All I've used Twitter for has been breaking news - which I could easily do from here if Lists worked the way I would like them to. I don't mind having to follow accounts to put them in lists, but in that case I should be able to hide accounts from my main feed without also hiding them from lists, which I can't currently do. Once that's done I'll just create bridges for all the journalists/news I follow on the other site, and use them with lists.
