I've had Twitter for a couple of years now and while I follow 400+ people or things I'm interested in, I've dropped others for various reasons. Some I lost interest in, some annoyed me, some I just didn't find entertaining or worthwhile like I thought I would.

On the wrestling front, one of the best decisions I ever made regarding Twitter was unfollowing @MATTHARDYBRAND and @JEFFHARDYBRAND. Jeff never posted anything coherent and Matt is... Matt. I say that in the perjorative sense. I also dropped their buddy @ShaneHelmsCom; I gradually found him to be pretty irritating as well. Losing the Carolina connection made my personal Twitter better and I've never looked back.

I also dropped Joey Styles. Styles disappointed me. I figured he'd at least be funny, but I found his Twitter obnoxious. He's kind of a dick, and not a funny kind of dick like Taz can be on Twitter. I also got rid of Eric Bischoff. Talk about a dick.

For celebrities a notable guy I unfollowed before he disappeared from Twitter was James Franco. Again, I figured Franco would be interesting, and this was before his Oscars-hosting debacle. He's usually up to a lot of different stuff, and I figured like a few other actors, he might have interesting stuff to say, but he didn't ever say anything. All he ever did was post links to photos he took without context.

So, who have YOU Unfollowed on Twitter?

Kevin Smith goes on these rants where he does like 20 tweets in a row. A little much.

Word. I dropped Kevin Smith a long time ago. I found I outgrew him around the turn of the millennium and following his Twitter confirmed it.

You could probably count the accounts I've unfollowed on one hand.

The only real sin you can commit with me is tweeting a hype link to the same content multiple times. (TheDalyPlanet, JustSayRay, Lagana - well, Lagana for a few reasons but that was the big one)

I did unfollow Roger Ebert because he was way too obsessed with Sarah Palin. Dude reviews movies. I am totally uninterested in his politics (...which for the most part seem not match my general world view). Fortunately, everybody just retweets everything he says anyway so it's like he never left my timeline. :/

One musician caused me an involuntary unfollow when he blocked me. He didn't have much of a sense of humour about himself, I guess. (OK, I'll save you some time - it was @BT. Turns out he REALLY WANTED THAT GRAMMY!)

That was more than you wanted to know. Some day I'll write up why I'm following the 240 people I AM following, but I'll keep it on CRZ's World where it belongs.

Ditto. I got so sick of them.

Beyond that, there's not many people that I've unfollowed.
At least none that stand out in my mind enough to be mentioned.
Then again, I don't follow that many (45 or so) so I gues I'm kinda picky to begin with.

I followed Kristen Chenoweth for all of 12 hours. I didn't like tweets as "shopping is fun!" and "look at all the pink stuff!"



Am I in Horseville? Because I'm hearing nothing but naysayers!

Any timeline that is clearly just a PR person for someone I like (usually I don't follow them to start with but it happened a few times)

Someone who picked fights with someone else on my timeline I liked better (I kept the other person but unfollowed the first so I wouldn't see the arguments)

A few website/bloggers that linked to their article/blog entry of the day more than once every 6 hours or so (I don't mind if someone links at 6am, 2pm and 8pm-- but there was one that linked the same article 12 times in 6 hours.)

I dumped Alyssa Milano because she was retweeting every lost dog & cat anyone would send her.

I dump anyone who is a political retweeting machine for either side of the aisle. Please write something original.

and I dump most of the people who dump me
