Twitter updates lists as it pushes users toward 'interests'
Well-curated lists can be incredibly useful, but they've always been buried in Twitter's app. Now the company is putting lists front and center, with an update that lets you pin specific lists you follow to your main timeline. With the change, which Twitter has been testing since July, you can simply swipe left from your main timeline to see tweets from lists you follow. The update is rolling out now to Twitter's iOS app and will be "coming soon" to Android. Ready for more customization? Now you can pick which lists will appear and pin them. Just don’t let your lists know you’re playing favorites. 🤫 — Twitter (@Twitter) July 10, 2019 Read more... More about Tech, Twitter, Social Media Companies, Tech, and Social Media Companies

Twitter Now Lets You Pin and Swipe Between Up to Five Lists
Twitter today implemented a feature that's designed to allow lists of Twitter users to be pinned to the Home screen and swiped between, allowing for easy access to multiple customizable timelines. Twitter users are now able to add five lists to the Twitter app, swiping between them on the Home screen. With this new feature, Twitter users can do things like group coworkers, friends, and family into different lists, and then with a swipe, view just tweets from each individual list. Lists have long been used as alternative timelines by Twitter users, allowing people to follow accounts without having to add them to the main Twitter timeline, but the new feature makes it easier to do so. On our list? Make lists even better for you! ✅Now on iOS, you can pin up to five lists, rearrange them, and swipe to access from home.— Twitter (@Twitter) September 23, 2019 As Engadget points out, this is a feature that Twitter has been testing since the summer and has finally rolled out to all users. Twitter has also changed the design of list pages, introducing header images and making it easier to see list members and who is subscribed to a given list. Lists can still be private or public, and there's still an option to follow public lists from other users.Tag: TwitterThis article, "Twitter Now Lets You Pin and Swipe Between Up to Five Lists" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums

Twitter just turned lists into multiple timelines you can swipe between
Twitter is now letting users add up to five lists as alternative timelines in the main Twitter app, allowing you to quickly swipe between different groups of accounts directly from your home screen. The company tested the feature back in June, but it’s rolling it out to everyone on iOS starting today. Check the tweet here for a better look at how the multiple lists actually work in practice. Customizable timelines that are easy to access? We’re thinking about ways to do this! One idea we had is for you to be able to swipe to your lists from home. If you're in the test tell us what you think!— Twitter (@Twitter) June 25, 2019 The idea, though, is that you’ll be able to use lists as either a filter for following a subset of your timeline — like say, just your co-workers — or build themed timelines around people (say, fellow fans of a particular sports team) that you don’t necessarily want to follow on your main timeline. People have been using Twitter lists as secondary timelines for years — mostly on TweetDeck where simultaneous lists can be displayed in vertical feeds — but the new feature puts it front and center in the Twitter app, right alongside the main timeline. The lists used for generating these five pinned timelines still follow the regular rules of Twitter lists — you can either make them private or public. And you can also follow public lists from other Twitter users, too. Users can also remove themselves from lists that other people have added them to by blocking that user. Along with the new pinned lists, Twitter is also overhauling the design of its actual list pages, allowing for header images and a more prominent view of list members and subscribers.
