The other day, I saw the term "TDD" explained as "Twitter driven development", referring to the chance of "something happening" after sending a tweet to SE Inc. being much higher, compared to writing lengthy, polite question/answer requests here on MSE.
And answers or comments making such statements often see dozens of upvotes quickly. So there is a lot of agreement about that.
(Note: please don't get hung up on the term TDD-Twitter driven development. That is really just one example to point out the effectiveness of other "channels".)
Yet: it seems that nobody "walks that talk"?! When I turn to Twitter or Facebook, there is often zero community feedback to be found.
Example: the CEO tweeting about "the loop".
Only one comment on the same day, and just a handful on the next. And "like counts" all below 10 so far. Compare that to the first MSE question for that topic (4K views, tons and tons of answers, comments, votes).
Now: I am not at all suggesting that some shit-storm occurs on other media (seriously). That won't help.
But I am wondering: as said, we all (?) agree "other media are more effective", yet "silence" there.
Thus my question to the community: what are your specific reasons to not use such "alternative" ways to express your concerns?
(To be precise: I am not suggesting to abandon MSE and to form new communities elsewhere. I am merely curious why so many people say "X is helpful", but yet so few "do X").
