Bookmarked Why I Follow Those Whom I Follow (and Why I Unfollow Those Whom I Once Followed) (dogtrax.edublogs.org)
Why do you follow or unfollow? Have you even ever thought about it?
Kevin offers an interesting reflection on following. I am particularly taken by Algot’s personal approach. I have reflected here, but basically I have cut back to those I have had some sort of interaction with.
Replied Detritus and Debris: Weeding My Social Networks (dogtrax.edublogs.org)
My criteria was: does I recognize this name, even remotely? Do I ever see or notice this person in my timeline? If not, the likely result was an unfollow. I havenโ€™t yet made it to the bottom of my follower list, so more are likely to go.
Thank you Kevin for providing the impetus to weed my account. There is so much written about leaving Twitter and although I am not at that point, I have been feeling somewhat indifferent about it of late, so it was good to stop and reflect.

For so long I followed any educator who followed me. It just seemed right. But I have noted the consequence within spaces like Nuzzel. Although I have used lists in the past, but with my tendency to use Twitter on my phone, this can be tedious.

I went through and removed two thirds of follows. I basically kept those who I have had some conversation and connection with. I am not sure what difference this might make to how I use Twitter, especially with my dive into the #Indieweb. Time will tell.
