Back in late November, we bemoaned Al Gore’s lack of Twitter updates compared to the massive following he had with just over 22,000 people. Since then, his popularity has absolutely exploded — rising to over 183,000 followers with only 12 updates. That’s about 23,000 followers per update since November!

The people are flocking, but they’re obviously not along for the ride because the former Vice-President has a lot to say!

This meteoric rise in popularity places Gore in the Top Ten on Twitter — alongside such folks as Britney Spears, Barack Obama, and The NY Times.

As I said before, I really hope Gore takes advantage of this massive following to point out green ideas, products, websites, or initiatives. I’m not expecting him to Tweet everyday, but such power in the social networking world can definitely be used for good!

(You can follow Ecorazzi’s twitter page — and help us reach Gore’s number by the time we’re 90 — here.)
