This goes to all of those "affiliated" or "follow me on Twitter and I'll get ya 20000 followers more".
I started to get bored of all those noisy followings on Twitter, Friendfeed and other networks by people who don't even care about what I'm saying. Yeah I know it's become a kind of a sport, like "how much followers do you have on X? What? Dude, I've got a few hundreds more!"
So, now what? Got rewarded with an olympic gold medal or hit a jack pot? I bet at least 80% of those 20k followers do the very same thing: follow anybody to get more followers. Doesn't it sound ridiculous? This is not the same as email spam where even 1% could get you finally hit it.
Now, that reminds me of nothing but a simple Pyramid, a "non-sustainable business model". Just a very few people at the very top of that pyramid made a couple bucks but that's it. Wake up people. I thought we were past this.
I don't want to complete any survey for 5$, follow a ridiculous Adwords seminar or do an "extra money" of that kind. The next "affiliated" follower goes straight to a blocked users list.
