I follow about 250 people on Twitter. Most of them are sites I like, inspirational quote things, and a few friends I've met over the years. I have about 1000 followers because of various websites I've joined that offer free followers. Of those 1000 followers, I don't think any of them actually notice me or my posts, because hardly anyone actually talks to me, clicks links that I post.. or anything like that.
The more people I follow, the fewer I actually see. Good friends that I'm actually interested in seeing seem to get lost amongst the others who tweet something different every 2 seconds.
I'm thinking of cleaning up the Twitter account, unfollowing those I'm really not interested in and only keeping those that I want to see.
But it made me wonder about those who follow thousands of people themselves.. how do they keep up? Don't the good tweets get lost amongst the thousands of other tweets that are pointless?
How many people do you follow? Is it too much, or not enough or just right?
