Twitter to ease users list pain

Twitter to ease users list pain –

The problem with Twitter’s web interface is that it is so minimalistic it is impossible to find anything easily. For instance, if you want to delete a spam message on the web account, there is no button on the “HOME” page. For that, you have to go to the “Profile” page.

Similarly, how do you organize tweets that fall into the same category ? Twitter has been so miserly with basic functions on its site even two years after its launch that third party applications such as “Seesmic” and “TweetDeck” have stolen a march over it and created desktop applications that do everything you wanted to do on Twitter with just one click. You can even create Groups based on interest or names that get categorized into columns.

But finally, Twitter seems to be waking up. It is testing a new feature that allows users to categories tweets using Lists. They are nothing but heads under which you categories messages. They could be anything from Sports to Technology to Marketing to Weather to Films.

The List will feature on the Profile page and will e public, although, Twitter says, you can make it private too. But that kind of defeats the purpose of Twitter because it is meant to be a public forum in the first place.
