Twitter Lists: What Are They And How To Use Them

Twitter recently debuted it’s new Lists feature. According to Mashable:

Twitter lists is a new way to organize the people you’re following on Twitter, or find new people. In actuality, though, Twitter Lists are Twitter’s long awaited “groups” feature. They offer a way for you to bunch together other users on Twitter into groups so that you can get an overview of what they’re up to.
