Twitter has got more than 100 million active users presently and every twitter user wants to follow users in a specific niche. But finding relevant twitter users was a big problem till now as there was no tool from twitter that could find users with similar interest. To address this problem Twitter has rolled out a nice feature named “Suggestions For You” that greatly helps twitter users in finding users with similar interest.
Twitter wrote the following about this feature on its official blog:
With more than a hundred million users on Twitter, there are sure to be at least dozens of accounts out there that will reflect your interests. The trouble is finding all of them. Today we’re beginning to roll out a simple, but powerful new feature to help address that — “Suggestions for You”. The algorithms in this feature, built by our user relevance team, suggest people you don’t currently follow that you may find interesting. The suggestions are based on several factors, including people you follow and the people they follow. You’ll see these suggestions on Twitter.com and the Find People section. If you like a suggestion, click “follow”; if you don’t, click “hide,” and we’ll try not to suggest that user again
To get started with this suggestion feature click on the Find People link in the top navigation of any twitter page and then click on the Suggestions For You tab which will list all the twitter users suggested by twitter to you . The twitter suggestions also appear on your twitter homepage (See the screenshot on the left). The user suggestions made by this tool are based on people you follow and the people they follow. To me this feature is really a great one as it helped me find more than 20 twitter users, in just one day, that are having quite similar interest as that of mine.
I am sure this is definitely going to help you a lot in finding users with similar interests. Also one more thing that worths a mention is that you can also find the twitter users on the basis of different area of interests like Technology, business, entertainment etc. To browse twitter users on the basis of their interests go to this link. Click on any of the interest and twitter will show you up a long list of users whom you can follow.
