I said right from the outset I wanted to learn, and I just learned another molecule of Twitterite: followers are pouring in at an alarming rate, and I don’t think it’s because of my witty prose.
So far I have noticed three species:
- the people I know – I follow those regardless because I know them.
- the people I don’t know but behave like humans
- the human bookmarks – litter my feed with “I like this, I like that”. Nothing wrong with tweeting about something you think worthy of consideration, but not 25 times a day
- the silent Bobs – follow everybody, but contribute nothing
As a rule I follow everybody that follows me, but after a few days, I can the #3 and the #4 to kep my feed reasonably clean and interesting.
