Things That Turn Me Off Following Back On Twitter
Just a quick post to tell you a few reasons why i may not have followed you back on twitter! Now apart from some of the obvious reasons such as "Dick Pics" and general pics of naked people on your timeline,i always have a look at your twitter feed and see what you have been saying,are you interactive with your followers or are you just an account that is looking to increase your follower count.
If i see that you are an account that has followed "797" people today,for me you are someone that is only interested in increasing your follower account and i will very rarely follow back as i know that i will have no interaction with you at all! It is also possible that as soon as i do follow,i will immediately be Muted by you along with hundreds of others that i would think that you have on mute!
If you are an account that just constantly just churns out sayings and quotes,all of the same from so many different accounts,this is of no interest to me at all and i will not follow back!
If you are an account that offers us to "Buy Followers",i will never ever follow you back and will immediately block you.I dont know who is worse,the account that sells followers or the silly people who actually pay money for them!
If your account is locked (private),it puts me in a position where i cannot see your tweets and your timeline so i do be nervous about following back so i generally dont!
If you are an account that has an egg as it's profile pic,again i dont feel comfortable in following back but it may depend on what is on your timeline!
I guess what i am saying is that i like to be followed for me and my tweets and then possible interaction at some stage on twitter,not for the sake of increasing follower numbers which are of no significance to me as i am not concerned about my numbers. I do realise that this will not always be the case as twitter is a platform to promote yourself and your business as well as all other forms of everything else associated with social media!
While i am here,i may as well mention certain things that annoy me after i have followed an account back! The first and most annoying is when you get an automated DM saying thank you for the follow,please follow my blog,instagram,my life etc. These are so horrible,thoughtless and impersonal and can sometimes lead to an unfollow.Please people who do this,STOP as everyone hates this!
Another thing i do not like are DM's to my twitter as i am not a big fan of these but only when they are from people who are asking me all about myself,looking for too much information and this generally scares me! I dont like anyone asking me for pics of myself,where i work and if i am single! Guys,there are dating sites out there if you are looking for this sort of thing and if i was,i would be on one of them so please dont ask me for pictures,my phone number,where i work etc as this really scares me!
I do get private messages from some accounts asking me about my thoughts on fpl and for this,i am kinda honoured and proud that some people do ask me about this but again,i do draw the line when the conversation drifts away from fpl! Someone recently called me a "c**t" in a DM after havin a chat about fpl which them moved off the subject! Again these sort of things and people scare me!
Also i have to mention that if you have followed me,i do not always follow back immediately,sometimes your follow may have got lost in my feed and i do appologise if this is the case but when i have interaction with someone that i then realise follows me,i can then have a look at your TL and return the follow. And also i noticed that the longer that someone has followed me without my follow back,it does suggest that this person has followed me for me and my tweets rather than just looking for a follow back so thank you!
I hope this post has made sence and thank you for reading,i really appreciate it alot.I always try and support as many people as i possibly can as i feel that even a blog comment can cheer someone up so i do my best! I will however say now that i am disappointed in some people who say they support me but yet never read anything i write and i would bet that even if i mentioned names here,they would never even know as they will not be reading this post! I understand that's how it goes and that's life,i dont expect anyone to have read this or even comment but on the plus side,i do know who my genuine real friends and the people who really support me are and you people are truly amazing.
I would absolutely love to know who has actually read this post as my posts might get alot of views but not too many comments so if possible could you please comment or even give it a like on twitter as it will show me who you amazing people are,
thanks for reading,
