You might’ve heard the news that Twitter Lists are alive and kicking. If you don’t know what they are, here’s a brief explanation:

Any Twitter user can create a list of people on Twitter, which can be followed with one click. For example, all the people on the Carsonified Team can be found at

We’re with Robert Scoble on this one: We LOVE this idea (see his great write-up here). It’s going to make Twitter even more valuable because you’ll be able to easily find and follow the type of people you’re interested in.

Here are five Twitter Lists we think you’ll find useful:

  1. Top Web Developers
  2. Most Influential in Tech
  3. Top Web Designers
  4. Tech News
  5. Carsonified’s Recommended

If you know of any really great lists, please add them to the comments!

    It’s coming…
    Twitter Lists

    Lists are a great way to organize the people you follow and discover new and interesting accounts. We’re currently beta testing this feature and it’ll be available to you soon.
    Hold on tight…

    Thats all I see there…

  2. I compiled a list of the European Startup Scene, it’s not complete at all but it’s a lot of work!
    If anyone has any suggestions, let me know:

  3. Oh man, such a tease. I still don’t have Lists nor do most of the people I know.

  4. I am compiling a list of eCommerce professionals that are a must follow.

  5. I’m really excited about lists. Just going through a few today I followed around 100 new people. Like you said, it’s going to be great to easily find new tweeps to follow in a particular genre.

  6. I still don’t have a list but I’m planning to have one this week. :)

  7. I still dont know how to twitter =/

  8. There’s something that I never can understand. What criteria is used for these lists?

      Unfortunately it’s totally subjective. We’ve chosen people in our list because we’ve seen their work and can verify that they’re very talented and/or interesting to follow.

  9. We are an upcoming site devoted to all things beer. We’ve created a list of breweries on twitter that you can check out here: .


    Pursuing Hoppiness,

  10. thank u Ryan Carson

  11. top twitter lists:

  12. I love this list idea. I have one list so far. Once I’ve created a list, haven’t quite figured out how to add more people to it though.

  13. Contemporary Art List>>

    Criteria: interesting tweets on world wide contemporary art (still looking for spanish and portuguese tweets)

    This is kind of crazy though, it’s becoming really hard to follow.

  14. I think I’ll make my own lists of people I think are important to follow. It’ll be a creative expression that reflects my opinion & judgment instead of following some high profile person’s fan club or best friends.

  15. A nice list of lists.

  16. the blog is really great i like it very much
    contractors insurance

  17. Thank you I have decided to become a nerd.

  18. Thanks for that Ryan.

    It is certainly an interesting development.

  19. i am also planning to have a list.

    i am also planning to have a list.i am really exited about that.

  21. Must complement the writer on compiling this post. Good presentation and high on content. Chheeeeerzzzz.

  22. What about the Twitter Groups. I’ve also seen a company who are trying to overlay Tweets on live video. The sort of thing that can be used at concerts but the filtering is immense work.
