A quick short rant.
I don’t expect to be everyone’s cup of tea and when I follow people, I certainly don’t expect them to follow me back. Sometimes, it’s as simple as logistics, you cannot accommodate everybody, it would just consume your day.
I try to follow back most of mine at first, but will then remove if there is radio silence. But what I find really fucking rude is when I follow some popular people (who don’t follow back) and I regularly enjoy what they type, sometimes even moved enough to reply, they never ever respond, as if I am unworthy of acknowledging.
All it takes is a quick click on the “mentions” section and a few characters sent back.
These busy intelligent funny individuals may be overwhelmed with responses, so I usually let it go the first few times, but then I find it happens every single time.
Do I unfollow and miss out on their charming anecdotes and funnies? Simply because I am not charming and funny enough for them to reply?
They make me feel like a hassle, an annoying little stalker who dares to mention or type at them. Maybe I should name and shame?
