Twitter's suggestions for who to follow

Twitter can help you find accounts to follow by directly recommending new accounts that may be of interest to you. If you see a recommendation that interests you, click on the username to see more information or to follow that account. Read more about following here.

How to find and use suggestions for who to follow

  • Suggestions will appear on the left side of your Home timeline, the Notifications and Discover pages, and the Me page on Twitter.
  • Below is an explanation of which types of suggestions show up where.

Suggestions on your home, Notifications, and Me pages:

  • On the left side of your home page, as well as the Notifications and Me pages, you should see a few recommendations of accounts we think you might find interesting in the Who to follow box. These are based on the types of accounts you're already following and who those accounts follow.
  • Click the X to dismiss any suggestion. A new suggestion will appear automatically.

Suggestions on the Discover page:

  • On the Discover page, you will see recommendations for accounts you may find interesting in the Who to follow box. These are based on the types of accounts you are already following and who those accounts follow.
  • For even more suggestions, click on Who to follow from the menu on the left. The list of suggested accounts is based on the types of accounts you are already following and who those accounts follow.

How do I get Twitter to suggest my account to other users?

  • Twitter's staff does not editorialize which users show up in suggestions.
  • Twitter search uses an algorithm that determines highly personalized suggestions based on the accounts you currently follow, the accounts followed by the users you have chosen to follow, and how other users express interest in Tweets sent from these accounts.
