I also check out what's trending every now and again out of curiosity. Of the people I know, this seems to be the least popular social account (even including Facebook which surprised me). This is fine by me. It's a nice break to come to what I've cultivated into a world of books.  As for posting on Twitter, I mainly like and retweet things on my personal account.
