For those of you who don’t know, I’m obsessed with Twitter. In fact, I love it so much that I wrote a post about the awesomeness of twitter.
But sadly, using Twitter is not all happiness and rainbows and butterflies all the time.
Lately, I have been using justunfollow.com for complicated reasons (high five for those who can figure out why!) and I’ve been noticing this trend. To make a long story short, I’ve been noticing that people have been following me for let’s say, sometime around a week, and then unfollowing me for about a week, and then refollowing me again. To make it worse, sometimes it’s authors who do this. It’s not only me that this happens to, but to others as well.
I will say this straight-up: I do not do follow for follow on twitter or on any social media. If you want me to follow you back, the simple solution is to get to know me. Talk to me often so I get to know your face, your personality, etc. Let me know you well enough or at least recognize who you are to follow you.
How about you? Does this unfollowing-refollowing problem ever happen to you and are you annoyed by it or do you just ignore it?
