The Twegomaniac ~ The Twitter Follower/Unfollower Egomaniacs
My goodness, call me James Audubon and fly me to the moon. I have discovered a new species of bird ~ the Twegomaniac. This was a rare big that is becoming quite common.
The bird is part of fauna that exists in the Twitterverse. There cry is "Follow Me, Follow Me" and to get you to do that, they follow you first. But they are like the cuckoo bird who fools its host. Once you abide by the Twitter netiquette and follow them, they unfollow you. It's all about them. They are the birdbrain egomaniacs who thinks that size matters. They were born with a small size, and to try and enlarge it, instead of having the personality and content to get followers (like Jesus, Ghandi or Clint Eastwood's Empty Chair), they have to resort to trickery. They just don't have the right stuff.
So how do you know if you have come across a Twegomaniac in your follow list? The biggest clue is that you have never heard of them, and they have 100,000 follows and 200,000 followers. The other identifying feature is a big asshole.
So how do you protect yourself from these odious creatures and droppings that they leave all over your home page before they leave. There are a plethora of tools out there to help detect unfollowers. I have been known to use the free aspect of manageflitter.com as a pest control method. There are many more. Beware of the Twegomaniac.
