When Twitter exploded in popularity over the past year it was largely because of the celebrity influence on the micro social networking site – not it’s ability to welcome new users. For those unfamiliar with Twitter (as most new users are) it was difficult to find people that you genuinely were interested in following.
However, Twitter has just launched a new tool that suggests who to follow in 20 different areas/topics. This allows users to finally an easy way to locate interesting people in the topics they’re passionate about.
While almost most of the recommended Twitter handles aren’t people (or businesses) that are going to follow back and engage in conversation, it does help get new users acquainted with Twitter.
