Has anyone spotted it yet? Well you not likely to. I have recently discovered twitter put a limit on the number of people you can follow. It’s related to how many people follow you, I suspect it’s to cut down on bots. If you don’t know what a twitter bot is, you are very lucky, your life will not be enriched with the knowledge.
I recently hit my follow limit and decided to do a bit of a cull. With twitter I’m very nice if someone follows me then I follow them back. I also go hunting likely people who look interesting to follow.
Looking through my list of whom I follow I discovered some unscrupulous people follow you, which I then follow back only to have them unfollow me. I find this more than just a bit rude. So, I started a new policy of unfollowing people who are not following me, a bit petty you might think but I had hit my limit. I had made four exceptions to this rule J.K. Rowling, Tina Turner, Harper Collins and Danny Pierce. Despite them not following me I decided not to cull them.
It was also shock to find Olliy Murs and P Diddy have stopped following me, is this because I stopped clicking on the dodgy links they kept DM’ing me? I was devastated my dreams of celebrity endorsement went up in flames.
Now if you have read down this far (well done you reward yourself with cake) I have a confession to make. I included Danny’s name in my title to see if it would make his dad and a few of his cronies click on the link in Facebook and increase my traffic – low I know but its all about the numbers. Danny if you want to know is a boy I knew years ago who grew up to be a Vicar (who would of guessed) and a talented if yet undiscovered song writer who I still follow on twitter, despite the fact he doesn’t follow me.
How are other people finding twitter?
