    It’d definitely happened to me, and I totally agree with you, I have the exact same philosophy with followers. Although a few months ago I *had* to turn off notifications because after I passed 2k followers, I started to find the quality of new followers decreased and the quantity increased (or maybe it was just because of Twitter’s popularity…I don’t know). Now I still manually go into my followers and check out interesting profiles to follow and block spammers (because I definitely agree, it’s worth the time to build a stellar network)

    But I’m so sick of the DMs (I now block anyone who sends me a spammy DM like the one you mentioned) and also people who follow and unfollow to get their numbers up (where, if you don’t follow back, they continue to follow and unfollow)

    Hi Kelly, thank for commenting. It’s such a shame that we have to have twitter friend tests, turn off notifications and that we’re sick of spammy DMs. Unfortunately, I think this could get worse. I also don’t like this new follow/unfollow strategy to get a person’s numbers up. It just proves that so many people don’t really understand the true benefits of social networking and the value of being a part of dynamic conversations. I guess these challenges will continue as more of our networks become mainstream.
