Twitter rolled out a cool new service today that allows you to organize the people you follow into lists. However, they rolled it out for only a select number of users with this prominent message:
New! Lists. A great way to organize the people you follow and discover new and interesting accounts. (BETA)
Lists are timelines you build yourself, consisting of friends, family, co-workers, sports teams, you name it. You’re part of a small group receiving this feature, so don’t tweet about it yet!
What’s a bit funny about their asking people not to tweet about it is that, instantly, everyone started tweeting about it so much that it became a trending topic.
We are not good at following directions, clearly.
You can see what people are saying about Twitter Lists here. But what do you think?
