Finding the Best Follows On Medium

I’ve been noticing lately that the best follows on Medium aren’t necessarily people who publish a lot of original material themselves. But they are people who regularly recommend a consistently high quality batch of other people’s Medium articles. In other words, they are very good human algorithms, like, for example ☯ Brad Simpson ☯ or Gabe Kleinman.

There are others, but I always see these names popping up at the tops of my feed and interesting stories when I go digging.

One example

Because of this effect, I wonder if there’s a way to more prominently feature the “Has recommended” record of a user somehow while evaluating potential new follows. Here is mine:

Who are your best follows on Medium, strictly based on what they recommend?
