Twits on Twitter

The excellent Mumbrella site recently began a conversation about people you don't/shouldn't follow on Twitter.

Because of the limited space on Twitter, here's my list of those I don't follow, which really makes my paltry 58 follows lame. But I'm choosy.

1. People who use Twitter with the aim of building their business, simply by asking people for referrals. How dumb is that?

2. People who don't have a decent biography.

3. People who tweet during movies/TV shows.

Haha I'm the same with my list!

Although I do follow the odd charity or two (not that they come under the umbrella of a business), but only if their tweets contain good links and if they actually engage with people on Twitter.
