Twitter Follow Limits #Fail

I reached Twitter’s 2,000 person follow limit today.

Twitter explains their Follow limits are different for every user and after reaching 2000 follows correspond to follow / follower ratios.

From Twitter: “… we have put limits on how aggressively users can follow others.”

Unlike the vast majority of high volume Twitter spammers… umm… users, I don’t follow people mindlessly nor do I follow people expecting them to follow me back.

I don’t use autofollow bots nor do I mine Tweets and Twitter accounts to auto follow.

I simply follow Twitter accounts of people who appear to approach the web and Twitter from a slightly different perspective than I do.

This propensity for dissimilarity is near infinite and obviously wasn’t considered when Twitter calculated its rules and ratios for how many Twitter accounts a legitimate Twitter account can follow.

If dissimilarity was considered, it was deemed spammy because Twitter has attracted more high volume spammers than legitimate high volume users.
