I am going to do some cool artsy thingâ¦and I am not artsy. I did some cool collage and posted it. I thought this is my big reveal, I have arrived. I am going to make a public account, people are going to follow me. But people started unfollowing me."
He shared that he had 800 followers when his account was private and it shot up to 20000 when he made it public. However, when he posted a carefully thought our collage his followers came down to 500.
