Is there a difference between 'following' someone and being their friend?

Nope. When you follow people and vice versa, they're referred to as both your "friends" and "followers." Better than "stalkers", eh? ;)

psychopaths and mystery writers.

I'm the kind that pays better.

Although do know that following isn't mutual. The old system saw others having to accept the friend request, while now you can follow whoever you want and they don't have to return the favour.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.
