Do you know who is watching you, or can you catch a social disease from social media?

Can you catch a social disease from social media? Do you know who is watching you?

I tweet, do you? I admit I amOwl Eyes still waiting to see what it is going to do for me. Tonight I decided to check out who is following me. I know I get emails when someone follows me, but unless you click the link to take you to their twitter page, you don’t know anything. Often times I see the email notification from twitter on my blackberry. I don’t click links from my blackberry unless I know I have to, then later forget about it. I do recognize my AR friends when they decide to follow me, I know who they are and am happy about that. … but…

As I said, I checked it out tonight. Here is what I found:

1 local person whom I do not know, good thing.Twitter
Fellow ‘rainers, all good
Some sales people in connection with real estate, not unusual
New Milford GOP, interesting, I am not exactly GOP material… but oh well.

A cousin of mine, we tweet, saves time, he’s busy, I am busy, all good
And 4 I deleted. When I clicked to find out more about them, no other way to put this, all porn. For the second I was on their tweet profile I felt dirty, like I had to go shower! ICK!

How about you? I do know there are sleazy people everywhere. But what in my tweets or blog or website or tweet bio would ever lead them to think I actually would write something that would be interesting to them, or that I would reciprocate?

The good news is, I have not yet run across a wanna be porn star on AR, and I am certain that the powers that be would not allow that. I bet it wouldn’t take long for them to find the vermin and weed them out.

I sure do hope you can’t catch a social disease from social media.

I’m just saying….
