Instagram has been a real pain in the backside really. Engagement has been decreasing day after day and it’s becoming so hard to figure out if the person who has just followed you will unfollow a few hours later. On the other hand, there’s Twitter. The social media platform that hardly disappoints.
So here are the few reasons to why i prefer Twitter over Instagram:
- It’s easier to connect with other people. I don’t know if it’s just me, but i find it so hard to connect with other bloggers via Instagram! I know that there’s an option of commenting on someones picture and direct messaging them, however a lot of people don’t respond on Instagram which puts me off completely.
- You get an insight into that persons life rather than a “perfect” theme. It’s so easy to fall into the social media trap of believing someone is living a perfect life just because they have a perfect theme.However, on Twitter, it’s always nice to see a fellow blogger go on a rant about something they didn’t like or a subject they’re passionate about and naturally makes me feel like i know them better.
- It’s easy to find similar people to you. Hashtags play a big part in this. I have met so many new bloggers because of hashtags like #bbloggers and have come across amazing blog posts. However on Instagram, even when you do use hashtags, they aren’t as helpful as they should be. Sometimes you come across so many irrelevant pictures that have the hashtag #makeup when in fact the picture is of an apple. I get that beauty and makeup posts get a lot of likes, but seriously?
