It seems to be a pretty common social media strategy. I haven’t noticed this from the Anchoress because I follow her anyway, but there’s a Bowie fan page that’s done this to me on Instagram, and on Twitter I get regular follows/unfollows from Balham Life. I don’t find it annoying though, it’s easy enough to ignore. You can always block them if it really bothers you.

I was recently followed and unfollowed by Paul Draper of Mansun. No skin off my nose. I don’t even tweet anything on my account - or care about Paul Draper’s new music.

Paul and the Anchoress worked together on both their recent albums so I'm not surprised they use the same social media tricks!

People pay services to follow you to see if you follow them back again. I got followed by The Anchoress but I'm certain she's not sincerely interested in my odd pic of a manics gig interspersed by 500 photos of my tea

Paul Draper is so shit right now. An old man hanging onto the first Mansun album. That actually sounds like another band.

? K-Scope have just reissued AOTGL, so of course he’s promoting it. He’s going to play new songs from his second solo album on his next tour in Nov. As for old man, he’s 47, so bring on the Zimmer frame I guess?

Anyway. Random Manics thought: my stomach has been playing up again these last few days. I really really hope I’m going to be well enough for RFH on Tuesday.

I'm doing my Masters dissertation about how music fans use information, so if any of you would be kind enough to fill in my survey I'd really appreciate it! It's completely anonymous, and will only take you 10 minutes at the very least. And share if you can!
