Who can beat Larry Ellison?

Can one measure ones popularity by the number of Twitter followers? What is the value of a tweet?

If a single tweet can attract 33,026 followers, you must be a really interesting fellow!

This enormous followers-to-tweets ratio (FTR) is what Larry Ellison, Oracle's Big Chief, can boast about. His entire tweet history even fits in a single popup frame. And interestingly, it's more SAP bashing than anything else. Or is this a very good hoax?

Just to compare: Barack Obama has over 20 million followers, but his FTR is not even 3k. Bill Gates is doing fine, his FTR is close to 14k. (My own FTR is far below zero!)
