We are slowly getting there and, as I've posted earlier in this conversation, this is exactly the problem we are trying to solve at scale:
We think that what people really want isn't to "follow" a person like they do everywhere else, but to see that person's content above the noise in topics you are both interested in. For example: show me interesting conversations on topics I follow from people I like first. That is a complicated problem to solve at scale, but we are slowly trying to get there.
