Rolling Back Twitter Friends

by Paul Fischer

I’m sorry to say I just can’t keep up with the greater conversation on Twitter anymore. In order for Twitter to continue to be of value to me I must cut back on who I’m following. I hate to do it. There are a ton of people out there with good information and interesting lives. But I’m just too damn busy.

I think my heuristic will be something akin to this: Do I know you personally? Have I met you in person? Am I going to meet you in person? Do we do business together? Do I find you intensely interesting?

Unfortunately, everyone who doesn’t meet the heuristic must be axed. I’m sorry, but I need to make Twitter work for me. Please don’t be offended. It’s nothing personal. I will still approve follow requests, but I will likely not follow you back.
