So, here’s my 8 reasons why I may not return the follow;
1. Your Avatar and Bio
I will not follow if there is no avatar or Bio. I want to know something about you!
2. A Foreign Language
I will not follow if your posts are not in English. I need to be able to understand & communicate with you!
3. Continual Boring Tweets
There needs to be some interesting posts present on your stream. I don’t want to see verbose & trivial.
4. Engaging and Social
There needs to be evidence of interaction with other users. Twitter is all about relationship building.
5. Not So Social Salesperson!
If you have under 5 posts with a huge number that you’re ‘following’, more than likely you are trying to sell me something.
6. Collecting Numbers Only
Unless you are a ‘leader’ in your field with a following of 20,000+, I will not return the follow. There will be minimal interaction!
7. A Private Twitter Account? Huh?
If you set your profile to ‘private’, it goes against what Twitter is all about.
8. Spamming on Twitter
If it is blatant ‘spam’, I will not follow you but I WILL block you and report you to @spam
If you fulfill these requirements and have a link to a website where I can learn even more about you, the chances are, I will return the follow.
If you would like to connect on Twitter and we aren’t already, you can find me over at @kirsty_wilson Come and tweet with me!
