On Twitter: From the sublime to the ridiculous

I recently resumed twittering after a long absence, and have thus acquired a handful of new followers.

The next to most recent was the CEO of a software company in Austin that develops mobile apps. I followed up by following his Twitter posts, reading his blog, linking up via LI, and so. We’ve exchanged a couple of emails and I’m scheduled to have a phone call with him in a few minutes.

This is a good example of Twitter at its best.

However, my most recent Follower is

@Kaiser-Battistone: Your answer to plumbing and septic problems.

I’m hoping their decision to follow me was not based on reading my code at http://github.com/daveshields
