The 5 People I Wish Would GTFO Twitter


I spend a lot of time on Twitter, silently lulzing at people. YOU KNOW YOU DO IT, TOO. While I try to practice kindness and positivity in life, I still enjoy the occasional private snarkfest. It’s normal. It’s not bad. Everyone does it. At least I’m being honest. We can’t like everybody!

Etc etc.

If I could control the internet, here are the 5 types of people I wish would delete their Twitter apps and step away from their phones… forever.

The Incessant Self-Promoter

There are two kinds:

The one who plugs their latest blog entry 5x in, like, 5 hours. Dude, it’s just a pair of fucken shorts— calm down.

The one who RTs entries… to their own giveaways/contests. You know the type! They require a tweet from you to join and that’s fine and dandy but then they go and RT entries BY BULK! And suddenly, MY timeline is filled with tweets by strangers for some dumb contest I don’t care about.

Please don’t be like that.

What you can do: Instead of RT-ing entries, simply tweet and remind people that you have this fabulous giveaway running. It’s that simple!

The Narcissist

The one who RTs… compliments about themselves. A lot like the incessant self-promoter, actually!

I get it— it’s nice when people compliment us but is it really necessary to let your followers know what a certain person thinks about you? Everytime someone says something lovely to me on Twitter, I get the urge to re-tweet them SO I TOTALLY GET YA, COMPLIMENT RT-ER. But I fight the urge lest I want to embarrass myself and earn the eye rolls of some 3000 people.

What you can do: Stop, drop, and roll and just tweet a sweet and simple thank you.

(Though I’ve probably RT-ed a few compliments here and there in the past, heh.)

That Moron Who Live Tweets a Newly-Aired Show (Or Movie)


What you can do: When I think of Ruffa Gutierrez, I think of that time she spoiled In My Life for everyone on Twitter and then proceeded to insult those who called her out for it. Don’t be Ruffa.

People Who RT People I’ve Unfollowed

I hardly unfollow people on Twitter because I’m pretty tolerant and can deal with a huge amount of bullshit as long as I get to laugh about it at the end of the day. However, I will unfollow you IF I HATE YOU. IN REAL LIFE. AS A PERSON. FOR MORAL REASONS.

It’s easy to kick people out of your Twitter life until someone you follow (and like) re-tweets them and poisons your timeline.

What you can do: Only RT quality people.

People Like Me

The internet has no rules, Helga! Stop imposing your will on others! Bitch!

What about you? Who do you hate on Twitter? Let those claws out!

    Personally, I don’t like people who rant about everything on Twitter. As in EVERY. SINGLE. THING. It bums me out as well! Like this one girl stubbed her pinky toe on a table and what followed is a series of tweets with profanity and “huhuhu’s”. Get over it, ate girl. =))

    Also: people who sub-tweet (sometimes me, lol)

    Hahahaha there are no rules for tweeting, Helga!! That being said, don’t be that person who subtweets (lol)

    Yung mga taong laging walang context ang tweet.

  • Reply Dani March 18, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    I live tweet ‘pag events, is that okay? Hahaha! I’m guilty of TV show live tweeting din but usually only ‘pag Doctor Who and mostly quotes! BECAUSE.

    I’ve unfollowed friends who are ~too nega for life and have opinions for EVERYTHING. Unless they can be funny or witty about it.

  • Reply Myrtle March 18, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Maybe those who RTs every compliment they receive. haha I mean, you can just click on that ‘Star’ and favorite the tweet. Pagka ganun na, na almost every compliment iRT na nya, I unfollow instantly (or if he/she is a friend, I mute them nalang lang) even for Artistas I do that. haha

    HAHAHA! I’ve only been active on twitter for less than a month and I find it toxic enough even though I only follow 181 people! Personally I don’t like people who thinks highly of themselves a.k.a. narcissists. I also don’t like ironic people. lol :D

  • Reply Gelleesh March 18, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    People who follows you then asks you to follow back… Like, WTF, do I know you? LOL

    I am never ever on time when watching shows. The best that I can do for a series is to be 1 season behind lol, so I’m pretty much very very tolerant of the “Ruffa” types.

    What irks me the most are those types are those repetitive check-in kinds. Do they really have to tweet that they’re at MRT Santolan station for the nth time??

  • Reply Dre March 18, 2015 at 9:03 pm

    “Don’t be Ruffa.” – this made me giggle! I’ve been spoilt so many times on Twitter (and on Facebook) on shows/movies that I haven’t seen yet. I hate those tweets.

    I hated a lot about Twitter and social media in general. And since I couldn’t control people, I deleted my accounts instead. :))) (but it’s not the main reason hehe)

  • Reply Adrienne March 18, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    People who tweet song lyrics. All. The. Ducking. Time.

  • Reply Michelle B March 18, 2015 at 10:28 pm

    Those who use Twitter like a chat box (more than five replies)! Sometimes group chat pa. Thank goodness for the mute feature! Although it kinda sucks that Twitter for mac doesn’t have it.

    I think Twitter was made for stupidity so I’m not really picky with what comes along. But I think we all agree: DOWN WITH THE SUBTWEETS!

  • Reply Raisa March 19, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    I still don’t get Twitter. :( I get my daily dose of snark from GOMI and Guru Gossip, haha! I admit my Tumblr is pure garbage though.

    • Reply Helga March 19, 2015 at 1:11 pm

      OMG what r ur favorite GOMI threads/who are ur fave GOMIs. I can’t stand ABM lolololololol.


      • Reply Raisa March 19, 2015 at 1:15 pm

        @Helga, yes omg M E S S. I can’t believe people believed her!

        I’ve actually never heard of 99% of blogs there when I first saw it, but now I love lurking the J’s Everyday Fashion thread and That Wife (~zero work experience to software engineer in 6 weeks~ lololol).

        • Reply Helga March 19, 2015 at 3:30 pm

          I WILL CHECK THEM OUT. I keep ignoring That Wife’s thread.

          I almost bought the Kindle version of the ABM photo book but I found a free epub. Good thing I did because it was so useless and crappy.

    I got real tired of special snowflake “AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS _________ ??” tweets. It’s Twitter. You’re not the only one. Jeebus.

  • Reply Samantha Denise March 21, 2015 at 11:04 am

    Guilty of live tweeting TV series, but I don’t tweet about what just happened, I only tweet my feelings that moment like in HTGAWM’s intense plot twists. :)) My twitter pet-peeves are also narcissistic tweets and those who post about their everyday rants and lovelife problems “Nag-away nanaman kami ng bebe ko. huhu. #broken” :))))) (No offense to those who will see this comment!!)

  • Reply Steff March 21, 2015 at 6:14 pm

    HAHAHAHA! That is so true. Don’t forget people who have this crazy app to keep in track who unfollows them and automatically post them on his/her feed. Like wtf who has this amount of time to care whether or not someone unfollowed you. Also, people who do follows for follows.
