Okay, I reply to a lot of people on Twitter. I have 36,000 followers, and that means several hundred opportunities to either seem rude or attempt to answer back some folks. If you have 100 followers and one of them is me (or Scoble, or Gary Vaynerchuk, or other folks who engage their audience deeply), you might not want to see every @reply I (we) give to those folks. It’s pretty easy to fix this in Twitter.
Here’s what you do:
- Go to http://twitter.com/account/notifications
- Change @replies to read: “Show me @replies to the people I am following.”
That’s it. You’ve just likely cut out several HUNDRED tweets a day from me (and the gang).
Pass it on? (If you were suffering with this, probably others in your circle are, too.)
