off their trail.

If they look genuine in early tweets but have suddenly had a link spam or porn spam meltdown, it's possible someone got their password, especially if they have an attractive (high follower) account. If they have a fair amount of genuine followers then it's likely that they're genuine themselves. People don't tend to follow spammers.

The porn spammers tend not to be subtle though, they're usually very in-your-face graphic and they want you to go to their pay per click referral link/phishing link.

There are also bots at work who pick up on key words and either @ you or RT you. There used to be bots who were attracted to the words "fart" and "Duchovny" but I don't know if they're still active. Using the word "follower" usually pulls out the spammers who want you to #teamfollowback which gets you numbers but they're usually not interested in what you have to say, only upping their own followers.

The fucking anonymous bastards have suspended me for the second time in 10 days....Since the first, I've only been following those who follow me, and then only 2 or 3 per day....

I think they mostly suspend accounts when you're messaging other people and they report the posts for 'harassment' or something. If you mostly post stuff on your own page and get followers they seem to let it slide. Not as fun, I know.
