It was fascinating to see how fast people were following Bill Gates on twitter. I was curious so to get an idea of how fast his network was growing, I tracked the number of followers every minute for about 40 minutes or so. Here is the result. He already had over 30,000 followers when I started this at around 4:17pm Pacific Standard time. By 5pm, he had over 57,000 followers. He was adding about 622 followers per minute!
At the time of this post, he surpassed 67,000 followers.
