Twitter "Suggested User" List Scrapped [google.com]
Social-media site Twitter plans to scrap its hand-picked list of "suggested users" after controversy erupted over the selection of people on the list, a company executive said.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said the company was seeking a more systematic way to introduce its prominent posters, including sports figures, celebrities and politicians, to newcomers to the site.

"That list will be going away," Mr Stone told reporters on the sidelines of a conference for young entrepreneurs in Malaysia's capital, Putrajaya. "In its stead will be something that is more programmatically chosen, something that actually delivers more relevant suggestions."

That list propelled a lot of accounts. Without it they may fall off the radar. It will be interesting to see whether this will bring about a new Twitterati. ;)
