Are some people wired to get lots of Twitter followers, or what?

    I don't get it: Why do so many people get 1000+ Twitter followers? This is unfathomable to me.

      I believe some people like to feel popular and feel they must have lots of follower to appear cool, or worthy of people's attention.

      I'm not a big twitterer myself. 

      If you are using Twitter to promote yourself or your products etc. Then I could see the benefit of having people following you offering easy access to wide audience.

      Having been a twitterer for quite some time I would conclude that if your active, well behaved and have something to offer to the community, you will get followers. Yes it is a good marketing forum but there are many good finds there as well, such as joint ventures, free offers, immediate news events etc..

      I tweeted once about sub for sub on Youtube and picked up over 1500 followers. In return I followed those 1500. Twitter can be fun and rewarding.

        I just think its sort of weird I mean that sort of stuff really takes some peoples lives over... some people get addicted to it and personally a lot of people do it because they are obsessed with celebrities and such and what they are always doing.. well I dont really care if rihanna just got her hair done or if britney spears just got done buying shoes and going grocery chopping....

          Not only that but there are millions of active members on the site, so I guess your right.

    It's funny: Since creating this thread, I have one less Twitter follower.

    I think it should be more about quality than quantity, but I suppose the bigger your network is the more people they are selling to..
