Agreed, +Pete Meehan
. You don't go from "That was an interesting remark" to "That's an interesting person".
This is especially true when people use their Twitter accounts specifically to shill for companies. Even if you say something interesting, the "personality" behind the link (should someone bother to click it, and
should the site they're clicking to be optimized for mobile and
have a clear direction to an ABOUT page, including people's pictures and
assuming that there aren't several people on that page, so you don't know which one of them wrote the interesting remark) isn't obvious, and there's no reason to follow A PERSON because of one luck-shot remark they made that you happened to read one time.
Those cutesy background pictures down the sidebar with non-clickable URLs doesn't help Twitter either.
