Still wondering why people follow me on Twitter

Last year, I wrote a couple of posts explor­ing the reas­ons why people fol­low me on Twit­ter:

Well a year has passed since I did that basic research, and Twit­ter has been ‘improved’ in the mean­time — revised ReTweet func­tion, Lists, new desktop and mobile applic­a­tion, etc.

So it’s time to ask that ques­tion again. In the last year, I’ve doubled the num­ber of fol­low­ers, but since I did my last bit of research, I’ve not asked them why they fol­low. Time to rec­ti­fy that.

Start­ing tomor­row, I’ll go back to the pro­cess I used to gath­er the first bit of data — a return fol­low and DM to my new fol­low­ers — some­thing like this:

thanks for fol­low­ing me. This is NOT an auto-DM, I’m live :)and track­ing ‘reach’ and was won­der­ing why you ‘fol­low’ me in Twit­ter?”

I’ll let it run for a few months, and come March, I’ll ana­lyse the data again, and con­trast the res­ults with last year’s.

But in the mean­time, if you already fol­low me on Twit­ter, please feel free to send me a DM with your answer to the ques­tion “Why do you fol­low me in Twit­ter?”
