Impressions on the Social Age

No One Likes a Qwitter

Posted in Social Networking Discovery by Trace on May 15, 2010

While using the ‘ol Twitter this week, I realized I’ve lost a follower. Now, I know it’s no big deal to lose a follower… but when you only have 190, a single follower is 0.5% of my overall user base!

During my Internet Advocacy class this semester, Rosenblatt has promised we will learn how to gain in followers, but in order to understand how you gain (easy looking at the Stats of # of clicks – I use Hootsuite) it’s not as obvious when people leave. For that, my social discovery of the week is Qwitter, an unfollow tracker for those who tie their self worth to their number of followers.

Qwitter is a free tool which sends you an email digest regarding your weekly unfollows you. It even gives you the exact tweet which might have possibly caused your fan-loss.

Simple and easy, my favorite kind of geekyness. I’ll check it out, maybe you should too, but don’t worry, it’s not what you know its who you follow… or maybe it’s who follows you? We need to update these old sayings.
