Best Selling Twitter Book Author Deletes All His Followers

The author of the world's best-selling book on Twitter has publicly changed his Twitter strategy by purging his account and resetting the number of people he is following to zero.

Joel Comm, New York Times best-selling author of Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time and CEO of Loveland, Colorado-based InfoMedia, Inc., has posted a blog entry explaining his reasoning to stop following nearly 70,000 people on the popular social media site.

"Twitter has never been more relevant than now", say Comm. "But with explosive growth comes a need to evaluate strategy and chart a course that best fits in with how I want to use the site. This massive purge allows me to refocus on how I may most effectively give to the Twitter community and still enjoy being involved"

In his blog entry, Comm details the history of his Twitter use, interesting people he has met along the way, the use of automatic Twitter follow tools and methods and reasons for purging an account.
