What’s a good word for a person that’s being followed?
For example, a Twitter user can have many followers. Twitter refers to the users that another user is following as following, more in a verbal sense of the word.
@johndoe is following 283 users
What one word could be used as a noun to label those whom one is following? I thought of followee and a coworker came across guide, of which I’m not sure how it works.
