There are so many people that you can follow on Twitter that it can be quite daunting when trying to find people with interests similar to yours. Today I am going to speak through some of the things that will make me leave your twitter account without hitting the follow button.
You only tweet about yourself
If you never interact with other people or respond to tweets then I honestly have no interest in following you. Yes, Twitter is a great place to have a rant or a vent but it is also there so that you can interact with other people. If you are not doing that then what’s the point?
You Only Self Promote
Listen, Twitter is a GREAT place to promote your blog, or your music, or whatever you’re into, but if you just spend ALL day tweeting links to your stuff then I’ll give your account a skip, thanks. I want to read content on my timeline that is not just links and pictures.
You RT Intimate Accounts
You know those pictures that should not be shared all over the internet? Well, the only thing worse than sharing your own pictures like that is sharing ones belonging to someone else. What would make you think that other people on your TL would want to see that?
Your Account is Private
If I cannot see your tweets then I have no idea what you tweet about which means that there is no way for me to know if I want to follow you. So, if your account is on private and I do not know you then it’s just not going to happen.
Your Bio Tells Me Nothing…or too Much
I am not saying that you need to put your whole life in there but tell me who you are, or what you like, so I can at least see if we have things in common and could form a friendship. Also, if your bio tells me every intimate detail about your life and has just a bit too much information for me then I might give it a miss.
Also, and this is a bonus point – Auto DMs – please stop. They are impersonal, irritating, and make me want to hit the unfollow button right away. I have never clicked on a link in one of them before.
Those are some of the reasons that I would not follow you on Twitter. I did a similar post where I shared reasons I won’t follow you on Instagram which you could check out if you wanted to 😉 Also, these are my opinions and you are free to disagree if you wish!
