Do Celebrities Belong in Your Following?
August 21, 2009 5 Comments
Guess #followfriday got me thinking about this. I was looking through people I follow and who they follow. I was focusing more on what I call “official” Twitter accounts vs. personal accounts. I noticed that one library account had several celebrities it was following. For some reason this didn’t sit well with me. I can understand following authors, local celebs that perhaps have been connected to your library or your state but the likes of Miley Cyrus or Justine Timberlake seemed a bit off.
One could argue well if you carry their cd’s in your collection why wouldn’t you follow them? And that is a logical argument I’m just not sold on it. I feel that the people you follow (not necessarily the ones that follow you) says something about you. No followers says one thing about you just as a large number of followers says another. But it isn’t just about the numbers (some folks like the play the number game I prefer quality over quantity). Not sure I like what a bunch of celebrities says about your official account.
