Twitter Lists, a feature designed to let you organize the people whom you follow into groups that are shareable with others, has picked up steam since rolling out publicly a few weeks ago. In fact, nearly 9 million lists have already been created.
The Twitter List function helps cut down on the noise in your Twitter feed and can lead to new discoveries of people worth following. Searching for lists is easy: Third-party sites are already starting to pop up. Listorious, for example, is a searchable directory that helps you find lists based on keywords.
