The TrstQuotient is an integer between 0 and 100 that quantifies the relationship between a user's Trstrank and their follower count. It indicates how "normal" a user's Trstrank is, given his number of followers. A very-low TrstQuotient can be a sign of a spammy or abusive Twitter account. More followers usually means a higher Trstrank, but it's possible for two Twitter users to have a similar Trstrank but vastly different numbers of followers. Vastly fewer followers for a comparable Trstrank says a user's followers are themselves pretty trustworthy which reflects back well upon the user. As an example, consider NY Times columnist and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner @NickKristof, who's able to score a impressive Trstrank of 7.29 with a meager 1 million followers. His TrstQuotient is 80. Compare him with in-again-out-again pop diva @BritneySpears whose horde of over 5 million followers grants her a Trstrank score of 8.07, only a little bit higher than @NickKristof. Britney's TrstQuotient is a meager 20. (Conclusions about the general trustworthiness of NY Times readers and Britney Spears fans left to the reader.)
