Everyone needs to decide which method works for them. Whether to continue following someone afterward, based on content they share - as you do, or as I do - deciding beforehand, the same criteria applies. People who recommend the works of others, and share tools, tips, views, late-breaking news, and social media articles, always capture my attention, and are worth a "follow".
Of all the social networking sites, I have found Twitter to be the most valuable one for gathering information relevant to your industry, company, or organization. Most of the articles I've authored, and blog posts I've created, have benefited greatly from the valuable content that people I follow - industry leaders, career coaches, and other professionals have shared on Twitter on a regular basis.
Alicia, thanks for comments, and sharing your ideas on how you manage who you "follow" on Twitter. - Daulton

Great points, they’re very helpful. You mentioned, "Resist the need to "follow" or "friend" everyone who sends you an invite." I'm still testing the waters where that one is concerned. I made a decision a while back to follow anyone who'd follow me with a few exceptions (profane, obscene, abusive, offensive, objectionable language). Over time, as I monitor my tweet stream, I decide if I will continue to follow based on the information that's being shared by the individuals I followed. Basically, you're innocent until proven guilty by my standards. So far, I haven't had problems with my method. My circle of information/inspiration has broadened as I've allowed myself a glimpse into areas/topics I'd never venture into before, but I connect with caution. Thanks for sharing.
