Twitter followers

On the right hand side of the Twitter page is a few dozen images of people followed.  How is that list of people “decided”?  On mine is Biz Stone @biz who I guess was the first person to have a Twitter account.  He is followed by Blaine Cook @blaine the chief engineer for Twitter who I understand is account number 3.  He is followed by @jaygoldman then @johncabell from Wired, @blamb and @jemstone. Only Brian and Jem follow me.

I didn’t follow them in that order, it’s not a hierarchy of the number of their posts nor the number of followers they have.

It’s really not important – just wondering.

Anyone know?
