Why I’m not participating in the “Great twitter unfollow experiment”

Dear Reader,

Short answer:
I don’t need to. I don’t auto-follow and create the false impression that I want to engage with everyone who follows me.

Long answer:
At the beginning of the month, Chris Brogan, someone I usually respect and keep an eye on, posted on his blog that he was unfollowing all the people he followed on twitter. Then Michael Hyatt did the same. I’ve been amused as I’ve watched others tweet or post that they are following suit. Just recently now, Brogan posted an update on his unfollow experiment. In it he states that he has learned that it upset some people. Honestly, how could you expect anything but anger and resentment, along with a large dose of apathy.
