NEW Twitter "Lists" (BETA) Is Released To 5% Of Twitterers

NEW Twitter "Lists" (BETA) Is Released To 5% Of Twitterers

I just logged on to my Twitter account (@LeilaniSouza) after hearing the news about Tweets being a part of Google and Bing Search Results (Tweets and updates and search, oh my!) and discovered that I was one of the lucky 5% of Twitterers selected to beta-test their new "Lists" feature. Of course, now I'm pretty excited to blog about this and share the news with my fellow AR members! :)

Here is additional information about the new "Lists" feature from the Twitter Blog:

"My name is Nick Kallen (@nk) and I'm the project lead on Lists, a new feature we're testing with a small subset of users. The idea is to allow people to curate lists of Twitter accounts. For example, you could create a list of the funniest Twitter accounts of all time, athletes, local businesses, friends, or any compilation that makes sense.

Lists are public by default (but can be made private) and the lists you've created are linked from your profile. Other Twitter users can then subscribe to your lists. This means lists have the potential to be an important new discovery mechanism for great tweets and accounts.

We started working on this feature because of the frequent requests we received from people who were looking for a better way to organize information on Twitter. Of course, that means not just twitter.com—the Platform team will follow up in a few days with information on the Lists API. This will allow developers to add support for Lists into your favorite Twitter apps.

We're just doing limited testing for now. But once we've tested the feature out a bit, we'll launch it for all accounts!"

This is what my Twitter home page looked like when I logged in:

"Lists. A great way to organize the people you follow and discover new and interesting accounts. (BETA) Lists are timelines you build yourself, consisting of friends, family, co-workers, sports teams, you name it. You're part of a small group receiving this feature, so don't tweet about it yet!"

When I clicked on "Create a new list" this is the pop-up window that appeared (my List URL will be: twitter.com/LeilaniSouza/realestate since I used the List name "realestate") and you can make the list "Public" or "Private."

Now that I've created a "realestate" list, I can add people to my list so that their tweets appear here. The best way to add people is just go to your "Following" page.

Twitter Following

 

I clicked on my "Following" page and then I clicked on the "list" icon next to the person I want to follow. In this example, I added VinoMuscardini to my "wine" list:

After I went through and added people to my 3 lists (realestate, food and wine), this is what my "Lists" page looks like:

Now when I go to my "realestate" list, all of the tweets from people on that list appear:

Time to brainstorm...how can YOU use Twitter's new "Lists" feature to help you organize and grow your business? How about creating "ShortSale" and "REO" and "(MyCityName)" lists, to name a few ideas?
