According to a tweet shared today, Twitter has been thinking about how to make lists easier to get to. “One idea we had is for you to be able to swipe to your lists from home,” the company explained, followed by a request for feedback.
A feature largely adopted by Twitter power users, lists allow you to create custom timelines by adding only those users whose tweets you want to track.
But the Twitter Lists feature has always been somewhat buried in Twitter’s interface — at least until now.
Lists can also be both public and private, depending on whether you’re looking to share your Twitter curation with the wider world or not.
If you’ve been added to the test, your home timeline will now show dashed lines across the top for each list — a familiar design for anyone who’s ever used Snapchat or Instagram Stories, for example.
Lists are especially useful for things you want to track only sometimes — like tweets about a favorite sports team, TV show, or hashtag, perhaps.
