Twitter Follow Tips

Twitter Follow With Care -Don’t Always Rely on Automation

Do you REALLY know who you are following on Twitter?  I would venture to guess that most of us don’t know everyone we follow but it’s very important that we pay attention to that.  If you use any type of automated follow software be cautious.  When someone follows you and you have auto follow in place you really have no clue WHO you are following back but your followers sure will.

Imagine the surprise of those who might just decide to take a peek at your main Twitter profile page to see who you follow.  They can click on all of those people you follow and if you’re not careful in who you choose to follow they very well might find something that will turn them off immediately and lose all respect for you.

When you follow someone on Twitter, they get an email with a few stats that list some of your current followers.  I have seen tasteless avatars and Twitter handles in these emails not to mention outrageous profile tweets when clicking through to what I think might be a potential new Twitter ‘friend’.  In fact I just got one today. This person had a raunchy avatar and unmentionable tweets so I blocked the user immediately and they can no longer be seen on the list of people that follow me, thank goodness.

Sure it can take time to go through and screen followers but to me it’s time well spent.  I would much rather be cautious and not offend anyone.  Sure some will slip through the cracks at times but do the best you can and you will truly stand out from the rest.

*Note*  Most social media managers use automated follow software and we have personally chosen not to use automation unless we feel that it will benefit our clients and/or it’s something they choose.  We believe that it’s all about quality not quantity.
