    Following 295 right now. Just went through and cleansed it yesterday. I can keep up with it most of the time. Many of the accounts I follow are companies or apps that don't tweet much.

    I've been tweeting for 3 years on my primary Twitter account (political) and therefore I follow 711 people and 678 follow me. The number of followers would be higher if my account wasn't protected. I approve the people who follow me. Anyway, I follow only a handful of people on my general account which I rarely check.

    Around 75. I'm not sure I can handle too many more.

    At one point I followed almost everyone who followed me (almost 2,000). I unfollowed a BUNCH and am down to following only 329. It's still too many. I don't read them all. I use TweetDeck and have columns for those people that are really important, and I still miss a bunch of what they say.

    But whether I follow you or not - if you mention me, I respond.

    I follow around 300 people and I try to read the majority of the tweets but I do miss a few of them.

    Following 130, followed by 144... I try to keep up, but it's not always easy. I guess I need to clean up the following/followed a bit.

    Only following 71 people right now, but that's b/c I once went over 100 and my TL got real nuts, real fast. At least this way I can keep up in a timely manner (and some of my friends only post occassionally anyway).

    I follow about 335 and have about 330 following me. I follow iMore people and any one from Auburn (sports). The rest is Politics/religion/news. It is hard to get through the TL but I don't stress over it. I get to it when I get to it.

    I follow 1785 and have 2750 following. Yes I probably don't have time to read everyone's tweets, but I enjoy always having a busy timeline.

    I follow about 170ish. I honestly try to read everything and respond when I feel necessary. I have about 193 followers which will probably decrease since I just protected my tweets a few days ago.

    I love finding new people to follow and really need to manage my lists better so I can keep up with people better. If I don't check my twitter feed all day (which is pretty typical), I can have 500+ tweets to catch up on.

    If you want to follow me (and I'll follow back), I'm @_heatherly.

    So far I've got about 500 I follow. A lot of those don't tweet a lot though, so it helps keep the amount of tweets I read under control.

    For me I follow about 77, and until recently hadn't taken the time to manage them with lists. I just did it yesterday after finally purchasing TweetBot, and realized how much easier it is to do it that way.

    Yes. Just get off it and don't look back. Ever.

    Tweetbot. Set up mute filters to filter out users and topics you don't really want to see, either temporarly or permanently.

    I only follow 60 people and most of them only tweet a few times a day (if at all) but there's one person who tweets a LOT, even though I enjoy reading their tweets I sometimes have to mute them for days at a time just to keep up with everyone else. I've also filtered out topics I'm not interested in - political keywords, sports teams, etc.
