One way to follow other Twitter users, and remain completely detracted from the media site, is to.....
If you are using Twitter, solely, for the social effect, then this idea does not apply to you, but if you use Twitter simply to stay updated with new tweets of others, then this method is highly recommend.
This technique allows you to stay updated on new posts without having to sift through the vast number of new tweets that show up on your Twitter timeline, especially if you follow a lot of tweeters. Also, visiting various websites can seem overwhelming with ads or navigation of pages. Most blogs have an accompanying Twitter account which they post to, whenever a new blog post is created. This method of bookmarking their Twitter pages works efficiently at staying updated with who you would normally follow. Now, granted, you will not get the real-time following effects that show up on your timeline, as you would with being a true Twitter user, but you simply need to click through the folder to stay current with new posts from the tweeter of your choosing.
Another way to use Twitter, somewhat anonymously, is to lock your account so that only your followers can see who you follow, who is following you, and what you post, but even this may make it appear that you are one who tends to hide things. It may also be intimidating and time-consuming when you have to make a decision whether or not to accept someone as your follower.
