The question "do you deserve your following" might sound a bit odd. After all, if it is a followerbase like on twitter that you have, people have the option to unfollow you once they feel mistreated. Nevertheless it is a good thing to stop and think about how you treat the people that follow you online. Yes, of course there might be real life friends and other contacts represented in your following, but quite often posts on how to deal with your following tend to lean towards "what do you get from it" side.
Thus I thought it was nice to come across this blogpost, asking how you really treat your followers. It's a sad thing really, that posts like these have to be made, but I do think they are necessary, even though the answer to what a "good way" to treat them is migth be easy.
