Twitter‘s strength, they say, is measured by the number of followers you attract in relation to those you follow. But is this a right judgement to pass when considering who to follow on Twitter, or not?
To Follow Or Not To Follow..
Have you paused to consider the fact that some Twitter users follow you to get a reciprocate follow from you, then un-follow you afterwards? How do you handle such situation? May be you have not logged in to see 100 followers shrink to 80, 70 or even 60 overnight? Don’t be surprised if it is happening to you for the first time!
There are 1million+ unscrupulous social media users out there. There are some tools out there you can use to screen out such dodgy followers. An example is the friendorfollow application.
How do you then distinguish real profiles from dodgy tweeps (users)? There is actually no single rule to identifying fake Twitter account other than carefully checking the profile for tweets, followers and “following” first. This is summarised in the two points below:
- Check the number and nature of tweets. For example, check if there are dodgy tweets with spam links etc.
- Compare the percentage of followers to those the tweep is following.
