A post in response to: You’re not on Twitter’s suggested user list but you are in good company: by Robert Scoble
First, I have to say, I LOVE his statement:
“If @facebook (Twitter’s top competitor, according to @ev Evan Williams, co-founder of Twitter) got on Twitter’s SUL that would be funny! But imagine a world where Twitter gets that confident!”
I laughed out loud when I read that one.
And secondly, I might agree with Scoble as far as getting rid of the list, but I don’t know if I can back up his idea of removing the follower count. Too many people (even me, I’ll be honest) like to see how many people they have in their network.
However, I do get irritated at the nobodies who mass follow people and then mass unfollow people to try and make it look like they are someone special or something. It’s kinda lame.
And finally, he shouldn’t take it too personally that he isn’t on the list. In fact, he is with the majority on this one. But he is a fabulous writer and the fact that his post received 113 comments before I ever even got here, I bet I’m not the only one who thinks that with as much research and thought he poured into his post, @scobleizer probably should be.
