Twitter : Will you follow me just because I followed you ?

This is not a “happy” post.  I am just explaining how I feel about a certain nature of some ( read many ) twitizens, they follow you just because you followed them, or they follow you, to make you follow them.

Should I follow you just because you followed me ? Is it the only way to say thanks to my new follower ? Of course not, an RT, or a Direct message will do. But still, people do follow back. Are you expecting someone to follow you back, just because you followed them ?

Okay, let me make this clear. I will follow people only if their tweets are useful or good or nice etc. ie, if I am interested in what they tweet about.  If you are following me, thank you, thank you very much, but don’t follow me just because I followed you, but only if my tweets are useful to you !

ain’t that fine people ?

Its Raining !!

Its raining outside, and it was, when I left the city of gardens last night.

I was moving away, very fast before you could ask me to stop there, for one more moment. But I know, as this mirror says, you are not that far, closer than it appears…..
