Thnking about Twitter lists

If you're thinking about or are using Twitter lists, you might want to take a look at Chris Brogan's blog post "Twitter lists I'm not down"

In his post Chris' describes how yes Twitter lists are useful but when it comes to using them to list people there is a problem, as Chris explains "In talking with friends about it on Twitter, people immediately started DM-ing me, telling me that they felt left out or even LESS important because they weren’t on any lists. Lists are exclusionary by nature. They’re static. There’s a lot of reasons why they might not be all that pleasant for people"

I have to admit I'd never really thought about Twitter lists in this way. I can see now how they will be exclusionary. So what are other people doing, are you creating Twitter lists?

    Boycotting them by not creating any? You can of course be included on any number of lists!
