Anyone in my current shoes will find out just how asinine Twitter’s follow limitations are. They are quoted at limiting the average user to only being able to follow 2000.
Cool. I get it, it’s hard for a person with 3 followers to justify following 2k+. When I had only 1,000 followers, I could still only follow 2,000. I had zero complaints because the ratio was there.
Now let’s look at my current profile. I have 1,819 followers and guess what? Still limited to 2,000. When you refer to the support page they claim they have an unpublished ratio they allow. If this were a card game, I would be calling “B. S!” on this.
To me, “unpublished ratio” means arbitrary limits not published to avoid conflict. I am sure that I am going to have to suffer until my followers increase to 2K before I am allowed over my hump. To do so, I am going to have to go through my curated list of people who I relate to, and cut people that I WANT TO FOLLOW, and hope to add them later.
And please don’t advise me to dump stale accounts. I remove all accounts that haven’t tweeted within a week. I do this daily to make sure I am getting the most active people in my feed, where I use Tweetbot to filter through the racket in order interact with them.
