We’ve written about a lot of different Twitter personality types over the years, but this particular list makes my skin crawl more than any of the others. I’m not saying I’m a perfect tweeter or anything, far from it, but these are the kind of people who make you want to reach through your computer screen and strangle their necks. They are the pompous, know-it-all, rude tech industry tweeters who think they are better than everyone. Yikes, did I just type that?
Nah, all joking aside, we all follow people like this on Twitter, and quite honestly, if everyone on Twitter was humble and polite, it wouldn’t be near as entertaining of a place to hang out. People in the tech industry (cough, cough) are often times loners, and they don’t mean to come across as rude, they just do every now and then. They seem to excel at rubbing people the wrong way.
This infographic called The Tech Industry’s Most Obnoxious Tweeters, by Conduit, lists 11 different tech industry Twitter personality types. If you read down the list, it will make you laugh out loud, or at least it made me do that. We all know people who fit into each one of these categories, and you may have seen some tweets that look very similar to these in your Twitter stream.
You might even find that you are one of these tech industry types yourself. That’s okay, whether you are a wannabe founder, a tech noob or even a tech jerk, we still appreciate all that you bring to the tech industry (even if it’s just some laughable tweets). The best part of this infographic is reading the Tweetlations. Now you’ll know how to interpret those tweets next time you see them. Brilliant.
