Another insight into twitter?

If you like some honest, blunt opinions about brands and advertising, and do not yet read The Ad Contrarian blog, do drop over. You'll enjoy.

He posted recently with his observations on twitter.

Such as "Anyone who actually reads all the tweets he gets is completely and utterly insane. I'm convinced that most people follow other people not because they're interested in what they have to say, but in the hope that they, in turn, will be followed."

Sounds controversial. Any twitter users agree?

Hi Paul, it's an interesting one. For example there's people following me and judging from their twitter page, I really haven't a clue why they would be interested in doing so.

Probably some truth in that...BUT I tend to follow people who I think will interest me, so I follow a lot of people in the not for profit sector and its been very useful to me.
