I Suck and I’m Not Worth Following

A Quick Twitter Rant

Would you ever tweet that message on your Twitter account. I wouldn’t, yet every day I see people doing it.

Of course they are not doing it on purpose. In fact I think many feel they are actually to some degree shaming those that un-followed them. They just don’t realize that the jokes on them.

You can recognize these “I Suck” posts easily, they look like this: @ayz_abc @123_456 @some_person @yougetthepoint un-followed me today … checked by http:/any-number-of-twitter-followers-sites.com

So if you are someone who tweets the names of people who un-follow you, what’s the purpose? What do you hope to get out of the tweet. Do you actually think that someone that un-followed you is suddenly going to say “Sorry about that, please let me re-follow you”.

Do you actually take an un-follow so personal that you have to comment on it. I don’t get it.

When I see these tweets my first thought isn’t what a mean person to un-follow another human being. MY thoughts are how bad must this person’s tweets be for someone to un-follow them.

Am I missing something here?

  1. LOL! Excellent. Could be people un-follow others because they just don’t want to know what that person knows! Like when you are standing in a line and for some reason or other someone feels compelled to communicate with you. You take one look at them and know there is nothing you want going in your brain from them.

  2. Eileen,

    Thanks for the comment.

    The next step is to post a blog about the “people who stopped following my blog” or send an email newsletter highlighting “the people who unsubscribed to my email newsletter”. Even better, “here are the clients who fired me!”
