But links on twitter are valueless so what's the matter ?

My way, for example, isn't workable or desirable by everyone on Twitter. But that's OK, I need Twitter to produce results for me. I don't need validation that I use Twitter "correctly."

For the record, Seth, I don't think you're nuts :) I pretty much follow you everywhere.

And, yes, Gina, the quality of who you follow matters a great deal in any case.

Does a bird singing in a forest of 45,000 birds have an audience? or does the audience just hear a forest with a lot of birds singing?

Seth makes an excellent point -- his follower/following numbers are/were much larger than mine and that does make a difference in how we each handle Twitter opportunities and obstacles.

But that was also my point: use Twitter in a way that is meaningful and useful to you and your followers rather than simply copy what you see someone else doing.

Hi Pam! Great post!

Thanks for following lots of people. You keep an eye on what they're saying and when you see something interesting, make sure you tweet about it. That way, since I'm following you and I see nearly all your tweets, I'll be very much aware of any story before it crests.

Sounds like a nicely leveraged network. =)

Gina, yes. I'm going for quality. Finding a balance between listeners and talkers. I don't think I'll miss out on anything. This was a move made with the idea of missing out on LESS than I ever have before. Pam might say I'm nuts, but I think she's still at a point where her numbers are manageable. I wasn't, so the stories are a bit different.

The take-away I'm hoping for is that more people understand that they don't have to follow everybody back or feel like they have to edit themselves in order to have a vibrant community.

What about QUALITY Followers. I'm a newbie at tweeting so I don't know the word, but I bet there is a special word for spammers and quitters.
