I'm interested in watch how newspaper and magazine sites adopt the use of Twitter Lists. Today I took at look at 30 major news sites - so far there hasn't been a lot of activity in terms of list creation or attracting followers. But it's still early days. An Early Look at News Media Twitter Lists: Not Much Traction

The ecommerce list isn't even in English which isn't much use on an English blog I guess. heh

There is a good ecommerce directory being compiled using Twitter Lists by Sitemakers if anyone here will find any use for it
