Follower suggest section in Twitter.
Is Twitter going Facebook way ?, well i don’t know if its a proper question at this point of time, but twitter now a days is featuring a new section called “Who to Follow”. Its very much similar to Facebook suggest tool People You May Know.
Twitter “Who to Follow” is using a very powerful suggestion algorithm according to the twitter blog. It display users of you interest based on different criteria like followers of you friends and their friends so on. And it also shows all twitter verified users too.
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.

Along with this you could also find recommendations of an account when you go through any user profiles or a user could recommend multiple accounts he is associated with.
This clearly says twitter in recent days have started to role out few cool stuffs from their sandbox and we could see more such features in the coming days.
