There is an emergent trend in optimal Twitter use:
If you have X followers,
You should have 2X people that YOU follow
And have made 3X updates
Get it? Twitter 1-2-3. Nice simple rule...
Here is what is means if these ratios are out of whack:
- Less then 2X people that you follow = who do you think you are, Shaq?
- More than 2X people that you follow = perhaps you should do something besides Twitter?
- Less then 3X updates = why are so many people following you?
- More than 3x updates = you really like to listen to yourself, don't you?
