My new Twitter policy

While Twitter has helped me connect with a bunch of great people, it’s also added a little clutter to my life. Once I started following north of 50 people it became too much to keep up with. So I’m only following 50 from here on out (well, 52, I can’t stop following Darth Vader or Cobra Commander for fear of what might happen).

I’m not sure how I’m going to whittle the list down, but if you get the boot just know it’s really not you, it’s me. This is part of simplifying every piece of my life.

And in the future if I want to add someone I’ve got to cut someone else.

What’s your Twitter policy?

    I’ll basically let anyone follow me, since it’s cumbersome to block people. I’m only going to follow you if I know you F2F or you hit me up with some quality @replies.

    Basically, if I like your tweets, I follow you. If I don’t, I don’t. Pretty simple. I go through and clean house once in a while.

    @claytonbell I used to have the same policy, but even with that I was following too many people.

    @Fred The single best policy I’ve ever seen. (Your check’s in the mail.)

    @Rick But how many is too many to follow in your book?
