Mic: Why the follow-unfollow method still persists on social media

Mic: Why the follow-unfollow method still persists on social media. “Like anyone, I’m a sucker for that jolt of endorphins when my notifications tell me I have a new follower. But that feeling of euphoria fades once I realize that account is following me again only days after they followed me the first time. That can only mean one of two things: Less likely, that they no longer liked my posts, unfollowed me, and then decided to give me another try; or more likely, that they’ve followed and unfollowed me to get my attention in the hopes that I’d follow them back. I want to tell these sweet and naïve social media users that, No, If I wanted to follow them back, I would have the first time.”

Mashable: Twitter wants you to cut it out with all those follow backs. “The social media platform famous for Russian bots and harassment announced on April 8 that it has finally had it up to *here* with spammers and is going to take a small step to partially rectify the situation. That’s right, as of now you can only follow 400 accounts per day.” Twitter continues to arrange its deck chairs into lovely patterns.
