We’ve introduced a new feature on the site: a map of all former Netherlanders. Check it out
For a while we used to refollow and unblock all former Netherlanders every monday morning. This is no longer the case. When a former Netherlander gets blocked he/she will remain blocked. This is done because some people were obnoxious, knowing they would be set free again the next week. We no longer wish to facilitate this behaviour.
As per week 6 2013, contributors of the @Netherlanders account are allowed to follow other Twitter accounts (back). This way they can have more interactions with other people all over the world. Until today only the former contributors were followed in order to have an overview of who had been tweeting for @Netherlanders. When contributors start following people other than these former Netherlanders, this overview will be disturbed. In order to maintain this overview, a Twitter list has been created so one can still easily check out the Former Netherlanders.
