Impersonal Rejection

Until last month, when I started blogging, I never really understood Twitter.  It's like Facebook, if Facebook was just the status update.  Still, that didn't stop me from joining Twitter last year.  I figured what the hell, I'll see what it's all about.

What really baffled me was that a handful of people I've never met began following me on Twitter.  I didn't think much of it, because for my first year on Twitter a posted a grand total of two Tweets.  But I still don't know them.

It seems that one of these "followers," however, figured out that he and I have nothing in common.  As of a few days ago, this person "de-followed" me, dropping my total number of followers to 14.  Coincidentally, that's the same amount of followers I have for this blog, though I know every one of my Philloverse followers.

I say good riddance to this disloyal follower.  I remember looking at his profile and thinking to myself, "What the hell is this person following me for?  We have nothing in common."

Still, that doesn't mean a part of me isn't crushed by this rejection.


  1. You don't need him. He might have just been a spammer anyhow.

  2. he probably was a spammer. friend me on twitter- reinventingerin just like the blog.

    and you are in no way irrelevant, my brother.
