“Analysts”. Okey dokey.
I don’t pretend to assume that you’re talking about me—perhaps you are considering the initial video here.
So, let’s just go ahead and knock this out, just in case this is about my work.
I don’t aim for drama. I don’t like drama. It’s a waste of time. So, there’s that.
I do put a lot of detail and time into what I do, and if the rhythm/cadence of the tweets turns you off, that’s totally fair. It’s a lot. I get it.
Making assumptions about my intentions, none of which come close to the truth, isn’t great. Clicks. Likes. All that nonsense. It’s not who I am, it’s not what we do. I rarely hear that critique, because people know I’m not about that.
I actively ask people to simply unfollow me, kindly, if they don’t like what we do. I don’t go around blocking people. I’m not malicious in my critiques.
We have a wide reach, but I don’t obsess over that. In fact, if you talk to some of the people close to me in this business, I think you’ll learn that I’m quite the opposite of what you may think. I’m losing likes and clicks by not following a certain formula that guarantees cheap hits. That would be disingenuous, another thing that I can say that I am not.
I see this critique from time to time, not just from you, and I just thought I would take a minute to address it.
My account is what it is, it’s not for everybody, but there is a good deal of value in what we do. It’s honest and detailed, so I will always take time to address any perceived slight towards my approach in providing analysis.
Same goes for others out there doing good work. Again, as this has nothing to do with me, and it turns out I’m a complete narcissist, there’s one thing you can put on your bulletin board right there. But, never hurts to address it, just in case.
Anyway, I hope you have a nice night, and enjoy the season. I’m always around to chat on Twitter, if you can stomach it. Rough waters in them seas these days.
