How Twitter got lists wrong – issue #2

Yesterday I covered Issue #1 with lists.  This one is much simpler.  You cannot add yourself to a list.  How can anyone in a company make a list to share and then add themselves?  Can’t happen. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose?  Look at the list I created for TheSocialGeeks.  I created it so I can’t add  myself to it.

How can you effectively build a list that everyone follows when the topic may contain yourself?

Scenario: If you build the top list ever, in any category, you can’t be on it!  You do not reap the benefit of making lists for a category unless you have yet another Twitter account.  Which in turn eliminates people finding you for creating the list.  A nasty circle they overlooked.
