Whenever I see a tweet promising gifts to the nth follower, I feel that the current followers of that account are mocked; at least I feel mocked as a follower. Wasn’t my “follow” click interesting enough? Have I not endorsed this user by following them? Have I not—in part—helped them achieve an increase in followers?
I don’t unfollow an account where promises for future followers are made, but their whuffie status decreases, at least it does for me!
