So… fuck. It’s been an uphill battle with trying to get back on Twitter after I was VERY WEIRDLY suspended from seven accounts overnight last week. Half of them I hadn’t looked at in years, and one of them I cannot gain access to at all, which I think must be the one that was hacked. So yeah, fuck.
Two of those accounts were “accused” of trying to evade permanent suspension by starting new accounts (never mind they are both almost 10 years old) but there is no Twitter rule that I know of that stops me from using other accounts I have had going before the suspension. Enter @azahartapas, which I started in 2017 when I thought I’d need a separate account for my Azahar Tapas website.
So I am not breaching any rules by using this account, but it means I have to start over from zero. That means zero followers & friends, and also me trying to find all my friends again. And well, in the past day or so I’m up to just over 100 followers. Think it will take a while for me to get back to the almost 8,000 I had before. Anyhow, please stop over at the new place and give my pinned tweet an RT and @azahartapas a follow. 💛
So how many of you are on Clubhouse? I joined a couple of weeks ago but haven’t used it much. Still kind of figuring it out. It’s not super intuitive, but looks like it could end up being interesting. And like any social media platform it’s only as interesting as the people you follow there. So far for me it’s mostly food and wine people.
It’s an audio platform, which makes it a bit different. For me it’s a bit like having the radio on and listening to conversations on various topics. Some you can join in, others have a set panel of “experts” talking and then we do the listening. And you can create your own conversation rooms and make them either public or private. Anyhow, as I say, it’s still early days for me. I remember back in 2007 when I couldn’t see the point of Twitter, and now I practically live there. So we shall see.
For now Clubhouse is invitation only and only available on iPhone. I still have a couple of invites but please only ask for them if you think you’ll use them. There are about half a dozen I sent out and the people still haven’t signed up. Not a big deal, but I’d prefer to send them to those who actually want to try this out.
Reached a couple of milestones on my Instagram accounts this week. Got just over 6500 followers on the Sevilla Tapas account, and finally nudged up to 1200 on Azahar. I don’t know if you guys follow me over there, but they are my most visual social media accounts. Twitter (for both @sevillatapas and @azahar) is my more chatty platform. And Facebook… to be honest, I only use it to post links to there. I’ve just never liked it, but I keep it going for those friends who only use FB. Anyhow! If you are on Instagram and are not yet following me there, well what are you waiting for? 😉
So yay! I have got up to 6,000 followers on my Sevilla Tapas Instagram. Yeah I know, not exactly INFLUENCER numbers 😉 but I always like to celebrate a click over to the next K. I’m actually much more active on Insta and Twitter than I am on Facebook, so if you’re interested pop over and say hola.
