Twitter allows users to create lists that contain other Twitter users. The use of lists allows a user to view only the updates posted by users contained in a list. Lists can be followed in the same manner as individual users, and users can also reference lists in their posts. The method of referencing a list remains the same regardless of whether you created the list or the list was created by another Twitter user.
