On daily basis, millions of Twitter accounts post a vast number of tweets including numerous Twitter entities (mentions, replies, hashtags, photos, URLs). Many of these entities are used in common by many accounts. The more common entities are found in the messages of two different accounts, the more similar, in terms of content or interest, they tend to be. Towards this direction, we introduce a methodology for discovering and suggesting similar Twitter accounts, based entirely on their disseminated content in terms of Twitter entities used.
