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.
