How about a follow?

I sometimes get this request. If we have met personally, in IRL, I sometimes acquiesce. However, unlike Facebook, Twitter is an asymmetrical interest graph, not a symmetrical social graph. Most of the people I follow are not in health IT and do not follow me. It is literally true that only about 10% percent of the 6K I follow, about 600, actually follow me back. While I think it is nice you follow me, I will not feel offended if you feel that since I choose not to follow you back, at least for now, that you chose to unfollow me. We both have our reasons and principles for who we follow, and I respect yours, and hope you understand mine.

I’m sorry. I’m happy to explain further if you’ll direct me to that part of my DM that I did not make clear.
