I do understand the concern that many have voiced. Many now view Follow Friday as "spammy" because many just put lots of names in a tweet. There is a point to this criticism. People should be more creative and targeted in their Follow Friday tweets. Yes, this is true.
But at the end of the day, I'm not going to tell someone how to construct their tweets. I'll show them how I do it. If asked, I'll even give advice. But for many, it's simply harmless fun. And one must remember: its a recommendation, a stamp of approval, if you will, for all that are fortunate to be included.
I suspect that Follow Friday will continue, as Twitter itself evolves and matures even more. It should always be apart of the fabric of the Twitter-verse!
