Does A Good Article Help To Increase Your Twitter Followers?

I don’t have much Twitter followers. Like many others, I’m not interested in buying any fake followers. The reason since I officially joined Twitter on July 2011, the growing of my followers has been very slow with only 1,400 followers.

I’m very proud of all my followers, from all walks of life, including the great writer Joel Friedlander, CNN’s Jim Clancy, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Her Majesty Koningin Mathilde (The Queen of Belgium.)

The landscape of the media is gradually changing, as the reading standard on social platforms gradually declines too. I have written hundreds of articles, but none has proved to be a masterpiece to me, until January 28, 2016 after posting an article captioned

“Spend Your Money On Bread And Water Not Sickness”

https://joelsavage1.wordpress.com/2016/01/28/spend-your-money-on-bread-and-water-not-sickness/

It seems the article caught the attention of the right readers at the right time. It suddenly generated Tweets, followed by re-tweets, on and on, increasing my Twitter followers significantly from 1,400 to 2,000. I followed everyone that follows me, because that’s the only way to thank them and show my appreciation.

Writing is creative and interesting, yet very tough. I am therefore glad to see the progress of what I do in different ways.

10 Reasons After 14 Years In Belgium With Eight books, I’m Still Unknown Author

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The author and writer Joel Savage

  • I’m the only black journalist in Belgium, who has written eight books so far, none of their journalists have achieved that.

 

  • They know I use a dictionary the word ‘Compromise’ can’t be found and I’m not afraid of anyone. I can easily tell both the president and the labourer, if they lack wisdom and intelligence.

 

  • They thought I came to Belgium to praise their quality chocolates and beers, I’m not alcoholic, my mind is therefore clear  enough to speak against the horrible crimes they committed in Africa, during the colonial era.

 

  • I’m the only black journalist who has been brave enough to attack the Belgium government, with series of articles, to break down all the statues of Leopold and change the name of the streets named after him, because Leopold II was a criminal. If there is no statue of Hitler for killing six million Jews, there shouldn’t be any statue of Leopold. He killed and maimed over ten million Africans, including children in Congo.

 

  • I made a bitter poem called “Belgium Hunted’ against the country, which can be read beneath.

 

  • I am the only African journalist without fear, went to the notorious Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp, to investigate the high abnormal death rate of Africans. I published the investigation in one of my books, about my bitter experience in Antwerp: ‘Little Boygium-Wonderful Experience.’ I answered the call of the African community in Antwerp, to do that investigation because African patients with common leg injury don’t come back alive after consultation. It was obvious some doctors were killing for body organs, because I saw a demonstration of Albanians near the hospital couple of years ago, before my investigation, accusing the hospital of the same charges.

 

  • My book ‘Little Boygium-Wonderful Experience’ exposed them and made the hospital one of the safest hospitals in Antwerp today. How do you expect them to love or like me?

 

  • I have changed the landscape of journalism in Belgium, especially in Antwerp, by openly speaking over discrimination, racism and poor integration. I wrote an article over Ebola captioned ‘Dutch Professor Johan Van Dongen challenges Belgian Professor Van Der Groene over the origins of Aids and Ebola and the link of the article miraculously disappeared from the web pages of Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper. That means my articles are physically and psychologically torturing them.

 

  • I forced a Belgian landlord who stole my money and also from other tenants to sell his house, because I warned those looking for accommodation, especially foreigners, with notice pasted all over his house that he is a thief. He steals from those he rents his house to. Once while pasting a fresh notice on the window, I saw a police van occupied by two policemen behind me, they stopped and read it, without any question, they moved away. They did the right thing.

 

They know I speak the truth, like the Dutch author, scientist and micro-surgeon, Professor Johan Van Dongen, the reason both of us don’t have friends. Those who speak the truth have no friends, because the only friend ‘Truth’ has is God.’

Information And Communications Technology: The Key To Africa’s Development And Business Growth?

ICT 1

Gone are the days when due to lack of modern technology, global businesses encounter impediments, today Internet Global System of Mobile Telecommunication and Satellite  Communication Technologies impact on Africa is enormous, not only in business, but  improving  health of individuals, education and communities.

There is no doubt that Africa is gradually making good use of the fresh demonstration of modern technology and rubbing shoulders with the advanced world. The internet and mobile phones are transforming the development landscape in Africa, making business smooth to run, profitable, easy communication and enhancing the health, educational and economic sectors.

The breakthrough of ICT facilities can’t be denied. The internet has brought commercial success to businesses operated on large and medium scale. The best of it all is reducing labour needed to achieve the same amount of work and above all paving the way for many to engage in education as highly trained ICT specialists.

The ICT is providing economic opportunities to both urban and rural area, playing a significant role in poverty alleviation. In recent years information and communication technologies (ICTs) have been deployed in numerous initiatives in rural communities in developing countries, bringing much developments to both the health and educational sectors. Everyone is trying to establish small scale business or go to school.

The success of ICT facilities in business, education, banking and health developments, can be seen in almost every African country, including Malawi, Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It has been acknowledged by international entrepreneurs that development of Information and Communication Technology are playing crucial role in Africa’s development in the economic, health and educational sectors.

Not everything glitters is gold. Africa is struggling in development. According to the World Bank, 2.8 billion people live on less than US$2 per day, and 1.2 billion or one-fifth of the world’s population live on less than US$1 per day. That means many are still trapped in poverty, been deprived of access to essential assets and opportunities such as education, healthcare and employment, but there is hope that Africa will gradually crawl out of poverty as technology advances and business flourishes.

Edge Of The World: A Daniel’s Fork Short Story

Ten years before William Evers came to Daniel’s Fork, he was a different man. In this short story, we find him at the wilderness of the eastern lands of North America, battling ‘wilders’ and fighting his way out of the bleak emotional landscape that a devastating loss has left in his heart.

We meet his beloved companions, Gabby and Jonas, young warriors following blindly where William leads, driven only by their unconditional love and loyalty. And finally, we see the entire family come together as they will be years later in Daniel’s Fork. Be warned: the story does contain strong sexual content not suitable to younger readers and those adults who object to such content. It is approx. 27 pages long.

It may be easily read in one hour. If you have read Daniel’s Fork, the characters will be familiar. This story, however, stands alone, and is a great introduction to the Daniel’s Fork series and a way to try the author’s style at no cost to you. The main focus of the story is the companions, especially Gabby.

A truer picture of the seemingly vapid beauty emerges which shows she is anything but trivial. The relationship between the companions takes on its defining form, that of a tightly bound group with few personal boundaries.
