@MSchechter Empire Avenue is better than it ever was, maybe because most of the navel gazing social media experts wandered off to Path and Pinterest. It was also funded since Geoff's post.

@ginidietrich What's WRONG with people?!
2 years, 11 months ago on Twitter Lists: List Me Baby One More Time
@Ari Herzog I do think lists are a little bit of a different type of engagement. Maybe someone just *really* wants to listen to you but they aren't big at the replies thing. And definitely, knock the auto-bot lists. Hate that stuff :(
@Nakeva Ah, Formulists drives me crazy! I'm all these "like so-and-so" or "people I talk to" lists. Dearth of semantic data there.
@glennQNYC Great tips, Glenn!
@JenJenkins Thanks, Jen!
@pmross Oh, I bet people want to list you for a range of those attributes. What quicker way to find out that you're a mountain biker who talks a lot about SEO and photography than lists? I was using a "photographers" list just for this.
@lacouvee I WAS using a tool called TweepML, but then it went down for a really long time as new owners tried to redo the app. It looks like it's back up finally - http://www.tweepml.org/ - so I need to explore it again. I, too, ran out of lists, so I started making them on secondary accounts, like my @gov20radio.
@hackmanj I actually monitor them closely, yeah. I'm always bummed when new lists are just spam from Formulists.
I find it really interesting and helpful to my social media strategy seeing what I'm manually added to. Like, when I shifted a bit from Gov 2.0 when moving to NationBuilder, I did start getting added to less gov lists and more about entrepreneurship, startups, organizing and the like.
@Lisa Gerber Glad to write for Spin Sucks! Happy list-building :)
Thanks! And I like your strategy on blocking spammers.
Klout is ridiculous and largely meaningless. That said, I'm a fragile person and having a high score is nice for my ego (but not enough to do anything differently to try and raise it). Nice post!
