Twitter has just announced another new feature today which is that’s its going to add suggested followers in your time,this currently was available when you do decide to follow people you would be presented with a list of suggestions and move on from there..This will either annoy people of chuff them off,so far it seems the latter…However you can adjust your settings by going HERE of late you probably have noticed many promoted tweets,this also has annoyed some and some find it useful..This is also an option available on Instagram.

How does Twitter find accounts to suggest?
Twitter’s suggestions for “who to follow” or “people you may know” are based on an algorithm that makes personalized suggestions for you. You may see suggestions based on criterion such as:
- If you’ve uploaded your contacts to Twitter, we’ll suggest you connect with those who already have Twitter accounts.
- If someone has uploaded their contacts to Twitter, and your email address or phone number is included in their contacts, we may suggest you follow them.
- E mail contacts if you have uploaded them.
- Twitter may also make suggestions based on your location, e.g. the city or country you are in.
