Hi Denzil,

The suggested user methods return a list of @names which we think users
interested in a topic may be interested in following. As the name implies,
these are just suggestions.

Example calls for both:

> http://api.twitter.com/1/users/suggestions.json
Returns all of the suggested user categories, including slugs. An example
response and more information about the method is here:
    https://dev.twitter.com/doc/get/users/suggestions

> http://api.twitter.com/1/users/suggestions/twitter.json
Returns some suggested accounts to follow related to the twitter category.
twitter in this case is the :slug referred to in the documented URL on this
page:
    https://dev.twitter.com/doc/get/users/suggestions/:slug

Hope that answers your questions,
@themattharris <https://twitter.com/intent/follow?screen_name=themattharris>
