A number of people have asked us in recent weeks about the people listed on the Twitter suggested users list to follow…..
How did those people get on the suggested user list?
Why is so and so not listed?
Who determines the people that are listed?
and so on….
According to reports, Twitters suggested users list to follow will be going away.
Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said that Twitter will overhaul its “suggested users” list, which links Twitter users with a pool of about 500 celebrities, sports figures and politicians they might want to follow.
“That list will be going away,” Stone said at a conference in Malaysia. “In its stead will be something that is more programmatically chosen, something that actually delivers more relevant suggestions.”
Stone did not say what kind of service would take the place of the suggested user list but said it could be tailored to new users’ interests.
The one thing I like about Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone is that they are willing to make changes that people suggest to them for the betterment of the twitter community or for the individual user experience. Kudos to Evan and Biz.
What do you believe should be the criteria for suggested users list to follow on Twitter?
