I have been trying to increase my twitter followers and have been going through lots and lots of users. I try to choose readers and writers (since writers are also readers). But once in a while I get someone following me who is obviously just selling something. I mean we are all 'selling' something but these are the ones who are only selling. You know what I mean. I don't follow back but twice now I've given in. I mean one had over 25,000 followers and one had over 100,000 followers. And they are following me. How can I resist that? And it doesn't seen like they are dropping people. They follow almost as many as are following them. I mean, if they retweet me even once, that's a lot of publicity.
So what's your opinion on these twitterers. Am I desperate or smart? What do you do?
And can anyone explain how you are following 900 people, have a couple following you and have just 1 tweet?
