Twitter: "To Follow or Not to Follow"


I want to dive into a subject that has a lot of questions but not necessarily a lot of answers.  I am talking about the micro-blogging phenomenon Twitter; and the question of whether or not to reciprocate follows.  Again, for those of you that are not using Twitter; you should check out my previous post 10 Reasons To Twitter.

There are so many different opinions from the Twitter Elite on their following of their followers, following whoever they want to, or not following many people at all.  Here are a few Twitter Elites that I follow and their follower to following credentials/philosophy:

  • Leo Laporte  64,051 Followers and Following 515 (Follows a select few hundred)
  • Guy Kawasaki 30,922 Followers and Following 31,936 (Reciprocates followers)
  • Wayne Sutton 9,827 Followers and Following 9,922 (Reciprocates followers)
  • Perry Noble 2,694 Followers and Following 19 (Follows a very select few)
  • Tony Steward 1,484 Followers and Following 1,660 (Reciprocates & looks for great Twitterers) 
  • Carlos Whittaker 2,419 Followers and Following 86 (Follows a select few; I remembered the night he tweeted about trimming his following list down; I even trimmed my small following list down)

I just shared these Six Twitter Elite to provide some perspective as to the number of followers compared to the number following.  I personally don’t think there is a “Twitter Etiquette” defining the tweet following process; it’s just a matter of personal preference.  I’ve read some pretty angry, frustrated, mean-spirited, bitter… tweets in regards to people not reciprocating the follow.  If you want to find out who’s not reciprocating your follows, check out   I personally have went through seasons of pruning my list and had recently considered doing the reciprocal following thing (Key Word: Considered).   

{Fist Bump} to everyone who follows my tweets.

  • What are your thoughts, opinions, preferences… on reciprocating the follow?
