Al Gore on Twitter – How About Something More

This is Al Gore’s Twitter Stream. Not a sample of his stream, the entire stream. 17,677 followers, following 1, with only 5 updates.

If you Tweet and are trying to decide if you should follow someone you typically look at their follower/following ratio. I like to see those two numbers pretty close, which signals engagement and that they are probably sharing valuable information. The number of Tweets is also a factor, but I don’t put as much stock in that. Instead I read the updates and see if it would help me, or my followers.

Of course there are always exceptions, and Mr. Gore is a big one. It’s of course tempting to follow him, but I think I’ll wait until he’s Obama’s Energy Czar. The content will be much, much better. Looks more like a promotion for Current. Not a bad thing, but it could be much more. But you gotta like the green sidebar.
