If you know anything about me, you know that I love Twitter. In the impersonal world of computers, it’s a wonderful way to connect and make friendships. As of yesterday, @ThePetWiki has over 1000 followers. That’s a pretty big milestone.
The truth is that it’s really not that hard to get 1000 followers. All you really need to do is to follow strategically and hope that they follow you back. With all the juggling that I’ve been doing lately, I really haven’t had time to investigate strategic follows. I’m glad that I haven’t had time, because it’s something that I really don’t want to do.
All the people that I have followed have been people that interest me. I want to read their tweets. I’ve learned a lot from what they have to say and I try to help them out when I can.
I haven’t set up any “user lists.” I don’t know how other people use these kind of lists, but I suspect that most people use it to sift the good from the garbage. It’s one way to get through all the twitter noise.
The other way is to follow very selectively. @ThePetWiki follows just over 400 people. Out of those 400, there are probably only 50 people that are very active. I suspect that I can’t do more than that without losing the community feel of the group.
Anyway, yea us! We broke the 1K mark.
