Paper.li was your name mentioned in a tweet on my time line or someone else’s with paper.li ?

***UPDATE***

You can go to:

http://paper.li/stop-mentions.html so your name won’t be mentioned.

Many people have asked me why their name is mentioned in a tweet on my time line with paper.li

Some are nice, some are just confused as to why I would mention them (which is understandable) and some are just plain fucking rude about it.

SO I AM HERE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS!!

If you are reading this page and one of your followers subscribed to paper.li as well, if you see someone getting shitty with a person b/c their name was mentioned or the person just wasn’t sure, feel free to RT this to those people.

I signed up with paper.li a while ago because I like the format. I like to read blogs and it allows you to filter blogs you do and don’t like (some times it doesn’t work out that way)  and it combines it to one paper. The best part is, it does it everyday on it’s own.Today was my first time going behind the scenes in a long while, I only went behind the scenes to do this post.

Here is an screen shot of the edition today.

HOW PAPER.LI WORKS

I set up two papers, I did that because I selected different categories and wanted to see the difference of the two, what wouldn’t or wouldn’t post etc.

What do I mean by categories? (Yes, this is important, this might be why you get mentioned)

Paper.li let’s you select categories from

  • Google Plus
  • Twitter
  • Face Book
  • RSS Feeds
  • You Tube

Here is an example of some feeds I subscribed: 

(I am showing you this because they happen to be people I follow. (Yes Stoopidhousewives.com I have you filtered in as well, no matter how mad you are at us for what ever reason, some of us still like YOUR blog, not you, but your blog HON!) <– SH hates to be called “hon”

One of the options is “Promotion”  See below where I put the RED BOX

NOTICE HOW IT DOESN’T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT NAMES? 

Therefore, I can not help if it tweets YOUR NAME! 

  • I don’t know how it picks your name(s)
  • I don’t know if it goes by what you tweet, ex: as you saw, Tamara Tattles one of the RSS, so maybe you tweeted an article from her, I don’t know.  They let you pick up to 25 caterorgies, so do don’t tweet me and say you don’t associate with the people in the shot above, it’s just an example. (Yes, the 3 listed are filtered to show in my paper.li )
  • I don’t know if it goes by the people I follow or who my followers follow.
  • I DON’T KNOW HOW IT PICKS NAMES
  • I DON’T KNOW HOW IT PICKS NAMES
  • I DON’T KNOW HOW IT PICKS NAMES

As you will see from the screen shot below, paper.li tweets the posts, I DO NOT!
SEE THE RED CIRCLE on both tweets.


Notice on the tweet that mentions the paper is out in the RED CIRCLE it says via paper.li? That is because PAPER.LI tweeted it! Notice the tweet where I tweeted, “here we go”, in theRED CIRCLE, it says, “via Seesmic” THAT IS BECAUSE IT WAS ME WHO TWEETED IT AND I USE SEESMIC, the web or Uber Social to tweet with.  In this case, I was using seesmic.

(Yes I did tweet, “Here we go” a few times then delete b/c I was trying to match up the size of the paper.li tweet. )

DOES IT BOTHER YOU THAT IT MENTIONS YOUR NAME?

HOPEFULLY by now you can see that  I don’t choose to mention “you” in my “little paper” as some call it..  We are all on a Social Network. Twitter even has bots of it’s own. One day I was having a conversation and the Spell bot came up, b/c I wasn’t sure if I had the right spelling and I did one these (sp) indicating, I was acknowledging I was spelling the word wrong or wasn’t sure that I had the right spelling. I blurred out the tweet, if you want to see what it said you can look HERE lol, you will see why. It just didn’t look right if I only showed that tweet. (WARNING: SENSE OF HUMOR REQUIRED TO LOOK)

(NO, I had not followed the bot until it found me b/c I thought it was funny)

What I recommend to anyone that gets mentions from people like my self who sign up for paper.li 
is to either or do all if it bothers you;

  • Find a twitter app that has the “Mute” feature. (By the way, twitter is now okay with aps using the feature)
  • Realize that that the person isn’t doing it to piss you off, it may have something to do with a article that you recently tweeted which happens to be in that person’s paper.li and you may associate with person or someone connected to the site.
  • Block the person! Twitter has it now who ever you block you shouldn’t be able to see their tweets.
  • Lock your account. We are on Twitter which is apart of Social Media. You may be talking about a subject that someone else is interested in and a COMPLETE STRANGER just might jump in the conversation. Imagine that! Isn’t that how you met your followers that you have now? ( Yes, there are jack asses on twitter, one jack hole that I know of gets mad if someone @’s her that she doesn’t know)
  • Get OVER IT!

I digress at this point. There is no other way I can explain it. At this point, it’s not my problem if people get up set either, it’s that person'(s) problem if they are upset, not mine.

If you are reading this page and one of your followers subscribed to paper.li as well, if you see someone getting shitty with a person b/c their name was mentioned or the person just wasn’t sure, feel free to RT this to those people.
