Taken Advtange Of?
I was surprised to discover today that I had been automatically tweeting out a couple of guys posts for the last several months.
There was no reciprocation from either of them. I had wondered about that in the past.
Now I know what was going on. They were ‘Atomic’ tribe owners.
I had thought I had joined their tribes to tweet each other’s posts on a the basis of mutual reciprocity.
I did not realize that I was in an Atomic tribe. These are run by triberrs who pay a monthly fee to create this type of tribe. People like me join when invited.
I was surprised to discover that I was in two such tribes today. I have since removed myself from both.
Not The Only One
Looks like I am not the only person to make this ‘mistake’. I saw a bonfire post from another person who thought identically to me.
If you haven’t checked your tribes out, you might want to do so right away. The tribe should say “standard” and NOT “automatic”. If you are in an “automatic” or “atomic” tribe, then you are simply tweeting out whatever that person posts automatically. They feel no special need to do the same for you…
