New people join Twitter every day, from celebrities and religious figures to politicians and your Aunt Gertrude (and she’s following you).
But there are still some holdouts who would make the Twitterverse just thatmuch better with their presence. Can you think of a few folks who fit that description? TIME came up with a list – and we have a few to add.
Twitter wants to be more relevant to you. And in order to do so, they’ve started providing users with tailored suggestions of who to follow, rather than just a list of some of the most popular account.
Since not everyone loves Justin Bieber, this move should make searching for new, relevant accounts to follow a more pleasant experience for the average user, and Twitter’s hoping it increases the number of new users who stick around past the signup process.
@TwitterSuggests is an experimental feature from Twitter that began in January of this year, which helps users find interesting new accounts to follow. It does this by tweeting out who to follow suggestions that are personalised to the user and will appear in their @mentions folder.
It looks like a regular account, but is tied into an algorithm that generates suggestions of users to follow and sends them out.
@TwitterSuggests certainly isn’t shy about its recommendations – as of today the profile has sent out over 2.3 million tweets.
Checking out who other users are following on Twitter is a great way to find people to follow yourself. After all, there’s every chance that somebody you follow and respect is following even cooler people. And what about the people they are following – how cool must they be?
Problem is: how do you tell who other people are following?
Twitter is experimenting with rolling out a new way to find relevant people to follow, by adding a “Directory” tab in the top navigation bar just to the right of “Profile” and “Messages”. This gives prominence to the activity of finding new follows, and makes it easy to browse, search for, and follow users.
