First, I don’t really have a Twitter Follow Policy. I look at the profile, glance at the latest Tweets, and always follow any URL in the profile – the lack of a URL is a turn-off. Then I just “guess” on if I would enjoy following someone or not. I follow some people because they are idiots, and I enjoy their antics. I enjoy some people for their occupational savvy. And I enjoy some as friends, or friends of friends.
My “Twitter Follow Policy” is decidedly unfair, I realize. But if someone follows me, and sends a Tweet to @kr8tr that is something I find interesting, then I almost always follow them back.
As far as my “Twitter Bio”. I have been on Twitter for over
18 months a long time. I am an early adopter.
I use Twitter in a number of different ways. In the morning, I rarely use it at all – but I have it running and minimized. I respond to messages to me, but I don’t Tweet often. From noon until 7 PM or so I generally use Twitter for business, or for business related stuff.
Later at night I generally use Twitter for fun. I am apt to say anything, or even Tweet a blind date in real time. I love my late night crowd. Generally they are just like me (and probably you). They have finished their “work day” and they are still working. But we all appreciate a bit of humor mixed in.
So please, feel free to follow me. But don’t expect me to fit in a defined box. My interests are all over the map, and so are my Tweets.
And don’t be mad if I don’t follow you back right away. It takes me time to warm up to people.
I hope you join me – and entertain me, enrich me, or just cheer me on. Whatever you do, get involved.
