Coming Soon to Twitter: Lists

From the Blog Post:

The idea is to allow people to curate lists of Twitter accounts. For example, you could create a list of the funniest Twitter accounts of all time, athletes, local businesses, friends, or any compilation that makes sense.

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.

At the moment, Twitter Lists is being tested on a small subset of Twitter users.

If you're interested in not waiting for Twitter's list service, a new service (Beta) called Lunch allows you (for free) to create various lists using Twitter. Twitter lists are just one of many features this online community offers. Here's a collection of Twitter lists. Each list entry can be easily annotated. We were up and running in no time creating lists. That said, we ran into a few problems publishing our list to Facebook. The site has a section where you can write reviews and you can also "follow" users on Lunch. Comments can be deleted but actual review can not be deleted.

More about the service in this Mashable review.
