Having considered this for some time, taking into consideration the benefits, I’ve decided to take myself away from twitter altogether.
There are many reasons for this and also for announcing this on a blog which I’ll get to later.
My reasons behind me closing my account down mainly stem from my own personal use. I’ve used twitter for quite some years now, it’s about time I used the time away from it.
Over a period of time I’ve become increasingly annoyed with the bile & hatred being spouted not only by rival fans but also by my own teams fans. With this I mean the ever-increasing RT’s from Celtic fans showing what bile the other side are saying. IF I wanted to see that, I’d set myself a login to other clubs football forums. So again I’d rather take myself away altogether than having that on my time line.
What has recently annoyed me more and this is something I think all Celtic twitter members should look at is the growing resentment & antagonizing between Celtic fans on twitter. There are some now on twitter connected to certain online groups & supporter clubs that seem to think they’re above others & with this have caused some grief over recent times.
It should be recognised that we supporters of Celtic have come through serious times, a lot more serious than petty, ridiculous arguments on twitter & by standing side by side, it’s been at the benefit of Celtic. Don’t take this the wrong way, there is nothing wrong with debating each others opinions however we’ll get nowhere with stupid squabbles & arguments.
Twitter is a source which Celtic fans have used and can use for the future benefit of the club and we as supporters. Use it to unite not to divide.
With this though, again my reasons behind twitter are mostly personal. Through twitter I’ve picked up some valuable other sources via podcasts, Skype contacts which I’ll continue to use. I’ll continue to use TCN, MaleysBhoys & HomeBhoys etc to get my regular fix.
With those of you who know me from TCN, Skype etc – I’ll still be around so keep in touch.
Most will be aware that I also run the TicBet twitter account, this also will be changing hands & a further blog will also be released providing more details hopefully later today.
My Kraljski (BanTheRagsCSC) account will close later this afternoon, it’s been a blast, lots of laughs, rumours etc all will be remembered but it’s time to step back. Life for me is too short for me to be missing out on better things. Hail Hail & God Bless You All.
