I Might Un-follow You If….

16 Aug

Today I started a fun little game on Twitter, called “I might un-follow you if….” It’s a take on the old “You might be a redneck if….”

Loved how enthusiastic everyone was….love it when Twitter is a chatroom 🙂 The #ImightUnfollowYouif hashtag resulted in the following

I might Un-follow you:

  • If Your avatar “blinks” at me.
  • If you have no picture no profile no tweets.
  • If  your Avatar is you in a bikini doing downward dog.
  • If your profile picture is an egg.
  • If you tweet in a different language with strange characters.
  • If you are a dog or a cat or a horses “back-end”
  • If you keep telling me what U ate 4 no good reason.
  • If you never post original thoughts or interact with your network.
  • If you only talk to celebrities, yet you are not one….
  • If you only tweet about your 24 cats and living with your mom.
  • If I see that all of your linked articles from social media “experts” come from Mashable.
  • If your only check-ins on @foursquare are to strip clubs and pet stores.
  • If your tweets are 90% URLs…
  • If you immediately want to tell me how to win a free iPad.
  • If you DM me about how much weight you just lost.

      These people? And who might they be? “I Might Un-follow You If you haven’t Tweeted in over a month. What’s the point if no one is there?

  2. tastyvocals August 16, 2011 at 7:36 pm #

    I meant “you.”

    #IMightUnfollowYouIf – you post things that are profane but not witty, if your tweets are mean spirited, if you cannot be bothered to write in anything other than text jargon

    (and #IWillUnfollowYouIf you ever post hate speech)

      Agreed! #ImightUnfollowYouIf you bore me or if you hate….period.

    This is one of the best post I’ve ever seen. There is not so much to add, simply #unfollow for all that people that never answer when you ask, never respond when you say hello, or never say you’re welcome when you say “thanks”.

    Congs for the post!

      Wow, Abel! Thanks for the high praise!

    Now I have to re-evaluate my list

    • thyroidinfo September 13, 2011 at 11:16 pm #

      Ha! Let me know how that works out for you 😛

    #1 reason I unfollow is use of profanity.

    If you have 3,000 tweets, but it’s because every two hours, your bot broadcasts of 5 self-promoting marketing tweets about your book. And you don’t say anything else interesting or respond to mentions / DMs. r*o*b*o*t*m*a*r*k*e*t*i*n*g

      LOL Mike When I first read this, I thought you were talking about ME!! I was offended….then I realized you were adding to my list of “I might Unfollow You…” LOL! Great laugh to start out my day!! 😛

    Favorite line is “love it when Twitter is a chat room”. Never thought of it that way, but it’s so true.

      It really isn, isn’t it? Hashtags help narrow the field, but I’ve met some of the BEST people on Twitter….

    How about an all natural cure for a disease “like diabetes”… I get a ton of those tweets..
