I know this is off topic but I just can’t help it. Like everyone else about half of my followers on Twitter are people with obscene numbers of follower/following counts. I just got another one today and it made me think of Jeff Foxworthy’s skit how to tell if you’re a redneck. Because let’s face it, SMDs are the rednecks of the Internet.
*Does your bio contain SEO, or Internet marketer? If so, you might be an SMD.
*Does your Twitter homepage background show piles of money? Yep, you guessed it, you might be an SMD.
*Is your Twitter bio written in all UPPER-CAPS?
*Does your face completely fill your Twitter icon?
*Are you smiling way to much? Then yes, you might be an SMD.
*For the love of Tim Berners-Lee do you not know that the Internet is capitalized? ( Okay, this is debatable but if you don’t understand the debate then, well, you do the math. )
*Do you comment on other people’s blogs even though you have no idea what the post is about just so you can get your name and link to your douchbag homepage out there?
*Do you have random inspirational quotes sprinkled throughout your Twitter-stream?
*And did you sign up for a service to insert those quotes for you? Yep, you’re a SMD.
*Do you tweet about doing cool things even when your sitting at home trimming your nose-hair?
*Do you follow people and then unfollow them a few days later if they don’t follow you back? And then follow them again, rinse-repeat? <- SMD, bigtime!
*Have you signed up for some service that automatically follows people for you to help get your follower count up?
*Have more than 100 people blocked you from following them? You guessed it, you’re an SMD.
*If you’re following me on Twitter and I’m not following you back. Good bet that you have SMD-like qualities.
Help me out. I’m sure there are a whole bunch more that we can add to this list.
