Inveterate dabbler in business, travel, gadgets & life

Stephen Fry goes nuclear.

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.

  1. But you won't follow your own children on twitter… even after setting up their twitter account! looks like I cant send you direct twits as your not following me, so resorting to commenting on your blog to get attention… is this really the future of family life for the internet generation!
