Twittequette, Twitterprocity, and #followfail

I have noted an increase in email over the last month which address my twittequette, with respect to my twitterprocity — or lack thereof.

I have also noted an increase in email over the last month, with respect to my cessation of twinterest, reflected in the removal of certain kinds of tweeple from my Twitter stream.

Without further ado, here are the top 5 reasons I will (likely) not follow you, or stop following you altogether on Twitter.

  1. You have no Twitter avatar — When you sign up for Twitter, you are encouraged to upload an image that will represent you in the twitterverse. With it, your Twitter profile appears more personable, identifies you in your followers’ Twitter stream, and helps you to relate others.
  2. You have no Twitter profile — Again, when you sign up for Twitter, you are encouraged to fill out details about yourself, specifically your location, link to your web site, and a little blurb about yourself. This helps others to ascertain how interacting with you could add to their overall Twitter experience.
  3. You have less than 25 followers — And you are following hundreds upon hundreds or thousands upon thousands of Twitter users. In my opinion, Twitter is about quality, not quantity.
  4. You have never updated your Twitter status — Or, you rarely update your Twitter status, or you have less than 25 Twitter status updates, or you update your Twitter status every 5 minutes.
  5. Any and/or all of your Twitter activity has been, is now, and will continue to be about marketing a product and/or service to the twitterverse — A product and/or service which I will never ever want, much less need.

Basically, a combination of any and/or all of the above could/would/should result in a lack of twitterprocity on my part, or a #followfail. However, neither of these should reflect negatively on my twittequette.
