This is a very informative write up on social media interactions.
LOLJK, it isn't.
Studies by the Oinkoo International University for Social Media Research have revealed that *only 1% of your followers actually read your genuine queries on Twitter. Out of those 1%, only half will respond to your question. Out of those half, only 1 will be a useful response. That 1 response is something that you already knew before asking the question or most probably didn't want to know.
(*valid only for people with **>800 followers.)
(**I made that up, yes.)
Here is an example:
My friend is going back to the US after 2 days. I want to gift her something cute and useful. Pls to suggest.

I put up a question to ~ 7k followers with three things in mind:
> Most of them are not bots because I don't remember doing a LoKarLoFollow act. (How many of you know that? *wink wink*)
> At least some of them have time for real life interaction with real life friends apart from that dog, pig or squirrel on the other side of the screen.
> So many people. So many suggestions. So much yay!
And look what happened!
@Oinkoo had you not said useful also I would have suggested go with her
