We once made a podcast about the etiquette of following (and being followed) on Twitter. But it didn’t address this possibility:

Being retweeted by the American Nazi Party is a GOOD thing. It means that they're reading your tweets. Sure, they may be twisting your posts to their own nefarious ends, but they have to actually READ them. You'll turn them into rational people yet...


Publicly ask them to stop if you're that bothered, otherwise enjoy the extra people reading(?) your tweets via their RTs


I have the same thing with a few political twitter accounts. I'm wondering if there is some sort of SEO benefit and the following/internal retweets are an attempt to accomplish something similar to blackhat SEO.


Haha.. interesting fan club you have there.

Webmaster: there seems to be a problem with the links - couldn't get them to work. Thank you.


I wouldn't want to see my corporate entity logo on the same screen as the American Nazi Party (or anyone else associated with pure hate).

I'm fairly certain that Twitter allows you to block a person/account so they can't see you and you can't see them. This'll stop retweeting and anyone seeing a swastika and the freakonomics logo in the same place.

You don't want to be associated with Nazis, block them! Oh, before you do, tell them to FUCK OFF AND DIE :)
