I am not a big twitter user, but I do use this platform to post once a day on average in order to maintain a light presence there. Although I had an account for years I only really started using it relatively recently as a promotion tool for my photography/art website but I do also post other things that pique my interest.
At least that’s how it started. These days my postings are really only back to this blog rather than to my website, so I know I am doing it all wrong from a marketing perspective but, to be honest, it’s probably saying more about
me and how I have developed “on the web” over the last few years. All that being said, for the last 5 months or so I have been keeping an eye on the number of followers that I have accrued, and there’s a pattern. I seem to hover around the same number, only once going above it to my recollection. I drop by up to a dozen followers over the week and then pick up again in a sort of “revolving door” of community.
When I started on this tweeting malarkey I, like many others I suspect, used to follow and unfollow rigorously in a sort of “tit-for-tat” fashion and I suspect that may be what is happening to me – someone follows me and I don’t follow back so they drop me. I do try to follow people back but I have become more discerning these days as I only really want to see tweets that are likely to interest me.
So, I can reveal that my magic twitter number seems to be 1190.
Does anyone else experience the same phenomenon, and if so would you like to share your magic number?
