That's amazing, thank you. I asked the community to track top
and several have done it. Lots of talent here.

Did you see my friend, @humancell's TopFollowFriday?:
Why doesn't Twitter use THIS list to suggest new friends to new users? This is a much better list than the one Twitter has. -
When I pulled the list this morning I was shocked how few of the "twitter elite" were at the top in recommendations.
Brian: that's because everyone already follows the Twitter elite and they don't use Twitter in an interactive way. Plus, the engagement just isn't there. Look at the followers of anyone in the top 100. They are largely lame followers that never tweet. Now look at the followers of anyone on your list. Completely different. Much more engaged. Of course those kinds of people will get more recommendations. I sure like following people who are engaged more than I like following brands or one-way marketing things -
That's why most of those elite are so popular - they're the "default" in most apps users add. I agree Robert - a list like this would be much more useful. Why Twitter doesn't just acquire one of these apps is beyond me. -
I'm completely with you... but you knew that. Couple more interesting factoids (note - I started collecting on follow Friday at 9:57:47 pacific, stats are through midnight pacific on Friday): There were 12850 tweets. There were 974 Re-Tweets. 5089 replies. -
Jesse: because Twitter is using their list to make sure that newbies see lots of Hollywood stars and brands that they might like. They think that'll get more newbies to engage. I don't agree, but that's why I don't run one of these companies. -
BTW, whats interesting is that
started on 1/16/09 with 2 recommedations. Now 6 weeks later its 32,000. Thats amazing! -
