How Many Of Your Followers Actually Know Like And Trust You?

Ok, so I'm going through my twitter account yesterday, trying to make a list of people who I can honestly say that I'm "friends" with. It's still an ongoing process. But I expect that by the time all is said and done, my "friends" list will encompass well south of 10% of the total amount of people that I follow. Now maybe, just maybe, this says something about me ... However, I strongly suspect that my personal experience is well within the norm. So why does this matter? Well for one thing, if I'm going to click a link ... and especially if it involves a potential purchase ... guess who's links I am mostly likely to click on? Ding, Ding, Ding. The correct answer is ... the people who I already Know, Like and Trust. And especially when it comes to something like twitter, if I'm going to make a list of people who's Tweets that I might actually, you know, READ ... guess who I'm most likely to put on it? Which brings me full circle ...
