I have been experimenting on Twitter. At one point I added the top 30 people on twitter that follow other people. I raised the amount of people I was following to about 150. In return I ended up with over 200 follower. Big number right? Two days later I reduced the amount of people I follow to people I actually follow. My followers quickly reduced into the 80s.
Lesson learned, retweet, and follow those that follow you. Follow me: http://www.twitter.com/aarondavidson
