Thoughts on Un-Follows/Qwitter

Mobile post sent by astrout using Utterlireply-count Replies.  mp3

I had someone stop following me this weekend (no big deal, it happens all the time). As I was going in to in-follow them back -- a standard practice unless the person is someone I've chosen to follow -- I noticed that this person's most recent tweet was a little snarky regarding all the reciprocal in-follows that ensued. I sent a message to this person asking what they expected when they decided to "leave the conversation." The rest of the story and my thoughts on un-following are in the attached Uttercast.

What do you think?


  1. It sounds like you're thinking too much. If Twitter is not working for you and the other person, try another social networking medium. Else, let things go.

  2. @ariherzog could be - I guess my main point was, I was surprised that the person who un-followed a bunch of people was surprised that people un-followed him back. My deal is, I don't care if people follow or un-follow me but if you choose to un-follow me (and you were the one that initiated the relationship), don't be surprised if I choose to stop following. Clear as mud, right? ;)
