In recent months, especially since the launch of my Pluralsight courses, I’ve been more active on Twitter (By “active” I mean I log in once or twice a week). During this short period, I’ve made a few passing observations about this strange place called Twitter:
1. “A lot of people follow me for a few days then unfollow me if I don’t follow them back”
There are so many things wrong with this. Following someone just so they’ll follow you back is selfish. It’s pretty obvious these folks are just using others to increase their follower count. They follow 5,000 people and have 4,999 people following them. Yeah, not impressed. Seeing this doesn’t make me think that person is influential. It makes me think they’re obsessive.
