I’m now at 326 and 244. So people are definitely doing a “follow-for-follow” thing. I see the logic of that, of course – if you want to use your account for marketing purposes only. Of course that makes them worthless as an actual “audience” or even for actual networking. Perhaps I should unsubscribe everybody and then resubscribe a small whitelist of sorts?
On the other hand, there may be software out there that actually does filtering of incoming tweets. I can’t imagine people who follow even half as many people as I actually read the tweets they get.
And hey, if you actually got here via Twitter – let me know – I’d like to personally thank you for using Twitter in a meaningful way
Update: Massive cull of accounts. Now only following 230 people… getting to a more manageable level.
Update: 219 and 242.
