Twitter has just launched a new feature called Lists. This is very similar to what is known as Groups in TweetDeck or HootSuite, except the group lists that you make on Twitter are public.
How You Use It
You can group your followed friends into categories like “Designers”, “Blogs”, “Celebrities” and then view you lists to get a more targeted look at what people are talking about.
How Your Followers Use It
When you are looking at a Twitter profile, in addition to seeing who they follow you can also check out the groups they have created or the groups other people have listed them in! This can be helpful if you are looking for a certain group of people like designers or freelancers to add to your stream.
What do you think of this new feature? Do you see it as something valuable? How will you use it?
