So, please don't worry about the numbers, worry about the quality of your PLN! A few great followers and people to follow are worth more than the millions of drones that Kim Kardashian bought.
My policies are pretty simple, I will follow back anybody who:
- Tweets in English
- Has a profile that indicates they are an educator or technology hobbyist
- Does not appear to be just selling something and will contribute to the conversation
- Has an unprotected account. (A protected account on Twitter means that you wish to select who follows you and I respect that.)
- Does not post using offensive language, is sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic or geekphobic
I do unfollow people once in a while, who don't follow me, because I want to be part of a two way conversation.
Have fun and look forward to quality conversations on Twitter!
