Like all social media, Twitter can be a great way to keep up with your mates -- provided you're following them and they're following you. If somebody isn't following you back, he's clearly uninterested in what you have to say, in which case you may as well unfollow him. It's hard to have a conversation with somebody who isn't listening, after all. Whilst you can check if somebody is following you by attempting to send him a direct message, doing so can be extremely time consuming, especially if you follow a lot of people. Fortunately, many third-party applications exist to make the process easier; which you use largely depends on your personal preference.
