Twitter would be so much better if there were no public (or private, even) follower count. These are silly, meaningless numbers that we, because humans are insecure by nature, have started to see as somehow a measure of our net worth. They have taken an informative, fun and constantly evolving new form of media, and turned it into a competition. Everyone should use Twitter like they have a million followers, or they have zero. Just do whatever you want, people. Twitter is not a contest. Lord knows life has enough of those already.
