In looking at some of the people I follow on Twitter, I'm impressed and intrigued by the number of followers they have accumulated. Then it dawned on me that perhaps there's a way to make some money by selling access to your twitterati. Suppose you wanted to gain some insight into what David Meerman Scott's followers had on a PR or Marketing idea you had. For a price and maybe a $ on the hash tag you would be permissioned to survey his list. Same could go for someone who wants to know what David Pogue's followers have to say about a new gadget or device.
Is anyone doing this now? Do you think it is similar to the panel business that market research firms have built?
