That’s the parting shot Nutshellmail encourages its users to throw at those who unfollow them on Twitter. Nutshellmail, by the way, is a Twitter application that sends me via email digests of my Twitter and Facebook friends updates. It’s cool in that it also reports new followers and individuals who unfollow me.
Unmitigated freaks. Bah.
You will have guessed by now. I’m a strong believer in tit for tat. I have no guilt unfollowing right back. I look forward to the maniacal glee of punching that unfollow button. Not exactly like guillotine chopping off heads, but in my mind that will have to do.
A celebrity blogger who I hold in the highest esteem unfollowed me.
Jesus Christ. What have I done to earn his distrust? I read almost everything he’s promoted. I know his children by name and “liked” them when their pictures show on his media updates. I read his blog religiously and leave comments the few times I feel confident to share my opinion.
Nutshellmail whispers, “Get back at him. Tell him he smells like cheese.”
I balk. A grown up man, am I not? I can live this down. This is nothing but a minor setback. It’s not as if we’re drinking buddies. I’d go on with my dignity intact. Easy choice.
But I have to preserve my sanity. Can’t afford a meltdown because of this tempest in a teacup.
So here goes: You are an insufferable peacock, sir. And you smell like cheese. With all due respect, sir.”
There. I felt better now.
PS: For the life of me, I haven’t got the nerve to unfollow my idol. He’s far too invaluable to let go. At least, that’s how I feel at this time.
