    Now that’s a slick idea (that I wish I had thought of on my own). I especially like it for RSS feeds, which I have pretty organized, but there are those that I don’t like to miss and a VIP list would prevent that when my feeds blow up.

    I actually have several twitter accounts for this reason. I have one that is for people that I personally know (my main account), and one for following public figures and sites and the like. With Tweetie, it is very easy to switch accounts.

    I’ve been using this for a while in Google Reader for my RSS feeds, and it has really made a big difference. I still have an issue with feeds that are super-prolific (like Lifehacker). I have a desire to read every post, but it’s not really possible. I’ve given up trying to read everything in feeds like Engadget, but I have a few filters set up via Yahoo! Pipes that help me reduce a few fat feeds down to more manageable chucks.

    My Twitter desktop client of choice, Mixero, is designed entirely around the concept of an active list. Adding to or removing those you follow from a list is a snap. You can create as many groups of users you want and as many lists you want and add/remove groups from lists. Were it not for Mixero, I don’t know how I’d be able to easily manage following more than a couple dozen people.
