MyFriendTweeter allows its user to specify a biographical description of his or her interests in order to locate new friends. This tool provides Full English language support. The user only needs to supply an English worded text (i.e., a sentence, a paragraph, or even a page of text) of their basic interests and who they are. Since this engine provides open-ended search, it will iteratively search Twitter for new users that best match the supplied interests. This Twitter search engine is more accurate than standard search technology, since it combines both static as well as dynamic features during search.

Trying to locate new friends on Twitter with standard search technology, can be very tedious. Often the found results, have little in common with the target search terms, or the chosen user names. Furthermore, messages tend to be old, infrequently relevant, or even completely off target. The content on Twitter changes constantly, resulting in a frequent re-ranking of search results, addition of newcomers, and of course departures of old acquaintances. Finally, the task of locating good friend matches is further compounded by the fact, that individuals' Tweet subjects tend to change over time.

MyFriendTweeter addresses these problems, by completely automating the search process. The user only needs to supply his own biographical search text. From this point on the tool will continuously scour Twitter for new friends to follow. The user can at his own discretion decide when to further inspect the newly found Twitter friends and add them to his/her following list. Ultimately, this leads to cost savings in personal search time spend on trying to locate new individuals that match one's own interests.
