I would assume it's a similar theory to the facility that Facebook has.
Their suggestion system has a LOT of fundamental issues
I doubt it's as bad as that, maybe it's just not as complex as people assume. Without looking at the algorithm, we don't know, but I would assume the reason why the same people keep on popping up is because those people still match the criteria, and have not been followed yet. I would have thought there would be a random element involved, but then again, there may not be.
I wonder whether Twitter doesn't make it more advanced because they assume you will follow people based on the real world, rather than Twitter itself. I dunno though.
