Millions of Twitter users awoke on Friday morning to be welcomed with a new feature on their twitter homepage - Lists.

Although the new feature was formally announced earlier in the month, Twitter has to date been keeping the use of the list feature, that allows anyone to create a list of key people to follow, amongst a few close beta testers.

Not any more.

Now most Twitter users are free to create their own Lists like members of your company to inform other users or simply follow them, however with Twitter users on the list not gaining follower count, has Twitter created a system that will ultimately end one of the more ego-centric element of the service? How many people are following you.

Time will tell.

Let us know in the comments the Lists you are following or have created.
