Do you thank someone for following you on Twitter?

My morning inbox had Tweets from the Annie E Casey Foundation and Kids Count, two organizations I started following on Twitter earlier this week.  They were both thanking all their new followers, which made me wonder, “How many organizations thank all their new followers?” and “How many do it on Thankful Thursday?”

The answer to my question should of course be “Yes, I thank new followers” and building it into a workflow like “do it every Thursday” might eliminate the disruption of doing it every day, immediately, and it might drive the new followers back to the Twitter feed to see what they missed.

What do you do? What will you do differently?

A second great post from Jeremy Reis that will help us think about analytics, how to use Excel effectively, track progress and success.  Reis shows how to fairly easily track type of tweet, number of retweets, favorites, etc.. A little time consuming, but valuable analytics.
