Reciprocal Twitter Exchange?

Social Media

by Kenny Hyder

C’mon, you knew it was gonna hap­pen soo­ner or later!

Yes, that’s right folks a reci­pro­cal twit­ter follow exchange.

It actually made me laugh at how bla­tant it was. The best part is, there’s no Matt Cutt’s of Twit­ter to shake a fin­ger at it yet!

I have come across a few tweeps that have tried to get follows by saying that they will follow back (I didn’t oblige), which is one thing.. That’s ALMOST orga­nic and social… But this is a dif­fe­rent thing alto­gether, maybe @ev can shut off the twitter-juice on peo­ple that par­ti­ci­pate in such pro­grams like he tur­ned off the link juice on pro­file links when @mattcutts whined.

Silly Tweeps!

If you know of more recip twit­ter follow exchan­ges, post a link in the com­ments so we can rid our twitter-verse of such scan­da­lous activity!

alright, I’m kidding. But seriously folks. You scratch my back and I will scratch yours. okay, sound good?

haha – no. for real though. okay, okay this is getting old.

Great post man! I totally agree with you – this is out of hand!

Twitter just like pretty much every other social network out there is going to be totally exploited to get numbers. That is why there are so many social networks and not many of them amount to anything!

It should be about social networking, not numbers anyway.

Now with that said why not follow me too
