I totally agree – to increase your Twitter followers you do need to follow your friends. But it gets tough to check the spam and other followers that follow you and want you to follow them back – isn’t it?
Speaking of myself, I am very careful about who I follow and always check out if they have their own blog or site, or are regular on Twitter and other few things. Most of the time, if you don’t follow someone, within a few days they unfollow you too! So, one can never really be assured that who you follow will remain your follower too – isn’t it?
Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Thank you so much Harleena for your comment. Yes its tough to check them but If we want success on twitter then we need to give some time to it.
Yes I agree, I have noticed this case if you don’t follow them back then they will unfollow you.
Personally I have turned on the email notification for any follow. If I get a follower, I get an email notification and from there I do check their profile and if I find them good then I follow back to them.

Atish – Thanks for the wonderful article, glad to publish it on DMC.
Harleena – As atish rightly said, twitter is gaining a lot of popularity and spending some time on optimizing our content with the right user base might actually help us a long way.
Of course, we need to filter out unwanted stuff and spams, but they are there everywhere, so we need to learn to ignore and move forward.
Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend ahead.
