Ice Cream Tweeting Versus Pie Tweeting

Last year, when I was in Toronto, I tweeted a picture of me eating pie in Kensington Village. It was one of my first tweets after a few weeks offline, and the tweet was unpopular.

“I follow you for news, not pie, and I tolerate your ice cream tweets”, said one regular reader.

The feedback to that tweet was overwhelmingly negative. I often thing about that one, and I understand much of the feedback was rooted in frustration that I wasn’t covering City Hall during that time period.

Interestingly, people were okay with my tweets about ice cream in Toronto.

This is really just a random personal blog post of something I’m thinking about.
