Time to twit-clean?

Thanks to Ravi.
When is it time to clean up your following / follower list?
I haven’t been tweeting that long, but I’m still surprised at the random follows I’m acquiring. Is it a problem? No. The more the merrier, say I!
Follows are a bigger issue. Too many, and there is info overload, anxiety, and a constant, pervasive feeling of being left behind. The tweet alert tone evokes the same responses that your boss’s call ringtone on your cell does.
Formula to clean up –
IF (frequency of meaningful* tweets) > (average time taken to action a meaningful tweet + read non-meaningful tweets + live the rest of your life) THEN (Info overload, time to clean up) ELSE (you’re seriously disconnected, dude.)
*meaningful tweets being defined as tweets that inspire you to some action – follow a link, read an article, retweet, reply, anything else.
Hope this helps! 🙂
And I was serious about the more the merrier. For this and similar, follow me.
