I have two hubs in support of David de Rothschild, who is currently out at sea on his Plastiki expedition. Anyway the other day I was talking to my friend Jill, who had come to stay in Tenerife and look after my cat for a week while I took a brief holiday back to Wales. I told her about my hubs about David and how I intended to see if I could personally contact him when he finishes his expedition to raise awareness about recycling and the pollution of the oceans with plastic.
Imagine my surprise to find that when we got back to my apartment when I logged into my email box I found an alert from Twitter to say that David de Rothschild is following you!
Naturally I am following him back! The synchronicity of this was amazing and wouldn't it be equally amazing if he has been reading what I had posted on here?
No that would not be very great considering that the Rothschilds are your slave owner. They own the banks that we will always be in debt to no matter what. But on the flip side if he is a fan of your work maybe you will be able to get some vital information from him if you can actually keep in contact. That is a huge opportunity for either good or evil to come your way. It's all on how you take it.
Is this the same Rothchilds who were merchants of wines?
If you wrote a hub and posted it on twitter then he must have seen it to follow you.
Anyone who does something to clean our environment must be a great guy. Keep it up.
Well I think it's pretty darn cool and if he can help bring awareness about recycling and pollution in the oceans - all the better!
I would be as excited as anything if David de Rothschild was following me on twitter.
I've read both the hubs,I don't think I would be as good a person as he seems to be if I had his wealth, I would probably be sitting back and over consuming!
Here in Australia we have a radio commentator called Alan Jones whose lack of manners I would rate on a par with Alex Jones. He has been responsible for some good things but will not listen to and derides people who disagree with him. Nasty!
Thank you, repstrydiefly, ngureco, Aqua, rmcrayne, Linda H, Misha and dutchman1951, for your comments!

In one of my many hubs about adventurer and author David de Rothschild someone who read it actually posted a comment claiming that I am David and am playing mind games here by pretending to be Bard of Ely! I never ever thought that the day would arrive that someone would think I was a member of...

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

I have some experience with this. I find blocking people to be no fun. The guys never stop following, but I have noticed a decline in the girl followers. Must be saying some offensive stuff I guess. I'd like to make a joke out of it here.

I've had twitter for a while. I find it very spammy, so don't really read it. I post my hubs there & the occasional article I like. I have approx 300 followers (many are writers), yet in my traffic, I have very rarely had a visitor from twitter. Do the backlinks count for...

I pretty much thought that this went out of fashon about 6 or 7 years ago. However over the last week, I have seen several people operate on the basis that if they add you, then you must add them. Someone has just also written that in their profile - that s/he will add whoever adds him/her.So...
