Patio Tomatoes and side shoots

I am growing a couple of Patio Tomatoes this year and they are currently about 6" high. They are just starting to get side shoots at the base of each main leaf. I know you are supposed to remove most of the side shoots on a climbing tomato, but do you need to do the same for Patio tumbling varieties?
The two toms in question are Gold Nugget and Patio Orange
From my seed seller...
Gold Nugget Yellow Cherry Tomato Origin: USA
This open pollinated, bush type, cherry tomato was originally developed by the famous vegetable developer Dr. James R. Baggett at Oregon State University through breeding the Yellow Plum Tomato. Gold Nugget, also known as Golden Nugget, was first released to the public in 1983 and has been popular ever since. This tomato is perfectly suited for the climate of the Pacific Northwest United States and Canada, as well as other maritime climates. The Gold Nugget tomato is prolific producer of golden skinned, 1 inch diameter, globular to oval shaped tomatoes. The tomatoes are produced in prolific trusses on a small bush type, compact plant, making it ideal for the small garden. Nearly 75% of the tomatoes produced by Gold Nugget are seedless, crack resistant and feature a very sweet, flavorful and balanced taste. If the tomatoes are harvested continuously, Gold Nugget will out produce most other cherry tomato varieties and is ideal for use as a salad tomato. Determinate. Matures in about 55 days, which makes it one of the earliest tomatoes to produce.
Patio Orange Tomato Origin: unknown
The Patio Orange Tomato is a perfectly shaped, orange colored cherry tomato that is perfect for growing in containers due to their compact, but stocky vines. The plants feature a very good disease resistance and produce extrordinairy yields of bright orange globes that weigh 2 to 4 ounces each. These lovely little tomatoes are very big on taste and feature a delicious, sharp, sweet taste. Patio Orange is an ideal tomato variety for those with only a balcony, a small patio, a small plot or only windowboxes for growing space.
Determinate. 52 days.

Suckering tomato plants is a personal choice. Some swear by it. Some swear at it.
Personally, I think it/s a waste of time.
