Twitter today implemented a feature that's designed to allow lists of Twitter users to be pinned to the Home screen and swiped between, allowing for easy access to multiple customizable timelines.

Twitter users are now able to add five lists to the Twitter app, swiping between them on the Home screen.


With this new feature, Twitter users can do things like group coworkers, friends, and family into different lists, and then with a swipe, view just tweets from each individual list.

Lists have long been used as alternative timelines by Twitter users, allowing people to follow accounts without having to add them to the main Twitter timeline, but the new feature makes it easier to do so.

As Engadget points out, this is a feature that Twitter has been testing since the summer and has finally rolled out to all users.

Twitter has also changed the design of list pages, introducing header images and making it easier to see list members and who is subscribed to a given list. Lists can still be private or public, and there's still an option to follow public lists from other users.

It’s cute that Twitter still tries to get people to use their house app.

I guess I've been one of the lucky testers because I've had this for a while now. I'm glad it's become a permanent feature.

Well, since they've restricted their APIs for 3rd parties, the official app is the only fully functional one. No matter how many times I pay for Tweetbot, it doesn't change what it can't do.

I still only use Tweetbot. It works fine for me. I refuse to give Twitter the satisfaction of their horrible app.

Why would you expect this feature?
Lists are owned and edited by people who created them.
And I should have the right to decide whether or not I’d like my account to be on a public list, and if needed, to remove myself from said list directly. Absolutely no different than leaving a group chat you didn’t create and don’t wish to be part of.

It's nowhere near the intrusiveness of group chats. No-one can message you there and generally it's just a list of accounts. In fact, I think if you block the account that manages the list and then unblock them - you are removed from their list(s).
