A distributed social network must not let number games be the primary reputation. Any such system will fall apart when these metrics fail. Instead, reputation needs to be modelled by identity management and knowledge about the community itself. Discovery should be ranked by relevance and not follower counts.
Sometimes these accounts provide running commentary as well on the lolcow developments, like ESPN anchors at a football game.
Certain accounts on the birbsite exist mostly for aggregating together lolcow amusements. As in, they provide up-to-minute coverage of the latest lolcow antics and lolcow feuds. Of course there is also a lolcow in each of us that wants to get out and moo, but some give in to this understandable internet urge on a more or less permanent basis.
Hence the existence of accounts that get followers mostly as aggregators of such permanent moo'ing.

@bartleby485 Dreyfus kept on clowning himself by saying computers couldn't do X or Y (which of course they would go on to do), ironically playing into same sort of behaviorist logic he kept criticizing. Daring the rat-keeper to teach the rat to do new things in the skinner box, imho. Would have been better if he stuck to making critiques of underlying assumptions behind these sorts of tests of ability.
