Why would you follow me on Twitter?

39% of users polled said they’d rather follow a personal account that shares on all of their interests
61% said they’d rather follow a focused account that shares on a handful of topics
80% of those with over 500 followers said that they’d rather follow a focused account

Unsurprisingly, interesting content is the best way to get someone to re-tweet you, along with humor, while an offered incentive or adding “Please RT!” to the end of a tweet are rather ineffective.  Tweeps don’t care if you give them things or ask them to help; they will re-tweet you if they like your stuff or think you’re funny.

So, why would you un-follow me?  Read the whole article on WhiteFireSEO Website

    My twitter account was set up with a writing, book focus. So I unfollow those who both, do not follow back, or have so many followers they are unlikely to ever see me. Also those who are mostly absent.
