I still don't exactly "get" Twitter.
Over the months, I've amassed... let's see... 308 "followers." In not much more time, Turk has over 1000. And, as you'd expect, Phil has, let's see...1,024,375,918,327. Totally figures.
Now, I'm "following" 28, and Turk's "following" 89. Again, figures. He's such a follower. (Phil, of course, follows no man.)
I've noticed recently that some people with huge followership have "followed" me... several times. Same person, adding me, 2, 3, 4 times.
I wonder if that's a tactic. Is the theory that the more you follow, the more will follow you back? So when it doesn't work with me, they just re-follow me, in the hopes that I'll reciprocate and up their followership?
