Yesterday, I posted about the growing popularity of Twitter Lists and some of the many ways Twitter users are putting Lists through the paces.

Today, we’re focusing on tools available to help you do more with Twitter Lists. So, if you’re ready to work Lists into your daily activity but aren’t sure where to start, this one is for you.



A conversationlist is a daily Twitter List of the people that you talk to frequently on Twitter. You create your conversationlist through the site, then view and manage your List with any other Lists you follow. You can also customize your list by setting the maximum number of members, identifying people you always (or never) want on the list and more.
