So much on Twitter is frivolous or self-promotional.
Don’t follow people who are frivolous and self-promotional.
It can bury you in information.

Because people often use Twitter to react to events instantly, they can say some awfully stupid things, as Roddy White, the Atlanta Falcons receiver, did after the George Zimmerman verdict, suggesting in a tweet that the jurors ‘should go home and kill themselves.’
Don’t follow people who say awfully stupid things. Or Roddy White. No one likes the Falcons aside from MC Hammer. Follow MC Hammer.
