Twitter lists are brand new and you might not have access yet. If you haven’t read Twitter’s announcement about lists, we recommend you do that first. Twibes twitter lists are currently only available to Twibes insiders.
What are Twibes lists?
A Twibes Twitter List is simply a list of Twitter users. You can follow the list just like any other Twitter list. The cool thing about Twibes lists is that anyone can join. To join a list, click “Add Yourself” on the list page. You will be prompted to select up to 10 lists by tagging yourself with the name of a list.
How many people can be on a list?
Twitter lists have a limit of 500 members. We are working on influence rankings to make sure the 500 people on the Twibes list are relevant, high-quality tweeters.
What about my Twibe?
Twibes groups and Twibes lists are separate, but Twibes can turn your group into a Twitter list too.Â There is now a link on each Twibe to “Follow List on Twitter”. Twibes will create a list for you and add the top 500 Twibe members to it.
Because the Twitter List API is so new, our “Follow List” functionality isn’t quite ready. So, today you can follow a list and it will be put in a queue. When the Twitter List API rolls out to everyone, Twibes will add your Twibes Lists to Twitter automatically for you.
We are also still working on our influence calculation. Most lists currently have an incomplete ranking and will default to ranking lists members by number of followers.
We will be rolling out access to lists over the next week or so, be sure to get on the insiders mailing list to be the first to try new Twibes features.
