Unfollow Monday was invented by Patrick Gilmore of Stargate Universe as an amusing follow-up to Follow Friday.
The fans took it one step further and organised a secret mass unfollow of Patrick which included fellow crew/cast members and even Patrick’s brother!!
While he did discover the secret unfollow before the event it was quite amusing & @imwebgurl will periodically organise Unfollow Mondays of Stargate cast and crew.
“@PatrickGilmore - I didn’t think the “secret” #UnfollowMonday Coup would have an effect…. -30 followers later I cower corrected. Hoisted by my own petard.
@PatrickGilmore - I caught wind of the #UnfollowFriday backlash last Tuesday. A random cryptic tweet set my Spidey senses off. I’m too sly. Nice work y’all.
@PeterKelamis - @PatrickGilmore checking his Twitter account this morning… http://tweetphoto.com/20026063 Nice work everyone!!!
@PatrickGilmore - My brother, @Scott_Gilmore, called and asked when he was allowed to follow me again on Twitter. My own family?!? Really? #UnfollowMonday”
@PatrickGilmore - Dear Benedict Arnolds, Today I have more followers than before your coup began. My memory is long & my fuse is short. #UnfollowMonday Haza!
@IvonBartok - #UnfollowMonday @PatrickGilmore - So crazy, he invented it, and I used his powers against him. Who’s next? I like this.
@PatrickGilmore - Damn, do a search for #UnfollowMonday. I may have started something here. My Spanish brethren really embrace the concept. Next week’s a Go.
You’ll find out about it through Direct Messages on twitter. Just unfollow on Monday specified Vancouver time & refollow later in the day.
Its a bit of fun & usually victim gains followers after event ;)
