So today I culled 350 or more people I was following. Then I culled out another 800. Why? They weren't following me. Now I can follow some other folks. It was time-consuming, but I hope it'll be worth it. It felt good, anyway.
It was unbelievable some of the people I was following. I guess I followed them because they were following me at some point. Then they dropped me. Now they're dropped.
Why mention this on an editing/writing blog? Get real. If you're a writer or editor and have a Twitter account, you're trying to get every advantage you can. There's no point in following someone who isn't following you; a leaner account is a good thing.
Any comments on writing, editing or Twitter?
