If you’re on twitter, then you are more than likely aware of a little weekly twitter habit that people take part in on the network. Each Friday, people share and recommend other twitter users to people and take the recommendations as #followfriday or #ff
I’ve found quite a few great people to follow through this weekly twitter ritual. It’s an interesting phenomenon because the recommendations are usually right on. My own preferences and twitter habits mean that I pretty much only follow someone that I’m truly interested in hearing from and trust for a variety of reasons.
The challenge for me is to think about who I should recommend to my other followers as my own #followfriday recommendations. That’s where the Auto Follow Friday tool comes in.
Auto Follow Friday is very straight-forward. You enter your Twitter username, there’s no need for your password, and based on your twittering habits, the application will recommend a handful of other twitterers that you tweet most based on your previous 100 tweets.
What better recommendation than those people I’ve talked with most recently? I think to expand the tool it would be interesting to select different people based on different criteria on successive weeks.
