Twitter ‘Who To Follow Feature’: I Would Rather Follow the REAL Walt Mossberg


I value using Twitter not only as a social media tool but as a way to interact real time with an engaged community.

So I end up spending lots of time each day on Twitter.

I read about the new “Who To Follow Feature” and was curious to try it. Suddenly it appeared on my Twitter screen – so I was excited to view the recommendations. Here is one recommendation that popped up:

Being a tech snob, of course I already follow the “real” Walt Mossberg and leave puppets to shows that my kids watch. At the same time I realized that I was – of course – already following Walt Mossberg so maybe it is good to diversify with some puppet Twitter accounts. Hmm…

I see that The Bloggess was referred to a shrink but Virginia DeBolt posted on the BlogHer site that she did find some good recommendations via the Twitter “Who To Follow” feature.

I am on the fence, I currently find more value in searching my favorite tweeps’ Twitter Lists. I wonder what other Twitter users think of the new “Who To Follow” feature?

Or maybe the Walt Mosspuppet will be the new Walt Mossberg so the “Who To Follow” feature also helps identify future trends?
