Clean up your Twitter act
You may not be OCD like me, but it’s still prudent to use some tweezers on your social networks. Initially, I discovered MyCleenr which shows you all of your inactive contacts on Twitter, but it doesn’t work unless you follow less than 700 people (which I sooo don’t). Disheartened, I continued my search and this week found Twitoria which has gotten around the API issues MyCleenr has and all you do is tell it your username and is shows all inactive accounts you are following and how many days it has been since their last update. I was apparently following nearly 100 people who haven’t updated in over three months, so I have unfollowed and now my list is a little cleaner.
People are MISSING
What’s most interesting is how many people have fallen off the grid. When you visit their blogs, they’re stagnant. When you go to their Facebook, they’re missing. People that used to comment frequently here and elsewhere and used to be extremely active in this space are M.I.A. I tried contacting a few people over email but had little luck.
Have people gotten desk jobs during this trying time? Have the “social media experts” with hundreds or even thousands of followers that haven’t updated in a year simply on hiatus until money grows from trees again? If you haven’t felt a decline in online interaction, Twitoria will open your eyes. Sure, there are a select few new names in the real estate blogiverse, but there are far more established names that have dropped off.
