Ok, I’ve followed you on Twitter and you may have followed me back. I love that, this is social media after all and its all about following the content of people that you like. You like them because they have amazing content, you have something in common, you may want to do business with them or any number of reasons that you select to follow a person.
Do you hear a BUT coming? Well I won’t disappoint. I’m sure that I really love the content of the person that I just followed and that just followed me. I’m pretty sure that I am totally interested in reading the tweets and I could very well be interested in following that person outside of just Twitter.
What I DON’T really like is the automated Twitter DM that I receive exactly 30 seconds after I follow…. ” Thank you For Following my Tweets, I LOVE your content, YOU Are great, I want to breath your air, I want to name my first born after you, I want to wallow in your essence, I want to tattoo your name on my face Mike Tyson style and I want to absorb your aura. Did You know that my dogs name is Anise?? I love that name. Do you love me too??…Can you follow me on Facebook..Download my ebook, Scan my QR code maybe.” Doh! Homer Simpson look. I’m sorry but this is super LAME! I’m sure I speak for the masses.
Everyone loves your tweets or they wouldn’t be following you. So, stop the lame automated blathering Twitter DM’s, really.
