Now those that read my blog will know that I am a keen user of the micro-blogging wonder that is Twitter and recently I had a bit of an experiment with it!
So what’s it al about then, well to put it simply, I wanted to find out the power that is twitter and the many that will follow you for whatever reason they have.
With my twitter in hand, I joined TweetLater for auto following and auto messaging and activated both of the latter to see the effects and with a little posting to twitter via TweetDeck, my mobile phone and direct from my blog, I managed to peak out at around 1,582 followers, ok so it may not sound much to some of the big guns out there, but it’s a lot to me.
Continuing with my little experiment, I decided to remove the auto follow and auto DM from within TweetLater and did it make a difference, sure did, since doing this my followers have slowly fallen while fluctuating to the current total of 1,572. Only 10 I know, but since people find that you do not auto follow they do not follow you.
Strange though, because just how many people can you follow or should that be, keep up with, I can’t keep a conversation going with over 1,500 tweeters, but twitter is great for getting the word out for your blog, products etc.
But personally I love to tweet and find it an honour when some finds my tweets interesting enough to follow me, so to those that do follow me, many, many thanks.
My advice, don’t auto follow or auto DM people don’t like, just let your followers build in a natural way
