Follow Friday: How To Find Great People To Follow on Twitter
Instead of searching for people interested in the same topics as yourself #followfriday gives you the chance to find recommendations from friends who they think deserve your attention.

Follow Friday is a great addition to give everyone a way to find valuable people to follow.

Chris Brogan has come up with a great idea to help boost traffic to your own blog whilst at the same time promoting the best of your friends.
