There will never be an end to the debate whether quantity of quality followers wins. Sure there are debate that you should not follow more than 100 followers, or 200 followers and for some you should follow whoever follows you except those who spam.
It is never going to end as everyone have their own opinion. I’m curious, why debate over quality or quantity followers and talk about the followers and not the the person people are following?
Everyone have their own way of using twitter. I started using twitter to build relationships and I can say up to today I’ve met tons of amazing people on twitter. If I had limit myself to follow only 100 to 200 people I don’t think I’ll meet as much people as I did today.
I’m not saying that you should follow a lot of people.What I am trying to say here is that you should engage with people whenever you can. When you have time on your hands, just browse through what people are talking and enter the conversation or retweet any tweets that you find interesting to share with your followers.
I’ve seen some twitter accounts who have 100,000 followers and some have 1000 followers who talks to themselves, and both of these account complains about the same thing that they don’t get much replies or responds.
Then again there are people who have a huge number of followers but still respond to their followers 80% of the time like @chrisbrogan and @unmarketing Since people like @chrisbrogan and @unmarketing replies to their followers. Will they get more responds if they ask any questions? 100% Yes.
I’m not going to deny that there are people who have 100,000 followers but don’t bother to reply others and talks about themselves and their company or products 24/7.When they ask a question will people respond? Maybe a few, maybe not at all.
My opinion? It doesn’t matter how many people follow you on Twitter. Why blame the followers? Blame the person they are following for not engaging enough or not engaging at all. What do you think?
