  that's how i've done it.  when people start to follow me, i check
out their latest few dozen tweets.  if they interest me, i follow them
back.  if they don't, i don't.  if i follow them and they eventually
bore me to tears, i *un*follow them.  i have the power.

  and then there are the follows strictly for the entertainment value,
like http://twitter.com/FakeAPStylebook.
