A few days ago twitter announced user lists, a feature that let’s you organize better the people you follow. This new feature works similar to SocialWhale’s lists but as it is much more promising than our own version – even that there are still many things to get done in twitter’s side to make it more funtional – we decided to replace our lists with the ones provided by twitter.
Do you already use SocialWhale’s user lists?
In order to keep the update process better for the users that use our user lists, we have added an import tool that will allow you to import your social whale user lists to twitter. Next time you will login with our service a wizard will start the procedure.
A few things to get done later
In our user lists implementation you could view the lists that a user appeared directly from your timeline stream. Now this is not possible as it requires several twitter API calls (you can only do 150 API calls per hour) We hope that twitter will give us a solution on that later and we can get things back to normal.
Bellow is a video demonstrating how lists work at the moment. Let us know if we can make this any better for you
