David, great post. In talking today with one of my colleagues about the lure of Twitter, he said: "I don't give a Tweet!" Will the pendulum swing in this direction because of the inanity of so many Twitter users' updates?

I have no idea, and Neville's no help; he wrote me on Twitter yesterday,

"thrilled to know I'm a bovine comfort to you, David :) Back to your post once I can think of something ridiculous to say!"

And then nothing.

The man marches to the Tweet of his own drummer.

I've unfollowed people for the crime of having too much to tweet... and been unfollowed for the same.

Great article and I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one! A while ago I asked for comment via Twitter, and got.... Strangely enough, there were some familiar names amongst my list of followers and yours! So, I felt I too had to blog about my similar frustrations. Naturally, I sent an automatic Tweet to let everyone know I'd done it!!

It will be great when people stop being on transmit and start thinking about receiving. I no longer follow people who have 27,578,976 other followers. Gaming the system isn't what Twitter or any other social media is supposed to be about.
