Twitter Helps You Follow Accounts With Shared Interests

Written by MedNet staff
April 28, 2011

Twitter has offered users a 'suggested users to follow' feature for a number of months. Now they have expanded upon this feature, integrating suggestions based on interest. They have also introduced a more advanced search function that has a similar focus on user interest.

How Twitter's New 'Suggested User By Interest' Feature Works

  • This update applies to Twitter's 'Who To Follow Page'
  • Twitter takes note of your search queries and suggests users who share those interests.
  • In order to determine if you would like to add any of the suggested users, you can click on the avatars and view their profiles
  • How Twitter's Interest-Based Searches Work

  • Previously, Twitter's search function would only search keywords in a user's ID name. This former structure made it challenging for individuals to find other users with common interests because many people use their full name or their business name as their ID.
  • You can browse through the search results that appear instantaneously
