If they happen to follow you back on various forms of social media then you’re already winning like a fifth of the battle. That means that they have some vested interested in you as a person and as a social media entity. Maybe they think you’re funny and like what you put out there. Maybe they secretly like your selfies and are as nervous to talk to you as you are to them. The last one’s a best-case scenario, so reign it in right now before your daydream turns into someone else’s day-nightmare. Whatever the case may be, you’re in a great spot if there’s a following back situation happening, so don’t go ruining it by getting weird with direct messages. This goes for both Twitter and Instagram. If they hit you up first, wonderful—play it cool. If they don’t, lay off. The last thing you want to do is come off as an overly eager new buddy just chomping at the bit for some one-on-one communication. It will happen when the time is right.
