Twitter Listomania Grips Huffington Post

HuffingtonPost.com on Twitter.gifThe Huffington Post is jumping all over this Twitter list thing, last night launching two pages utilizing the hot new microblog organizing feature — one focusing on health care and the other focusing on the World Series.

Here’s a list of other Huffington Post, um, lists. They offer a good example of how fast and easy Twitter lists can be used.

If you’re not quite familiar with them, Twitter lists allow users to organize people they follow into categories of their choosing. So if you follow a lot of people and want a list of your favorite tweeters, Twitter lists let you do that. Or, as HuffPost has done, you can organize lists by topic. Twitter users also can follow lists created by someone else. CNET News.com’s Don Reisinger has a good explanation of Twitter lists.

Twitter has been rolling out its lists feature all week and could be completed today. Maybe. Then we can all go crazy with the lists.
