Followcost is a great little application which works out the cost of following celebrities on Twitter. Here is the cost of following @stephenfry
It strikes me that celebrities are caught in a cleft stick, someone as popular as Stephen Fry has over 208,000 followers(The old Radio Luxenbourg radio frequency for us nerds 🙂 and is in turn following over 54,000 folks. This means that he can only respond to a minuscule portion of tweets without seriously overloading everyone’s twitter timeline and yet folks moan at him for not responding!
Think I will stick to just following a few folks that I know well 🙂 even with that I had to silence @scobleizer with his 22 updates a day!
Thanks to Gigaom for the link.
