    I see Twitter links in a lot of signatures so I figured we could make a thread where people follow each other if they so choose. And yes, I searched and couldn't find another Twitter thread. If you follow me, I'll follow you.

    You didn't follow me. I promise I searched the word "Twitter" in the off-topic section and didn't get a single thread. So it wasn't for lack of effort.

    I've had Twitter since early 2008, and was part of the "beta" before that. @DonaldKelly

    Odd, I tried finding the old Twitter thread and couldn't find it either. I know it's there, cause I remember suggesting that instead of just posting your Twitter name, you also give a reason for following you. Kinda like using a profile - we don't want to just follow John Doe.

    Last warning. Unless you have something positive or useful to post, don't post at all.

    Then don't post in the thread. Your opinion doesn't affect if or how we use Twitter.

    I would imagine it would be because we all obviously have a common interest since we're all on this site. Beyond that though, you can look at someone's page and Tweets and decide if you want to follow them.

    While this is true, I want to see the biography on someone's Twitter home page. Just because you have an iPhone doesn't mean that's what you tweet about. I tend to tweet a LOT about football during the regular season (and pre-season). I do a lot of local tweeting. Do I want to follow someone who tweets only quotes? Absolutely not. Do I want to follow someone who tweets about political/religious views 9 of 10 tweets, and on the 10th mentions an iPhone app? Definitely not.

    A common interest doesn't define your Twitter life.

    Right, and that's why I gave the second reason. You can look at someone's Tweets and page before following them to answer all those questions for yourself.
