HI @rich-brooks —
I don’t think this is set in stone for any of us. Of course, I don’t follow certain types of accounts (the porn, gangsta kids, abusive, drugs, promised followers, etc.) but I do have a set of “nevers” or “sometimes”.
I try NOT to follow anyone who —
1 – Has not added a picture and/or a bio.
2 – Has not tweeted. I mean, why not?
And pretty much that’s it. I use a few tools like “who unfollowed me” on a regular basis.
Like you, I follow as many accounts in my home state of KS as possible and only unfollow those if they are individuals who then unfollow me. I follow a lot of accounts that don’t follow back, like NASA (about 50 NASA accounts) and the biggies, like Brian Solis, Darren Rowse and Guy. I don’t follow celebrities for the most part (altho’ there are a few of those too – Star Trek actors mostly, heh). I follow a ton of writers/authors as I am an avid reader.
This is for my personal account, which btw, is the only account I have on twitter for me and my businesses. I do it all in one place and use hashtags when appropriate. I have the max lists allowed and use those on a daily basis too.
My criteria is probably not your criteria as individuals will all have their own set of rules to follow.
