Over at Twitter their blog states they they are in the process of offering a feature call ‘List’ for all account users. The new feature will allow users to share groups with other Twitter users. According to the blog article it also states that:

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.

We started working on this feature because of the frequent requests we received from people who were looking for a better way to organize information on Twitter. 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.

We’re just doing limited testing for now. But once we’ve tested the feature out a bit, we’ll launch it for all accounts!

Is this a feature that you will be using? Let us know what you think and share your thoughts.

Comments welcome.
