When twitter announced they where going to add the ability to create and show list with other users, I was all for it. I use tweetdeck and had been using TD’s group features for awhile. Tweetdeck even has the option to convert the TD group to twitter groups. Then I started thinking which is better tweetdeck groups or twitter list. So here’s my pro’s and con list for each:

 

Tweetdeck Groups

Pro

  • When items are marked as read, it also marks them as read in the All Friends column
  • Must follow user to add to group
  • Works with desktop client and IPhone app

Con

  • Can’t share with other users
  • Can’t add users from twitter site.

 

Twitter list

Pro

  • Subscribe to others list
  • Twitter tracks how many lists you are on
  • very nice interface on twitter.com

Con

  • Doesn’t update All Friends list when reading items
  • Don’t have to follow user to add to list (effects follower count)
  • Should personalize lists for a new user based on interests
  • Make list collaborative
