Who Should Be on Your Twitter List?

The Twitter list is all over Twitter and more people are getting themselves familiar with it.

What is the Twitter List? 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.

The developers of the app  started working on this feature because of the frequent requests that the community has been clamoring for a way to follow information by category or interest.

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.

Who should be on your list?  People who you feel adds value to you and your followers.
