@Jett_Kathryn 9000 Plus Twitter Followers and Growing
So this happened today! We are still kinda new at this as we have truly only been actively tweeting for just under one year. What is truly gratifying to us is that by any social media metrics we can run, our followers are 99% real. Yes, we do not knowingly follow any Twitter spammers. You know the ones. They are always either trying to sell things like Ray Ban sunglasses or are trying to convince you to buy thousands of Twitter followers. We routinely block these tweeps.
We Seek Engagement
Additionally, we do not play the follow/unfollow/follow again/unfollow again ego game. Yes, there many people in the Twitterverse who are seemingly trying to look uber cool by getting lots of people to follow them while they follow few to none in return. It is almost as if they’re trying to become some sort of Twitter celebrity who is in such demand that they simply cannot keep up with following their adoring fans. They may even be using automated social media programs to help them accomplish this mean feat. In reality, they are just wasting other people’s time.
“Life is Simple: Don’t be a Dick“
The bottom line is this. Never follow someone just to grow your numbers and then unfollow. This is not how real engagement works. We follow those who follow us who are real and seeking true engagement. It’s all about authenticity. As the brilliant comic, Bill Murray, once said… “Life is simple: Don’t be a dick.“
