    Develop criteria for whom to follow on Twitter.

    Determine Approach for Engaging with Twitter Followers: In addition to being a channel for health information dissemination, Twitter should also be used to engage your target audience in two-way interaction and communication. Examples of engagement activities include: Develop criteria for whom to follow on Twitter. Identify relevant partners, influencers, and federal, state and local agencies that are involved in and interested in your specific health topic(s). See Appendix D for recommendations. Share relevant partner and follower Twitter content on your Twitter profile. Develop a strategy for identifying and retweeting or replying to posts from partners and followers. Consider holding Twitter events. Twitter events encourage followers to participate in conversations about your priority health topics. See Appendix E for examples of Twitter events.

    Re: Develop criteria for whom to follow on Twitter.

    If we substitute "who" for "whom", what would "who" refer to?

    I take it to mean "Develop criteria for whom you can follow on Twitter". Does this work?

    I don't know what their criteria are, but I would think that you follow the people you're interested in.

    What does "whom" refer to?

    It's a who not a what.

    No. You could say whom you intend to follow.

    No. Try:

    who you want to follow

    Is there a way to use a modal verb ("may" or "might" or something) here?
