    Seems logical, but now proven - it's not likely that people will follow you if you have no photo.  For people to make the jump from "interesting person" to "person I want to follow" they need to feel like they know who you are.

    I saw a recent study, posted on HubSpot, that analyzed 9 million Twitter profiles and found that users who have a photo tend to have 10 times the number of followers - see below.

    So for all of you Seeking Alpha users without a photo - now's a good time to upload one.  (In your toolbar, go to Settings / Update Picture.)
