Why I Don’t Follow Celebrities (On Twitter)
When I first started using Twitter in September 2009, I followed a lot of celebrities. It was cool; I could sneak a peak into their world and it was an extension of our “friendship” via TV or movies or popular culture.
Now, not so much.
I don’t follow celebrities on Twitter anymore.
It’s nothing personal. I find the value I get from those tweeps is quite small. Sure, there are some funny, funny celebrities, or even some interesting ones, but as I made more and more local connections on Twitter, I saw — and often received — value from those connections.
When I started following Milwaukee-area tweeps, the way Twitter affected my life began to change. I made some connections, met some new friends and acquaintances and had good times.
What have celebrities done for you lately? For me, not a thing.
