Thought about this the other day on Twitter, not realising you had already put this out there.

I'm thinking lists could be really useful for breaking news. Especially to filter the relevant accounts of the event.

For it to work, it should be easy to add people to a list, one click at most. That list would only display tweets with a certain hashtag, or display all tweets from certain people during the event.

Everyone should be able to add people to the list, and flag those who doesn't belong there. To spam, you would have to add yourself to a list and not be flagged. Then it becomes hard to spam the stream with other than relevant info.

This could be made simpler or more complex, or entirely different. But I think the potential is worth looking into, especially as breaking news are such a big thing on Twitter.
