This morning, I noticed that a Turkish columnist who started following me and who I followed back unfollowed me (tongue twister of the day:) Then I went to friendorfollow and saw that a couple of Turkish professors did the same. First they follow people, then people follow them back and then they unfollow people.
Is this a kind of a strategy???
If you are a public figure, I can understand that you prefer a one-way communication style (or whatever it is called) and people who are interested in what you say happily follow you without expecting to be followed back.
But I think this “follow-get followed-unfollow” strategy is so ugly.
What might be the reasons of this so-called strategy? What kind of psychology lies behind it?
