I don't like watching other people's arguments. If I wanted to do that, I'd go down to Ikea on a Saturday afternoon. So when I see people arguing with each other on Twitter, I tend to find it pretty irritating.
It's just a personal preference, and yes, I understand that there can be some fun to be had by a good old electronic virtual ding-dong - I should imagine for some people it's like cyber sex but without the happy finish. But it's not really my kind of thing. And I don't really like to play gooseberry while I watch a couple of other people going at it all afternoon.
Which is why, sometimes, I use the tactical unfollow for a few hours to let things breeze away. Think of it as a mute button for those times when you're having a row with someone else and I don't want to be the sad-faced kid sat at the top of the stairs, wondering whether mummy and daddy are going to be living in separate houses.
It's just a personal preference and I will follow back when the dust has settled and everyone's friends again. So don't go getting all hissy and blocking me because you think I've unfollowed you for another reason - and yes, this means you, Power, you tool - because that's all there is to it.
