More tricky Twitter notions

The picture above shows different types of networks for communication. A) represents the old idea of mass media where one central node supply most information. In reality it is true that some minor interaction can occur as well between the end users too - like when people discuss news. The model at C) is a distributed network and it is more like what is possible on social networks. B) is like a transition phase in between.

Last week we came out as the worlds fastest growing #Floorball tweeter on Twitter. That is nothing to brag about since still our numbers are petty. But it is our opinion that the distributed network as shown in figure C) is by far superior as we want to spread the word about Floorball. So one of the tricks we use to gain more followers is to avoid and unfollow all those twitter communicators on the floorball subject that build more old fashion centralized twitter networks around themselves. How do we know that? We do not - but we take the notion - if a twitter account is not following us back - well then they are most likely not building a distributed network. And thus we unfollow them.
We also communicate on twitter to say when we unfollow big Floorball twitter accounts. What happens doing this - as we unfollow others like this - we suddenly start to grow.
So why not follow our example - unfollow twitter accounts that do not follow you back and tell the world that you have unfollowed them?
Then of course we actively tries to follow a bunch of new people too - but not that very much..only as time allows.
Then of courze - we have used one additional little trick that have worked rather well. If you ask kindly we may share that trick too.

It is our opinion that the growth of Floorball on social media is crucial for the growth of Global Floorball.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
