Yet, those 775 accounts have the potential ability to reach up to 775,000+
("+", considering the number of retweets they each get) of Twitter's user
base. When they're dissatisfied, people hear.  IMO those are the ones
Twitter should be going out of their way to satisfy.  Add to that the fact
that many of those are the ones willing to pay the biggest bucks when/if
Twitter implements a business account, they could also be a contributing
factor to Twitter's revenue model in the future.  It makes total sense for
Twitter to support those ~775 accounts.  If they're ignored, they'll take
their followers with them.
