Google Testing A Twitter Follower Finder Tool
A month ago in this space, I wrote up a a fairly lengthy article — How To Find The Right People To Follow On Twitter — that listed numerous tools and tips for finding the the right Twitter users to follow. Google, which wants to be involved in pretty much any search-related activity you do, wasn’t mentioned.
It’s based on Twitter’s @anywhere platform and, like many similar tools out there, it analyzes your following/follower lists and compares them to the lists of people who follow many of the same accounts.
It seems to be very much a beta product: Two of the first five accounts in “Tweeps you might like” are people I’m already following, and all five under “Tweeps with similar followers” are accounts I’m following.
