I've been tweeting for 3 years on my primary Twitter account (political) and therefore I follow 711 people and 678 follow me. The number of followers would be higher if my account wasn't protected. I approve the people who follow me. Anyway, I follow only a handful of people on my general account which I rarely check.

At one point I followed almost everyone who followed me (almost 2,000). I unfollowed a BUNCH and am down to following only 329. It's still too many. I don't read them all. I use TweetDeck and have columns for those people that are really important, and I still miss a bunch of what they say.
But whether I follow you or not - if you mention me, I respond.

Following 130, followed by 144... I try to keep up, but it's not always easy. I guess I need to clean up the following/followed a bit.Curmudgeon and Former Member/Participant

Following <100 Here.......
Only following 71 people right now, but that's b/c I once went over 100 and my TL got real nuts, real fast. At least this way I can keep up in a timely manner (and some of my friends only post occassionally anyway).

I follow about 335 and have about 330 following me. I follow iMore people and any one from Auburn (sports). The rest is Politics/religion/news. It is hard to get through the TL but I don't stress over it. I get to it when I get to it.

I follow about 170ish. I honestly try to read everything and respond when I feel necessary. I have about 193 followers which will probably decrease since I just protected my tweets a few days ago.
I love finding new people to follow and really need to manage my lists better so I can keep up with people better. If I don't check my twitter feed all day (which is pretty typical), I can have 500+ tweets to catch up on.
If you want to follow me (and I'll follow back), I'm @_heatherly.

For me I follow about 77, and until recently hadn't taken the time to manage them with lists. I just did it yesterday after finally purchasing TweetBot, and realized how much easier it is to do it that way.Stubbs

Re: how many people do you follow on Twitter?
I only follow 60 people and most of them only tweet a few times a day (if at all) but there's one person who tweets a LOT, even though I enjoy reading their tweets I sometimes have to mute them for days at a time just to keep up with everyone else. I've also filtered out topics I'm not interested in - political keywords, sports teams, etc.Follow me on the Twitter - @_jorts
