Quite possibly true, but not because I don’t automatically Follow back everyone who Follows me on Twitter.
Here’s the deal:
Twitter is a micro-blog/news/info feed system where an individual person can Follow people or businesses that they support or find interesting.
What it IS NOT is a Contest. You should not be out to get as many Followers as possible or get on as many Lists as possible.
If someone Follows me I am highly appreciative and flattered, believe me.
However, whom I choose to Follow back is based on the same reasons you Followed me.
I Follow people or businesses who I find interesting, or who engage me in regular conversations.
Just because someone you find to be interesting doesn’t ‘return the favor’ its not personal.
If you take it personally if someone does not Follow you back then you will be disappointed a lot on Twitter. Harsh, but true.
If I do not Follow you back and you feel I should, tell me.
Let me know that you want to have conversations and you would like me to Follow in return.
