So, someone I respect has followed me back on social media, and I was hoping to thank them directly. I can't really figure out how to word "Thank you for following me"/"Thank you for following me back"/"Thank you for the follow". What's the best way I can say this?
There's actually an article that kind of talks about this on zhihu, funnily enough. Their translation there is:
thank you follow me --> 谢谢你关注我呀！！！
They also have a picture of automated thanks for following me in action:
On social media 关注 is always the term for follow.
It could be 感谢大家(/你们)(长期以来一直)追随我、支持我!
感谢大家追随我: thank everyone/you for following me.
感谢大家支持我: thank everyone/you for supporting me.
感谢你们长期以来一直追随我、支持我: thank you for keeping following me and supporting me for such a long time.
感谢大家： thank everybody.
感谢你们： thank you.
长期以来一直： being for a long time;
追随我: follow me;
支持我：support me, back me;
