The major news of the week was the launch of Twitters new feature – Lists which are an innovative way to organize the people youâ€™re following on Twitter, or to find new people. They are basically a type of ‘group’ feature that applications such as TweetDeck already use. You can create both public and private lists and are also able to follow other peoples lists.
Personally while I realise how useful they can be, I’m slightly concerned they will be used and abused by those already obsessed with numbers.
I’ve called this the Google edition after the first link which was my favorite of the week as it is a fantastic bookmarkable list of the best Google hacks, tips and tricks to speed up searches and research.
