I’m not what you would call an avid Twitter fan, but I do use it occasionally. The one thing that I don’t like about Twitter is the nonsensical Tweets left by a lot of users. This is the main reason why I am very particular about those I choose to follow. I also make it a habit of checking to make sure that those I am following are also returning the favor.
Lately I’ve noticed a very strange abnormality, and I will go into that shortly. I normally use Friend Or Follow to keep track of those who decide to stop following me, but I decided to use another service just to make sure that the results were the same. That other service, Tweepular, is a bit slower but more entertaining. :smile1_ee:
Anyway, the abnormality I was noticing was that I was following people I had never heard of? By this I mean that I never chose to follow them, and if this is the case how is it possible that I’m following them against my wishes? Is this a scam of sorts that someone has concocted to boost up their follower numbers? If so, it’s bullshit and now that I know I will be keeping tabs on them and deleting them on a more regular basis.
So, has anyone else noticed this, or am I just losing the plot?
EDIT: Sheryl Loch, one of my favorite bloggers put me onto this post she did at the Internet Marketers Guild, of which I am a member. It’s about finding who has access to your Twitter Account, and how to divest them of this control.
