Twitter's 'Suggestions For You' Recommends People You Should Follow

Just in time for Follow Friday, Twitter has just introduced a new feature, "Suggestions for You," that offers users personalized recommendations for people to follow on Twitter.

Twitter introduced "Suggestions for You" in a blog post:

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.

(See screenshots below)

When you view an account, you'll also be shown suggestions for other, similar accounts you could follow on Twitter.

The new feature resembles Facebook's "Friend Suggestions," which uses your information to recommend people you can "friend" on the social network.

Have you tried it out? What do you think of the new tool?
