   "These tailored suggestions are based on accounts followed by other
    Twitter users and visits to websites in the Twitter ecosystem. We
    receive visit information when sites have integrated Twitter buttons
    or widgets, similar to what many other web companies - including
    LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube - do when they're integrated into
    websites. By recognizing which accounts are frequently followed by
    people who visit popular sites, we can recommend those accounts to
    others who have visited those sites within the last ten days."
