Twitter Lists Feature Is Now Live

Recently when I logged in my twitter account the first thing which caught my eyes was New! Lists as shown in the below snap-shot. Twitter had mentioned about this feature almost a month ago in their blog Soon to Launch: Lists and from last few days it has started to roll out this features officially.

List twitter

This new Lists feature is still in its beat stage that is the reason it has been only rolled out in a small subsets of users till now .

What does this Twitter Lists do?

Now you can create a lists of Twitter accounts and can share with your friends or with anyone you like by making it public or even keep it to yourself by keeping it private.

I think with this new feature coming in Twitter it would be easer for Twitter users to keep a lists of people which they love to follow as well keep a track of it and what's better then sharing that list with everyone.

So those who have not yet got  this New! Lists box in their accounts should get it soon maybe in next couple of days in the mean time start planning about your list and do share the list with us. Also lets us know what do you think about this new feature in Twitter by leaving a comment.

This is a huge step taken by orkut as whole orkut interface has been changed and I have to say its pretty impressive. Lets look at the what all we have in new version of orkut.

try the new orkut

Features in new version of orkut:

- Fewer pages and faster browsing

- A clean and simple interface

- Greater personalization


Fewer pages and faster browsing

No one likes to wait keeping this in mind Orkut has improved its loading speed by using Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and also reduced number of pages as well which will take less time in waiting for things to load and more time doing what really matters which iFriendss hanging out with your friends!

  • Fewer pages to get more control over your account like list of all your friends and communities can be seen in one frame block just by scrolling that block.  

A clean and simple interface

Its good to see that Orkut has not congested all the things in reducing the pages. The new looks looks clean and simple but though dynamic which is the best part. Now you can even use your friends' profile pages to keep up with their most recent activities and leave them scraps which is similar to facebook or twitter. Other cool features..


1. Larger pictures

2. Recent visitors thumbnail photos rather then having their name 

3.Targeted friend suggestions
