Last night I signed up for Twitter.  Not that I have any real intention in using it – mostly I was bored and signed up because of a couple of articles I’ve read recently on using the service as an IT tool or as a commercial tool intrigued me.

What I’ve found strange/interesting is almost immediately I have 6 “followers”, random people that I don’t know and as far as I know don’t have a connection to.  And I haven’t written a single word yet.  After signing up I started following a couple of users off the top of my head, but is this normal?

  1. I’ve had a few random people start following me, usually after I tweet about a subject they are interested in. Most stop following me after a couple of days if I don’t mention that subject again. The one semi-useful follower I’ve acquired was AlaMoanaCenter. Apparently, someone running the enormous mall near me thought it would be a good idea to create a Twitter account with daily sales and happenings. I don’t pay much attention to it, but I’d rather read 140 characters of advertising than get junk ads in my mailbox any day of the week.
