I agree. Also, when I was on birdsite, I always wanted them to have what I called "streams. So for example a famous journalist could have a news "stream" and then say a personal opinion "stream" and maybe a sports "stream" and I'd just follow them on news, not the other stuff. Pinterest has this idea where you can follow a whole account or just one (or more) board, based on your interest.
