    Default Agency Following Me on Twitter WTF

    So an agency is now following me on twitter, not that I ever tweet anything (not from my "real name" account anyways)

    WTF is that all about

    They are interested in seeing what you have to say?

    They are stalking you?

    They are hoping that you might indicate when you are looking for work?

    They are hoping that you might mention that you are looking for people to work with you?

    Could be any number of reasons.

    They probably want to see who the OP is contracting with, then badmouth the OP to the client and steal the business. That's what I'd do.

    I block those people/organisations I don't want following me.

    It's easy to do and rather satisfying.

    Except that you've got a public Twitter profile, meaning that the "blocked" follower simply logs out of Twitter and can now see your entire timeline as an anonymous user.

    Unless they're using one of the many third-party apps/sites that will consume your public Twitter feed as an anonymous user and that app will notify them every time you tweet.
