We don’t really count the people we are following – and usually press the follower button – on any user id, which does look interesting. But there are few ethics that needed to be followed in order to perform better with twitter.
You need to take care of the followers – because twitter has a blockage applicable if you are following more than 2000-people and they are not following you back – this makes you stuck in one place and you cant add any more follower.
Therefore, you need to have a look on the follower counter as well and keep a check of the entire followers that are not following you.
You can easily do it by Twitter Karma – by entering the user id and password of the twitter account – as you get in to the account area – you will have a nice interface – with graphical representation of users that you are following and they are not following back.
You can easily unfollow them by using this application.
This does provides stability to twitter account and you know who are the people interested in you and this not only enhances the twitter account but also pulls you out of reading all the tweets.
As you clean up the twitter following users count – you can always add fresh users to your list and then again check that they are following you or not -this will easily help you grow your twitter account stats.
