Check out Theme Park Insider's new Twitter lists

I've just started using Twitter's new lists feature, which allows Twitter users to create a special webpage displaying updates from selected Twitter users.

It's like your personal Twitter home page, expect that you can create any number of them and they can be viewed by anyone. Think of this as a way to organize the Twitterers you follow by topic, location, etc.

I've created two lists so far:

Unfortunately, it appears that not only do you have to be a Twitter user to see these lists, but you also have to be one of those invited to be part of the lists beta release. But just in case anyone is, I wanted to get the links to these lists out there for you, because I think they'll be great resources for theme park fans.

(At some point, when there's a clean way to do this automatically, I'll create a widget that pulls updates from these feeds onto ThemeParkInsider.com, the way that we currently pull the updates from our Twitter feed into the right-side column on most interior pages of the site.)

Good stuff!

You should follow the great Ol Erik Yates and his stuff!

Other favorites: ThemeParkmom and LouMongello.

I am able to create lists though so I guess they fixed that part!

The interface to build lists is clunky, so mine are small to start. But I will be adding to them and welcome suggestions!

These invite-only things really tick me off. I've had a Twitter account within a year of launch - my lists are not enabled yet. Well, Twitterdeck said they'd have full list integration coming soon. So it might be easier to build lists from one of these outside apps.
