In its new update, Twitter is reportedly making it easier to use lists by allowing users to pin them for easy access. For example, if you’re into politics and tech, you can create lists of sources in the Twitter app and then pin them by just a tap. While Twitter’s customizable timelines are yet to be rolled outside of its test app, the pin feature could well play into the development of its customizable timelines.
Ready for more customization? Now you can pick which lists will appear and pin them. Just don’t let your lists know you’re playing favorites. 🤫 pic.twitter.com/loMPptRfzQ

With these new introductions, you’ll now be able to select which lists you can swipe between in the home screen and pin them to the top of your lists page for easier access, whether they’re ones you’ve created or public lists made by others. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to Engadget, “This is only a test for now, and a limited number of people will see it in the app for the time being. In any case, by bringing lists to Home, Twitter is aping the utility of apps like Tweetbot, which lets you set a list as your main feed.”
Twitter’s list pinning update should roll out shortly to mobile users
