Why have you abandoned Lists, Twitter?
One problem: you, Twitter.
The idea is to allow people to curate lists of Twitter accounts.
Back in September 2009, you announced a new feature that your teams had been working on. A new feature that would allow people to curate lists of Twitter accounts and let other’s subscribe to them.
Amazing. I could finally build out lists that show tweet streams tailored to me, filtering out some of the unwanted tweets of people I follow (sometimes, a stream of tweets in bursts of a minute, isn’t what I want to be reading).
Since 2009, what have you done with Lists?
- You’ve made me click twice to get to Lists on the web
- You’ve made me touch three times to get Lists on iOS
- You’ve removed the ability to search Lists
- You’ve introduced Timelines, Moments, Polls, Vine, Periscope
- You’ve abandoned Lists.
You’ve got an incredible team of Product designers. Is anyone giving Lists some loving? If not, I sure would give Lists another shot.
In frustration, I’ve built, on top of your API a way to find and subscribe to lists recommended by the community with many features coming soon that I wish Lists could do in native-Twitter.
