Hey Chris. I think maybe my words aren't doing me any favors on the topic. So I'm going to try and clarify my points. Following or not following needs to be justified IMO. I'm not saying follow back everyone. I don't follow back everyone. I only follow back those who are relevant to conversation or have interesting points for that account. However, if it's easy to see the similarities between both accounts, then why not follow back? If a potentially meaningful connection only merits a list, then I think we must be using Twitter for different purposes. I absolutely understand the DM issue. I just posted about immediate grounds for removal when an auto DM is sent for a follow. Anyways, glad to hear your opinion.
