@zatnosk I will say sometimes I follow interesting people just for incitely posts. Not for.... any reasons of celebrity worship. More because they have good ideas and I want to hear more.


@aleph but if 1000 people follow the same person for insightful posts, then some of them are likely to start celebrity worshipping. And when that number grows to 10k or 100k, there's too many followers for that person to interact with, and without interaction the celebrity worshippers are more likely to stick around compared to non-worshippers.
