Twitter lists are a great way to find new groups of people to follow on Twitter, and share your favorite follows with friends. To help you find and follow interesting lists, we’ve created the Mashable Twitter List Directory.
The idea is pretty simple: With help from our partners TLISTS, we’ve organized Twitter lists into 10 categories (plus hundreds of subcategories!), creating a comprehensive directory of people to follow on any topic.
The Mashable Twitter List Directory is a place to find collections of tweeters on any topic sorted by relevance, not by follower count. For instance, you’ll find a list of Mashable Channels to follow on Twitter, or you can follow a list that provides updates from the whole Mashable team.
From Tech and Science to Politics and Causes, plus country-specific lists, we hope the Mashable Twitter List Directory will be a useful resource for those creating and following lists on Twitter. Be sure sign in with your Twitter account to add your lists to the Directory!
Mashable’s Twitter List Directory is powered by TLISTS, a real-time media startup with a directory and search engine that crawls and indexes Twitter lists and users. TLISTS has already crawled more than a half a million lists, and is adding 150,000 lists a month. TLISTS is presently working with mobile apps to integrate its directory onto phones, and has a public API for developers.
TLISTS is funded by tech media luminaries including Chris Dixon, Roger Ehrenberg, Mark Gerson, Strauss Zelnick, and Ron Conway, and based in New York City.
