What to do? What to do? If one has an active twitter account, it is likely that one will attract undesirable followers. There are programs/spambots that will choose to "follow" your twitter account to promote their products. Usually, the avatar of the twitter-bot is an attractive female, suggesting that they are marketing only to straight men (and lesbians?). I tend to block these folks from following my twitter account, as I do not want to be associated with this stuff. But, on the other hand, it reduces the number of followers I have. My guess is that I would have at least twenty-five percent more followers and perhaps even fifty percent more if I did not block these folks.
Alas what is a 21st century narcissist to do? Accept the unwelcome followers who have agendas? Or block them and then have a lower follower number? I have chosen the latter, but ponder whether it makes a difference at all.
