Sorry, the URL didn't come through. An Early Look at News Media Twitter Lists: Not Much Traction

Last week I took a look at what 30+ major news sites were doing so far with Twitter Lists. At least to-date it's been a slow start both in terms of list creation and more importantly in terms of building up subscribers to those lists. But I think Twitter Lists are a good fit for media sites so I'd expect things to pick up. An Early Look at News Media Twitter Lists: Not Much Traction

Thanks for the post. Really digging what you are doing here. I have several lists, not trying to go hog wild. I would rather have 8 comprehensive and well edited lists than 20 poorly executed one with lots of doubles etc..My fear is that if my lists are not well edited people will trust me less as a curator. That being said, as a social media strategist working mostly with restaurants and other businesses in the hospitality industry in New York City, i am trying to become the source for comprehensive lists of restaurants, cheese shops, wine bars etc...I think the utility of that is important and I have used the power of twitter to help include brands I may have forgotten to include on my list.
