Who Needs “Who to Follow” Anyway?

I'm a pretty popular guy. I'm probably the only guy you need to follow on Twitter. In fact, I'm the only guy on Twitter. So why the heck do you need that fancy "Who to Follow" feature? I'm everything you need.

Before my head gets too big for these masculine shoulders, I must divert your attention to Steve Streza, who has derived another useful Twitter hack for hiding an unnecessary "Who to Follow" feature.

"...I happen to be very proactive in finding new people to follow through a variety of means, and have no need for Twitter to point it out to me. I thought it was a bit obnoxious to see, especially considering both of my first recommendations were people I had blocked."

If I wasn't already following every important human being as dictated by Engadget, then I certainly would have a use for this feature. Too, any lass with the charm and grace of @sofiafontes will promptly get my attention with a swift Follow and a gentlemen's reply.

Oh you so sure Twitter user, you need no one to follow. This Safari 5 extension is bound to save you from the distraction of no-good adversaries and terrible tweets. Follow Freely my friends.
