Why there is so much observation, focus and attention given to the number of followers one has on Twitter?
The more followers you have – the more elevated is your social status – both in the real world and the online world…..
Is it because it makes you happy?
Is it because it makes you proud?
Is it because it makes you feel good?
Is it because it increases your visibility?
Is it because it is a personal achievement?
Is it because it makes you feel like a mini-celebrity?
Is it because it gives you a wider reach for your expressions?
Is it because they have the potential to make you a celebrity?
Is it because it improves your networking? – Personal & Professional
Is it because it enables you to create, manage and enhance your personal brand?
Would it not suffice if you have a select set of followers (however small) who really value your tweets and you are able to create an impact on their thoughts, on their decisions on their life?
