dc.description.abstract This paper examines an application for finding pertinent friends (followees) on Twitter. Whilst Twitter provides a great basis for receiving information, we believe a potential downfall lies in the lack of an effective way in which users of Twitter can find other Twitter users to follow. We apply several recommendation techniques to build a followee recommender for Twitter. We evaluate a variety of different recommendation strategies, using real-user data, to demonstrate the potential for this recommender system to correctly identify and promote interesting users who are worth following. en
