- Get a list of people who follow them. (I currently truncate this list at 100 followers per person to try to keep any one person from being too over represented, and to keep the run-time down.) This list represents “people like me” because they have the same interest.
- For all of the people like me, look up who they follow (again limited per person for the sake of time).
