Contextual reputation metrics

I received an invite to connect from a friend - this time from TripIt - the online travel organizer (which I love).

Presumably to encourage me to accept, the invite includes the phrase
X has traveled 31,102 km to 9 locations

Well that's good, cuz there is absolutely no way I would friend-up with anybody below the 30k threshold.

Vertical networks like TripIt of course have an advantage over horizontal networks in being able to offer such metrics  - all they have to offer is # connections.

So the question is, "what's the magic metric to get you to follow me on Twitter? "
