  1. The total number of followers has to equal the total number of followees. If most Twitter users are followers, then a few Twitter users have to be quite the followees. I wonder if they’re spammers or Scobles. To get a sense of whether these folk are “popular” we need to get some samples of people on either side of the boundary (maybe more than a standard deviation away, to avoid noise) and examine them.
