Twitter Follower Milestone

Twitter has a limit to the number of people you can follow.  That number is 2,000, unless the number of followers that you have is within 10%.  Well, my follower count just passed 2,000.

I currently have 2,002 followers and I follow 2,051.  How did I do it?  Quite easily, actually.  I used justunfollow, a service that allows you to copy followers from others, see who’s reliable at following you back, and see who hasn’t been updating in a long time.

Well, I don’t copy followers.  I don’t like to do that.  I do check other popular Twitter users’ followers and see who looks interesting for me to follow.  So, I follow those people, and hope they follow back.  Keep in mind that I only follow those I’m interested in.  I don’t just follow whoever.  If someone follows me, I don’t necessarily follow back unless I’m interested in that person.

I also go through who I’m following to see who hasn’t updated in a long time. If their account has been silent for more than 6 months, I just unfollow them.  No need to have dead accounts wasting space.  It’s the people I follow that need to be monitored.  They don’t have to follow me back, just as long as they are actually updating.

I value my followers.  I want to provide something they can enjoy reading.  If you want to follow me, my Twitter account is right here.  I can’t guarantee I’ll follow back, but if your interests are similar to mine, there’s a great chance I will follow back.  If you’re a writer, I’ll definitely follow back.

Well, thanks to everyone who does follow me.  You’re all appreciated, and if you interact with me on Twitter, I will always reply.
