Arnaud,

If you guys want a suggestion on what Twitter should be working on then my list 
would include things that corporates would actually want to pay money for 
including analytics and analysis on who is viewing my tweets.

The day Twitter pony up and start allowing paid accounts is the day I know 
their serious.

 
Cheers,
Dean

It's an @reply spambot, pure and simple. There is no vetting of
suggested users - it didn't take either me or Marshall Kirkpatrick
long to find a tweeter that was not safe for work in @twittersuggests'
stream.

It's a bad idea - Twitter needs to quit screwing around with stuff
like this and solve problems that keep people with budgets up at
night!
