I've been on Twitter forever, but you'd never know it by the anemic number of people who follow me and whom I follow. One thing I've never done is follow celebrities. Not sure why, and it's not like I have a policy against it, but I've just never been interested in what famous people have to say in 140 characters or less. Hence I was surprised today to learn that some of my childhood heroes are active on Twitter. People like two Redskins from the golden age (1980s) who are now in the NFL Hall of Fame, John Riggins and Darrell Green.
Yep it's interesting that they're out there, but not interesting enough for me to follow them. It's not them, it's me. I like to follow people who link to interesting information or are active in my (physical) community so there's simply nothing of interest that these two or most other celebrities will write that will be of any interest to me at all. I'm also afraid that if I start following celebs I'll never get anything done.
