Why make a twitter list? To help group people you follow by;
- geographic region
Definition: A grouping of users + a descriptive name.
- 20 lists allowed per user
- List names cannot begin with a numerical character
- List names cannot exceed 25 characters
- Maximum of 500 accounts on each list
Mentioning Lists (Source: https://support.twitter.com/articles/76460-how-to-use-twitter-lists )
You can link to any Twitter List by mentioning it as you would any Twitter user, just add a forward slash “/” followed by the list name to list owners username:
@/ (example: @Favstar/top-50-funny )
Note: Pick Your Name Well!!!! Renaming a list will break any links you've posted to that list.
