Apparently Twitter has gone out of their way tonight (that start is just not well-written) and released the “Who To Follow” page to the public. The URL is accessible to any Twitter user, but only a few thousand as it seems get access to the tab, which either has the name of “People”, “Who To Follow”, or “Directory”; the latter is what I see in my account @stefanetienne.
The main purpose it seems of this new trick up Twitter’s wing is to find users that you want to follow, calculated by the tweets you publish, for example tweets I’ve made about gaming have directed me to companies like Bungie and Machinima commentators like MuzzaFuzza, as well as the users that you follow and follow you.
Although most of these tools had already existed in past forms, this particular incarnation is different from all the others, because it completes the new site design and integrates deeply with one thing: getting you to be more active on the site by finding more accounts that are related to your interests.
But it’s a great idea.
