AllTwitterLister: 6 Twitter Lists To Subscribe To

Twitter lists are one of the most powerful features of Twitter, enabling users to slice and dice the thousands of people they follow into digestible mini-directories.

You can create your own lists – either public or private – or capitalize on other tweeps’ listwork and follow a list they’ve made. Twitter lists are under-utilized in general, but specifically so in terms of finding and following others’ well-curated lists that could save you time in your Twitter reading and help you form new contacts and leads.

So we’ve launched a new AllTwitter post series called AllTwitterLister, highlighting notable Twitter lists that are worth your click of the “subscribe” button.

Six notable Twitter lists worth subscribing to this week:

BuzzFeed’s Local News: (199 members, 11 subscribers). BuzzFeed’s compiled a list of network affiliates, handy for when news breaks in a certain region.
