Qwitter I Qwit You
Qwitter is a Twitter helper app. that sends you an email when one of your followers quits following you, with a copy of the post that sent them over the Twitter edge.
I signed up for Qwitter a few weeks ago, and it was pretty interesting seeing who stopped following my updates and for what kinds of Tweets.
Some quit following when I made personal comments or replies and others when the post pertained to information that just wasn’t in their area of interest. Some seemed quite arbitrary, sort of like if I just posted one more Tweet about FriendFeed they just couldn’t take it anymore.
Overall, it was an interesting experiment in what makes people un-follow, but it was distracting trying to analyze why particular Tweets set people off.
So Qwitter, I qwit you. It was a short affair and now I feel better about my Twiter relationships. I can move forward with my Twitter life knowing that the ebb and flow of following is going on without obsessing over the details. It’s better this way for both of us.
