Today Twitter made its new list feature widely available. This feature allows individual users to create lists of their favorite Twitter feeds related to particular topics. Lists are identified by both the user name of the Twitterer that created the list and the subject to which the list relates. (For example, @uua/uu-congregations is a list of Unitarian Universalist congregations, created by the UUA).
I was delighted to see when I logged into the @uua Twitter account this afternoon that twelve lists had already been created that include the @uua feed (thanks, fellow Unitarian Universalist Twitterers!) The Twitter lists that include @uua have subjects like “unitarian-universalists,” “uu-orgs,” “spiritual-inspirational,” and “news-sources,” which gives you a sense of the different topics around which lists can be constructed and through which Twitters can come across Unitarian Universalist feeds.
The @uua account is now host to several lists as well, which are intended to serve as a quick reference for Twitterers searching for certain types of Unitarian Universalist feeds. The @uua lists are@uua/uu-congregations, @uua/uua-programs-and-offices, and @uua/uua-related-organizations
I’m hopeful that Unitarian Universalist lists (and lists on related topics) will provide opportunities for seekers on Twitter to discover our faith and for Unitarian Universalists on Twitter to continue to connect with one another.
