John HaydonTwitter Lists are guaranteed to be the next huge (and I mean huge!) game changer for Twitter.

When Twitter lists first came out, I thought: “OK, so users can now make lists of other users based on any criteria.” For example, a list of companies that are hiring, a list of Onion editorial staff or a list of food trucks in Los Angeles. Big deal, right?

Yes, a very big deal.

How Lists will completely change how we use Twitter

  • Users can follow a list without having to follow all the users on that list.
  • Third party applications will use lists in fun and interesting ways.
  • Sites likeListorious will feature a variety of content based on Lists.
  • Twitter Lists will give users additional ways to create value for their followers.
  • Lists will add an additional social proof element to all Twitter users.
  • Lists will change how we follow streams.
