Okay, for the last few weeks Twitter has allowed a small group to test out the new “Lists” feature. It groups up your followers, basically, and allows others to see who you have on a list. The concept is great, maybe because it’s new. We will be looking for a search feature to include these list and more social networking tools from the micro-blog giant. Lets analyze the change.
Your followers and following section has now changed. It has formally recognized the word tweet by calculating the number of “tweets” sent, under the username. Now the previous spot this has came from “updates” is now filled with “Lists”. I guess they hope us to create many to make this number large. List are also viewed above the Trending Topics of the Day section. This concept of Lists will play an important role in Follow Friday, if not completely take over as a 24/7 follow friday spotlite on many users’ pages. The feature also lets you know exactly how many followers per list. Pretty cool! I’m off to create some list. Don’t forget to add @elucidmedia to your Follow Friday or @collegetweeps for my student visitors. Thanks!
