Why are some people like this? Don't they understand that the reason most people follow them is for their art? What's difficult about not cluttering your feed?

>> No.6847751

Twitter is not a gallery. They are using Twitter for its intended purpose. If you want to see their art go to their website/pixiv. If (you) try hard by only posting art on a twitter account then you’re missing the point.

I'll agree with the rest, but they can't even shoot the shit with people? Just scroll past text only posts in your feed.

I agree, fucking hate when people I follow post irrelevant stuff.
no, if you're an artist, and you're using a social media to build a following, which is art, not random memes, not political opinions. It would be like following someone for their posts about anthropology and randomly receiving furry porn on your timeline.

Congrats, that’s the vast majority of jp or any asian artist. Not even western artist you shitters would bitch about would post this much irrelevant shit.

>> No.6847878

So what? Doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't use it like that, nothing is stopping you to only post videos, nor are you forced to spew stupid opinions. The only reason artists use Twitter is cause it's the only big enough social that doesn't ban porn and compresses images too much. I only follow artists that only post their art, they never get into any drama, and are respectful to their followers, my timeline is clean, while still being able to find new artists through retweets or comments.

>> No.6847922

You’re given a platform to shoot the shit and be personal while sharing any kind of shit doodle you want. And yet you try to make it clean like a baby’s rear end despite the other services providing this for you. You sound like a neutered individual, so you do you I guess.

>> No.6847924

If that was its "intended purpose" why did they add an alghoritmic timeline that 90% only shows relevant content and not the random garbage they post? Because its "intended use" is to post content that drives engagement, which usually isn't that random picture you took at a restaurant, but art (or whatever type of content people follow you). If I wanted to see pics of food, I'd follow a food photographer, not an artist.

>> No.6847936

Hundreds if not thousands of thematic accounts that only post relevant content and gain even millions of followers, but somehow I'm in the wrong for wanting consistency in my timeline.

Would you follow a meme account, or a game journalist, that randomly shares their opinion on Guatemalan politics, and retweets ranging from ancient aliens conspiracy to scat porn? Like I said, if you are trying to build a following, treat your followers with respect and don't litter their timeline using your business account as if it was your personal one.

Retard. Timeline moves. Gallery doesn’t. Get it in your monkey brain. Last reply to this dumb thread.

>> No.6847957

So you're telling me that journalists use Twitter as if it was a gallery because they only post relevant content? Oh nooo, so that means the majority of big accounts all do that, what a shame, almost as if that was the best way to use the platform and only unprofessional retards litter their "gallery" with irrelevant shit.

>> No.6847966

I'll message every artist I follow to warn them that they are using Twitter wrong and should instead post whatever shit comes to their mind, and clutter their profile, even if it displeases their following. I wonder how they managed to grow their account until now...

using xitter as intended is a major red flag that someone has high schooler brain damage he never grew out of; artists who can't control themselves and post more e-junk than work should be bookmarked and not followed

>> No.6847989

By this reasoning it would be impossible to lose followers, why would there even be an unfollow button in the first place? If you see something you don't like, or you're not interested in your feed, (that you could easily avoid seeing again by unfollowing) just scroll past, it's not like you should have any agency over what type of content you want to see.

OP struck a nerve on the ego driven "artists" in this shitty ass place. I knew your guys' egos were big, but I didn't know it was that bad.

You are not important and easily replaceable, now go and draw cute girls so I can like them and stop posting about your commie dreamland plans.

It means you soil the concept of art by putting your face and feelings in front of it. Instead of being a conduit to art, you are just using it to get attention.

There should be a hell for people like that.

Yes, because it will be a retard 99% of the time.

>you ironically sound like a twittard that can't separate art from artist

I can, but it still lead to situations like OP just said, where I can't appreciate the art because of 90 trillion lines of goop being spammed. It also turns this board from a place to learn and talk about art to the PYWfiesta that it is.

if 99% of the people you interact with in some way are retarded, maybe it's actually you that's the retard?

I am retarded, doesn't mean the other 99% are also not retarded. The difference between me and you is that I know I am an imbecile. I also know no one gives a fuck about my opinions, and that's why I only post on this garbage anonymous board, so I can just vent into the void with other retards.

>never grow because the people you want to attract that will support your art will do it because it supports you, as the internet persona you're portraying, not because of your art
Only other artist give a shit about the art, but artist aren't the ones who might potentially give you money.

If you see all the big accounts, they're not followed for their art, their art is secondary to whatever else they might do i.e.
>drama and circlejerking
Or alternatively just baiting random people to ratio them since the average cattle are so miserable and irl losers they need a win really, really fucking bad at the cost of making themselves a lolcow.
You can see this type of dynamic with irl streamers who will do anything for money and clout like the npc tiktokers; the point of those things are not the "entertainment" but the people being at the mercy and seeking the approval of the viewers who do not have the best intentions in mind.

Unless we're talking the anime fotm generic lewd slop where kids and coomers spam thirsty comments and with most followers being 3rd world chinese following every nsfw artist to steal their shit and print it on merch to sell it to unknowing normies or others who give even less of a shit.

tldr it's all fake and gay

>> No.6851674

I tend to agree, I follow a page for a certain type of content, and if it posts something else I'm often tempted to unfollow, this doesn't apply only to artist. It's the reason why a lot of people create "spam accounts" if they really need to spam unrelated content so much, and at least they avoid polluting their main account.
