Mayor Daley is a leader. His critics might not like his methods or direction, but they have to agree he picks a path and plows forward.

The question: Who does Chicago's chief executive follow?

As ABC 7 first reported last week, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has launched a Twitter account (twitter.com/mayordaley).

As of this writing Hizzoner has 498 "followers" and he is "following" just nine people/organizations. They include the City of Chicago's website, the Chicago Department of Transportation, the Chicago Park District and his beloved White Sox.

The only two real people he follows on Twitter: Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
