After a certain number of suggestions it's a bad system that only helps follow spammers. What I mean is, once you're getting towards three degrees of separation there isn't necessarily a lot you have in common with that person. I find that it's useful for discovering some interesting accounts, but after a while the suggestions are dominated by celebrities and big brands which nearly everyone follows, but the people in your interest group aren't necessarily any more likely to be following them than the general population is, (or the general population of your country, at the least).
Twitter could do a lot to refine this tool. Perhaps they should also consider throttling it for people who are already following more than a thousand accounts.
