One of the “cool” factors for many on Twitter, and many other social networks, is the ratio of how many people they follow compared to how many people follow them. Now numbers do mean good things in music; for example: spins on the radio, the amount of shows you do, how many people show up to see your act, how many people purchase your CD, how many downloads off of iTunes you rack up, etc, etc. My personal view on Twitter is that it should be about interaction with your followers and supporting them back. I take pride in knowing things about those that follow me, in interacting with them and in following them back! They are not just a number on a count! I appreciate that they want to see what I have to write, that they take time out of their days to say wuzzup my way and that they give me their opinions on my music. It is because of them that any artist including myself gets to where they are today. Their support is priceless! Thank you to all who share words with me, share their lives with me and who help me spread my music and message out to the world! You are truly appreciated and inspire me to be greater! It is not about quantity it is about quality! Fellow artists please respect your supporters, aka your followers, for they are the eyes and ears that you cannot succeed without!
