Whatever interesting thing it is share it.

That doesn't tend to happen with me for the reason: Most of my promotion views don't come from my followers, but from others that look stuff up on Twitter and find my tweets. My followers do help rank me up though, so they are important =) *Voted up*

Interesting. Voted up
