The scheme behind it is obviously that with more followers your tweets
will get more and more noticed. As Twitter is used a lot for
marketing, followers appear to be "key". But I believe more in quality
than quantity.

I was just looking at my web analytics, and noticed that one
particular post in our startup had been tweeted about by some Dutch
actor. Some 60 clicks came from his Twitter page, with an avarage
bounce rate of 72%. High, yes. But not as high as the other 70 clicks
from the Twitter homepage, which had a 92% bounce rate.

Conclusion: it's more important who tweets about you - and how many
people chose to take an interest in what that person has to tweet,
then to just get followers who don't even know what you(r product) are
(is) about.

(same counts for regular advertising; when BrandX says "our drink is
good", ppl tend to trust it less then when their friend says "I tasted
BrandX's drink, and I like it a lot")
