Why Do You Follow? Twitter is for Lovers

So my social media friend, Jody Whitesides, asked me how I had 1,600 followers. Honestly, I had a few basic ideas, but I wasn’t sure. So I thought I’d ask my followers ‘why’ they followed me. Not everyone responded, but the people who did respond had some interesting responses:

doctorlinguist @Tabz I follow you for the awesome.

motownmutt @Tabz cuz you have a cute kitty avatar?

CalgaryGuru @Tabz …’cause Mr. Twitter told me to follow you?

numindan @Tabz Cause you’re the goddess behind Bbtl and I enjoy your updates

UKMelia @Tabz Because I wub you.

avenuez @Tabz I have a tough time remembering why I followed my current peeps, but I know why I do/don’t these days.

coyotesqrl @Tabz BBtL castmember, so it seemed only reasonable 🙂

smittyhalibut @Tabz Heard of you first from BBtL, continue to follow because you’re interesting and haven’t annoyed me yet. 🙂

Steve_Lipton @Tabz because some else was replying to you. Though I can’t remember who.

Of course, the best answer is from Kaylee Frye ;). But it’s interesting to see that a huge amount of the responses because of my podcast or involvement in the Joss Whedon fandom. So, how about you? Why do you follow people on Twitter?
