I keep getting followed by people, who then unfollow me a week later because I haven’t followed them back.
To make things easier on their broken little unfollowing hearts, I thought I’d share my personal Twitter follow back etiquette (or lack thereof) in the form of a little listicle. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.
1. Be interesting
First off, just cause I seem interesting to you, that does not mean you are interesting to me. I follow plenty of people who don’t follow me back because I’m nobody, apparently you are nobodier, get over it.
2. Be interesting
Fill out your profile! An empty profile is bad, but lame shit that everybody has on their profile won’t cut it either. I don’t need to follow anybody who’s a marketing ‘guru’ or social media ‘expert’. And I really don’t need to follow any ‘proud’ mom’s or dad’s. You’re all the same color of douche to me.
3. Be interesting
Tweet interesting shit! I love 9gag as much as the next girl, but I do not need to see your unoriginal ass reposting those jokes on Twitter. And if you’re Dutch: poorly translated jokes aren’t welcome either.
4. Be interesting
Stop talking about the most boring aspects of your day! We all take shits! We all eat! Sure, I post food pics too but I try to limit myself to posting only the more interesting foodventures I’ve had. If your idea of an exciting time is McDonalds no one needs to know about it, m’okay?
And you know, maybe you are boring. That’s cool too. It happens. We’ve all been there. But at least fucking interact with me. I’m more than happy to follow back people who talk to me, RT some of my asinine bullshit or favorite it.
Just don’t get your panties all up in a bunch cause you followed me and I didn’t follow you back when we have nothing in common and no interaction took place beyond you pressing the follow button.
