Twitter lists put users in categories and show what others think of you

Twitter is creating its own ecosystem and hierarchy around the number of followers, list mentions, RTs, etc.

Twitter lists show how others label you, for example, "science-types", "medical-education", "bloggers" or sometimes just "random-people".

In a way, Twitter has put everybody to work on their search product since lists are a way to tag an arbitrary set of real time web feeds.

A screenshot of an early version of some of my Twitter lists.

According to @Doctor_V, "You can tell a lot about someone by the lists they keep."
