Five Must-follow Twitter Lists

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 twitter.com/carsonified/team.

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!

  1. 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’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.

    • 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
