Seven Simple Steps to Removing a Twitter User from Your Twitter List

Twitter, the popular social networking and internet microblogging service that launched in July of 2006, added Lists to its functions in late 2009. This handy tool allows Twitter users to add followers of their choosing to specific lists. The Lists feature enables Twitter users to follow, mention and reply to lists of Twitter authors instead of individual users. Often Twitter lists are created based upon the topics people post about the most and common interests so people with common interests can find and read the Tweets of other like-minded Tweeters.
