Since the beginning for 2009, I’ve been ‘following’ 1 Dunbar of people on Twitter.
Since not everyone in that 150 posts at the same frequency, things are pretty quiet (arguably a good thing). I’d like to add a few more of you to the mix, but I don’t know who.
So, I thought I’d put the question in your hands while simultaneously putting a price on the attention I’ll be giving you 1.
If you’re on Twitter and I’m not currently following you – and you’d like me to – I’m asking $5.

I absolutely love this concept. BUT, what if I’m already in your monkeysphere? Do I owe you a beer or something?
So if I quit following you, do I get $5?
Mark, this is about my attention….not yours 😉
Greg, of course you’re welcome to…um….how do I say…solidify your place in my attention-space.
I dig it. You simultaneously maintain control of your attention and pre-establish yourself as a premium content provider. But does this mean that you are now accountable to the “shareholders” of your attention. If I’m paying you to listen to me, I’m going to want you to be critically engaged in what I’m saying. What do you think?
Erik – you’ve nailed it exactly. Obviously, I have an incentive to be more engaged to my shareholders.
Now I’m confused. How do I get $5 out of this?
i’ll give you $5 if you stop DMing me…
What’s ze frank’s DM? I sense a money-making opportunity here….
I am honored that you are already following me. Thank you… now, how about $5 so that *I* don’t stop following *you* ?
