CWG (thanks to Jonathan Bennett, and to Tom Hughes for doing the 
installation work) monitors our followers with a particular piece of 
software. Since December 2011, when CWG has been working on the Twitter 
account, our followers have nearly doubled, from 7,182 to 13,004. Thus 
far this year we've tweeted once every 1.66 days, slightly below the 
number of @googlemaps' public tweets, and precisely 100% above (more 
relevantly) @googlemapmaker's tweets. :)
