Hitting the Twitter Following Wall Sucks!



This evening I followed my 4001 person on Twitter while at the same time having 3623 followers. I had 4–5 more follow notices come in later in the evening and when I tried to follow them back I was denied.

I have been told in the Twitter stream that I have to have 4000 followers before I will be allowed to follow any more people. This sucks in a big way because I follow a large number of the podcasters on Blubrry and some of the listeners of my podcast and readers of this site.

I guess there is nothing I can do but sit back and wait but it’s not cool to not be able to follow anymore people and I would hate to remove people that are not following. Yes I can follow that many people through a variety of techniques including Yahoo Pipe Queries and Google Reader.

If you follow me @geeknews be advised I may not be able to follow back for a bit till I hit that 4k threshold. More on the podcast tomorrow night for sure
