I received an interview request from John Pollack of the Telegraph Journal last week asking my opinion of auto-follow services for Twitter and, specifically, Twollow – a Moncton-based offering. You can read the article by clicking here.
"To what end would you need 25,000 followers..." I'm sure that didn't come out right. @Pirie
1) Twollow doesn’t send messages. That’s up to you.
2) “Unless a company is engaging in conversation with potential customers on Twitter and other social networking sites, the business is essentially broadcasting through twitter, Pirie says.
“What it amounts to is spamming,” he says.”
I’m sure Pirie didn’t know clarification Point 1 above, it just came out wrong, or he’s addressing people who just broadcast.
3) “To what end would you need 25,000 followers, and what do you think you’re getting from there..” I feel weird defending other people’s words, but I’m pretty sure we’d all love to have 25,000 followers hanging on our every word about our businesses. We do. Well, almost 25k, 22k-ish now.
