Received this follow-notification in my email yesterday. Clearly some people don’t get it. Twitter is about conversation. Not yelling at someone like an annoying child seeking attention.
Notice the discrepancy in follower/following figures. It couldn’t be otherwise. Twitter is not a bullhorn. It’s not a sandwich board. It’s about meaningful engagement and value-exchange. These guys don’t get that. They’ll will probably deplete their goodwill balance at a rapid rate. Ultimately, they’ll probably decide that the results they receive will mean marketing through Twitter is not for them and they will go away.
In contrast, check out @CapelloSandton for how it should be done.
