New to Twitter - Followers?

(1/2) > >>

So, I finally broke down and got a twitter account, so I can follow some public figures. I wasn't planning on ever tweeting, because this isn't about me. However, I got a notification that I am being followed (complete stranger). Am I now obligated to tweet?

No.  :)

That Anime Chick:
You're not obligated to tweet and you can block them if you don't want them to follow you. Just click on their icon and select block.

Spammers, scammers, and other ne'er-do-wells may try to follow as many new users as they can, in hopes that the newbie will automatically follow them back. Once that happens, the ne'er-do-well can send you a Direct Message (like a PM).

The Direct Message may have a link to a site that will capture your Twitter or Facebook password.  Or the site may put malware on your computer.

Thanks for the info. You know, it's funny, I worried that I should provide something for my follower to read, but it never occurred to me to follow back.  ;D
