I took a week off from Twitter last week, only to return to a timeline that grossed me out. It wasn’t anything specifically gross or overly gross, or about any specific tweeter. It was just a general feeling.
I tweet about it.
Then, 3 days ago, I actually did unfollow everyone. All 69 accounts I once followed were off my timeline. I was down to zero.
Some of the people I’d been following notice right away that they’d been unfollowed. Some of them let me know, and some of them didn’t. I even had some people unfollow me back as a result.
Right away Twitter suggested “some people you might enjoy following,” and gave me Barack Obama and Zap2it and Rachel Reilly. What a combination. I’ve never followed any of those three before, and I passed on the opportunity this time.
So I’ll ask you all:
Do you follow Barack Obama or Zap2it or Rachel Reilly? Any of you follow all three of them?
I should probably start following people again on Twitter. At some point. I mean, who does this anyway…following zero people on Twitter?
