Unfollow Friday

Twitter got too noisy for me.

Today I pulled out the machete and started hacking. I unfollowed:

  • The “meta-tweeters” who tweet only about tweeting and how to get more followers1Yes, I recognize the irony.
  • Those who I’d followed only because they’d followed me first
  • Those who tweeted about things that used to interest me, but not anymore
  • The companies whose products/services I don’t use anymore
  • Those who don’t interact with others
  • Those who use Twitter only to announce new blog posts
  • Those who haven’t tweeted for months (even a few who had never tweeted!)

The difference is amazing. My Twitter stream is filled with people I know and the topics I like.

I think I’ll keep that machete handy.

Have you considered an unfollow Friday?

Maybe I should have just linked to my Twitter Landing Page. Actually, I’ve edited my Twitter Landing Page in response to this post.
