Do you think people read tweets? I mean, what does it matter if I post a tweet, it will probably never be read?

I read nearly 100% of the tweets of the people I follow when I'm awake and on the computer. I have them setup to pop-up on my screen when they're posted.

I follow all my followers back and right now I'm following 12000+ people. So answer to your question is NO. But I make a list of people i care about and read their tweets when ever i get time.

Why do you follow people back? Whats the point? Why not just follow people that you care about reading tweets from? -_-

I send welcome DM to everyone when they follow me. I use socialoomph.com to automatically follow my followers and send DM's to occasionally.

I consider that spam...

That looks like a complete waste of time. That's like trying to add everyone on Facebook, even though you don't know them.

Yes, People read Tweets. They don't press the Retweet button randomly. :)

Do my followers read my tweets when I posted my tweets before they logged onto their Twitter accounts? I should think not.

You need stats. You could maybe have a website where you can get the number of visits you have. Then you just have to write some tweets about it on a day and see if the number of visits increases.

Well, if you have good and relevant content, with a basic strategy for reaching the audience you want - people will surely read it.

If people didn't read other people's tweets then Twitter wouldn't be functional at all and likely wouldn't be around. That being said, it's impossible to read every single tweet that's posted. I follow around 600+ people and I can't keep up with everything they're saying.
