If you have about 45 seconds available, please complete this 1 question survey about why you would unfollow someone on Twitter Update: the original survey is closed. If you have…well, more than 45 seconds available, please take the survey created from the results of the first survey. Thanks!

For this survey, I’m asking you to […]

Here’s the next step in the process of transforming Fauxlowers.com from mildly entertaining to actually useful: tagging. You can now tag your profile with terms that describe you and use those tags to search for other members with the same tag (hint: people you may want to follow on Twitter). And if another member hasn’t […]

I’m an avid reader of Daniel Scocco’s DailyBlogTips.com, but today, I have to boo.

Boo! Boo! Boo!

Today, Daniel’s post titled Looking To Get More Twitter Followers? Then Check Twitfever.com announced a membership site featuring, among other things:
