After looking at your location and your bio, I usually glance over to see your follower count and then look over to see how many people you follow.
1. If you have thousands upon thousands of followers, I assume you are pretty popular and that your posts are probably meaningful on some level.
2. If you have thousands upon thousands of followers but don’t follow anyone, I assume you aren’t completely invested in Twitter.
3. If you have 12 followers and don’t follow anyone, why did you bother to sign up for Twitter again?
4. If you follow more profiles than you have following you, I assume you are cool. Like me. Because all the cool kids follow twice as many people as they have following them.
