As I scroll through the statistics of the world's most "followed" Twitter users, I notice a trend. Those with the most dramatic differentials between how many "follow" them and how many they are "following" seems to track with how "prophetic" the person is perceived to be.
By my reckoning, here's the current list.
The Pope @Pontifex
The Dalai Lama @DalaiLama
Stephen Colbert @StephenAtHome
Marshall Mathers @Eminem
Kanye West @kanyewest
So do we now have a global statistics database to track the prophetic voice?
This left me wondering about an outlier: Dwayne Johnson @TheRock. But when you read through his tweets, a large percentage are actually motivational mantras. So far, the theory is holding up.
