  1. You and Jangro both make good points on the use of Twitter. I got much more out of it when I was only following a couple hundred people. Although TweetDeck makes it much more manageable, I still only (really) pay attention to the same few hundred people.BTW, glad I made the cut. πŸ™‚

  7. how're you keeping up with the updates from people you're followings?keyword-triggered search.twitter.com ?i find it sucks up all my time if it's above a couple of hundred people i'm following.

    i find it sucks up all my time if it’s above a couple of hundred people i’m following.

    1. I’m primarily a TweetDeck user on the desktop (both on my Macbook Pro and my Windows 7 laptop). Following thousands of people isn’t that bad if you’re only relying on TweetDeck since you can segment the people you are really interested in hearing into specific groups.

      However, I love the PowerTwitter FireFox plugin which makes the website interface incredibly useful and usable. Additionally, I’m always on the move and like to use Tweetie on the Touch or TwitterBerry on the Blackberry. With those solutions, following more than a few hundred or so people makes Twitter unusable.

      So, I’m back down to about 120 now and I’m loving it!

  11. Me too. I got involved in some sort of autofollow, followme website that about ruined twitter for me, and that was just with 200 persons. So I have spent the last couple of days unfollowing, subscribing to RSS feeds for several, and reducing the list of people that I follow down to those that I really care about. And as I drop people I am being dropped, but since I am using twitter to increase my knowledge, does not really matter.

  21. What about an auto-follow strategy to see if the person who just followed you may actually be an interesting follow? Over time, if they don't contribute much, then unfollow…. How else would you know?

  22. That just seems completely inefficient to me (having tried it). I'd much rather find people that are interesting via search.twitter.com or through a RSS feed of keywords on terms/ideas/issues/locations etc in which I'm interested.Opening the floodgates and then paring down dilutes the stream and quality of people I'm following and who are already interesting.
