I’ve long wondered about why people follow me on Twitter.
Weirder still, is the culture of “follow back.”
You know what I mean, that “follow me, I follow you” shit. It’s garbage. It’s for follower counters.
I follow people who help me. It ain’t a favour to them. I learn from these people. They share stuff I like and find relevant to my existence. If someone follows me and I see that they tweet about needle pointing, I won’t follow back, because I don’t give a shit about needles or points.
I unfollow people who tweet overly self promotory stuff, try to sell me too hard or who I made a mistake about (I thought it was PR they were concerned about but it is really needle pointing).
Why do you follow people on Twitter? Do you follow back immediately? Why do you unfollow?
