50 Reasons Why Nobody Is Following You On Twitter

By Shea Bennett on November 5, 2011 9:30 AM

A couple of years ago I wrote a fairly popular post entitled 16 Reasons Why We Might Unfollow You On Twitter. A lot has changed on Twitter over that period, so it’s time for an update.

(And a look at it from the other perspective.)

Want to know why nobody is following you on Twitter? Or why lots of people are unfollowing you?

The answer will very likely be found in one or more of the bullet points from the list below:

You tweet too much

You don’t tweet enough

You’re a spammer

You’re following spammers

You keep asking people to follow you

You openly discuss personal stuff

But you take everything personally

You’re a friend who acts like an enemy

You don’t have a bio

You’re following too many people

You only talk about yourself (or your product)

You project

#You #use #hashtags #for #every #frickin #word

There are no replies on your profile page

You’re a jerk

You don’t speak a word of English (harsh, but true)

You’re a bully

You’re too negative

You’re too positive

You’re forever the newbie

U twt n txt spk

You’re obsessed with follow count

You’re a different person in real life

You don’t appear to have a real life

You generate too much noise

You have a protected profile

We’re always asleep when you tweet

You’re a liar

You don’t know your limits

You’re part of the problem

All you do is criticise Twitter

You’re obsessed with celebrities

You keep making the same mistakes

You’re unprofessional

Your spelling and grammar is etroshus

You retweet everything

You’re too argumentative

You’re sloppy

You find everything offensive

You committee tweet

You just can’t let go

You blame the wrong people

You try to game it

You churn

You ask for retweets

You’re a security risk

You’re a metweeter

You think Twitter is boring

You’re always telling people when you unfollow them

Why would anyone follow you?

Phew. Take a deep breath. Relax. Even if you’re guilty of multiple felonies from this list, I have good news for you – it only takes a little extra work to fix everything, and before you know it your follower dilemma will be over.

It’s pretty simple. You know those things you are doing that are putting other people off? Stop doing them.


See? Problem solved.

(PS. You’ll have your own list – feel free to add your suggestions in the comments.)
