If you're like me, you've been pretty interested in Twitter lists and their evolution. In case you're not like me, and haven't been using Twitter lists, you can catch up here.
As more and more people are using twitter to connect, it's getting harder and harder to stay looped in with the conversations you're most interested in. Twitter lists helps out with that a lot because they allows you to create groups of people (by topic, location, or whatever moves you) so that it's much easier to follow relevant conversation threads.
There are a couple of tools out there that have done a really good job of getting utility from Twitter lists - my two favorites have been Tweetdeck - which allows you to import your twitter lists and see them all on your screen - and TweepML, which allows you to import your twitter lists in such a way that visitors can follow everyone on your list with one button-click. That functionality is really important for conferences, tweetchats, and other circumstances where you want to follow everyone in a given group.
You already know that my team at Humana has been really focused on using twitter to provide insights and analysis (using our home-made tool called the Tweet Positioning System). We've now taken our analytic capability to a new level by allowing anyone with a twitter account to view all of their twitter lists and analyze the results by location, topic and frequency ... including
- Lists you've created
- Other lists that you follow
- Lists that follow you
