This comes as no surprise that desktop apps will be jumping into this Twitter list craze which I really don’t fancy. It’s like we’re getting into a phase where people stopped being mature and tend to be more like a show off than a professional. Twitter list for me is like a teenager bragging on Myspace or Facebook about how many friends he has to satisfy his ego.
There’s really no sense of doing so and making it public is pretty much alienating and off taste. Even social media’s big man Chris Brogan is uncomfortable with the idea because it can make people feel of being left out (if you’re not even on anyone’s lists) with him being an exemption for being well-known but I admire his humility for his view. From this moment on, I’m switching my lists private so nobody I missed would feel bad. Well, desktop apps can segregate Tweeters depending on whose tweets you’re following.
The idea is such pointless and instead of focusing on their security efforts to prevent their site from DDOS attacks which have happened countless times, they instead kept on stuffing their service with useless functionalities that makes it more congested.
They could have imitated Yahoo Meme’s interface which is sleek and clean.
Going back to this post’s title, yes, Seesmic has integrated Twitter list on its web-based app where users can see their lists on the sidebar. You can view the video below on how it looks like on full run.
Few days ago, they’ve integrated it on Seesmic Desktop. While these improvements can make some of their fans raving, you can read here on why I discontinued using Seesmic Desktop.
I’m not pretty sure if TweetDeck have already joined the fad, I’ll find out anyway. For whatever reason you find Twitter list to your advantage, give me a constructive idea on the comment’s section.
