Qualifications, experience…followers?

Two friends I follow on twitter have recently joined an existing web business and quickly started using their personal twitter accounts to promote the employer’s various marketing activities.

Now I’ve got no problem with them doing this…except that I find it rather boring and just a bit forced. It feels like there’s a trend building that people are expected to use their personal twitter accounts to tweet or retweet their employer’s or client’s messages.

If this continues, will the number and quality of your twitter followers become an important asset to include in your CV?
