On the 4th of March my twitter account hit 2,000 followers. Today's entry is for the 8th. After four days of being around the 2,000 mark I've become irritated with the constant fluctuations. A less memorable number is easier to forget about. If it's 2,000 you notice when four or five people click 'unfollow' because they like the Royal Family or whatever. I think your ideal number would be around the 1,800 mark. It's easier to forget about it.
