    Yeah, that’s the nice thing about twitter, you don’t have to follow back if you don’t want 🙂 I very much respect my twitter followers time and do not use it to spam. If what I’m working on happens to come up in conversation, so be it, but I do not blatantly spam.

    Thanks for this post.

  3. Great post. I’ve been thinking a lot about twitter this week. I am mostly there to watch, learn and listen. I post three or four times a day. With a single exception, no one has yet answered a question, or commented on a post of mine, nor replied to replies I’ve made to their questions or comments. I think this is a necessary stage, but it is a fad. I suspect those who are using twitter to sell products or services will quickly move on to other pursuits. As it is, I feel like I am at a city market, where everyone is shouting, hawking, and showing their ideas and products… but there are only merchants in the crowd. No one is listening, let alone buying.

    Jeff – you are the primer of decent Twitterer:)

    David- Unfortunately, Twitter had become mainstream micro-tool for as you’ve described marketars and ‘social media strategists“ in desperate need to draw attention to their products or web sites offering easy-earned money. This is normal to expect in the current economic and social background. Twitter is open market place indeed and it’s up to you who’ll you follow and interact with. Expect that some people will not reply to your questions, this is how it goes as well as in analogue life.

    ‘you are who you’re following’ is genius, but now you are who follows you . . . of course you’ve seen the ‘twitter word cloud’ a sort of digi-poetic rendering of extracts from your follower’s profiles. with that, mr. twitter, etc., twitter itself is the most guilty of robotic ‘interaction’ you’re talking about. i think these ‘services’ enable desperate marketers and strategists.

  6. I laughed at „you are who you follow.“ I think an awful lot of marketing is a race for lottery tickets. Yes, people do need to find out about products and services; yes, there are ways to tell people about your products and services.

    Maybe the real secret is: you are how you follow. Do you follow people only to try and sell them things, with no idea of what they want or need? You’re like the sweaty person at an in-person event, relentlessly „networking“ by shoving your business card and your resume at anyone who’s better dressed than you are.

    I hope you find that I am following you appropriately.
