Twitter recently introduced a cool new feature that might have gone under the radar for some of you. On May 23, Twitter introduced a feature that allows users to search for lists directly. If you don’t already know, Lists are a set of accounts that any user can aggregate to see Tweets only from those accounts. For example, you can list a sports team and add all the Twitter accounts associated with that team. Before, you couldn’t find them directly. We tried out the new feature and it seems to be a very useful feature.
Feature announcement, Twitter support Tweeted“Looking for something? Now, you can search Lists to find new lists you might want to follow. Try it and let us know what you think”.
Twitter rolls out ‘search list’ feature
To search for a list, users can simply go to the search bar and type in the topic on which they want to find lists. All you have to do is go to the ‘Lists’ tab on the mobile or web version of Twitter and then search for a topic. Search results will now show lists and display information about the number of followers and the number of members. The number of members indicates the number of accounts added to the list (the accounts whose tweets you will see) and the number of followers is the number of users who follow the list.
You can also pin these lists to the homepage as a swipeable feed to quickly check out topics of interest. It should also be noted that list tweets are not always about accounts. This may also include accounts that commonly tweet about selected keywords.
We tested the feature and it appears to be pretty much up to the mark. We were able to find topics like F1 Racing, Chelsea FC and Bollywood and check tweets without a hitch.
