With all my "inbound marketing" or whatever it is called, I remembered I had more Twitter accounts lying around so maybe I should start using them.
Some stats of their current state:
A long time ago I created these accounts and started to use them, but for a long time I had a problem. I could be logged in to only one Twitter account at a time in my browser and so switching between accounts was too time-consuming to actively use all of them.
For some time I was using 3 browser to be logged in 3 Twitter accounts and you can see besides the two that I kept active, the PerlMaven account also had many Tweets and a few followers.
Having 3 browsers was also a bit too much investment but at one point I encountered the Buffer service that allows one to schedule posts ahead of time. From that point I was logged in to my szabgab directly in my main browser and I used Buffer to post on my perlweekly account. That worked out quite well as I could post the links in one batch but they would be published with an interval of a few hours.
Then in June 2019 Twitter added account switching capabilities to its web interface.
What can I say, I am a slow move so I've started to use this feature only a few weeks ago. First I only logged in to the Perl Weekly account that allowed me to start "like"-ing and re-sharing posts made by other Perl-related accounts I was following.
Then today I made another step logging in to my other two accounts. The Perl Maven had more than 500 follower, but the
I don't know if using these account to share code-snippets like I do on my LinkedIn pages makes sense or not, but I'll give it a try.
I've started to post images of code-snippets with a few words about them and a link to the source.
Let's see how does that work out.
BTW apparently I joined Twitter more than 11 years ago.
