Ah, that's why I was added to a list named @rrhoover

@rrhoover @marckohlbrugge @austenallred I'm the Electoral guy, thinking if you build the list as private, and then make it public, it may skip notifications?

@austenallred just tested real quick, looks like the notifications will still happen, after the list is switched to public.

@AustenAllred @schlomo Yeah, I'm a little bit uncomfortable knowing that thousands of people saw me adding them to lists named after someone else, but it will all work out in the end.

@AustenAllred It was super weird but I figured it had to be for a reason, so I asked, haha. Can't believe this went on while I was sleeping though. Serious timezone FOMO.

@austenallred thanks for the source. great idea and really slick use of twitter lists and electoralhq. Curious what you used to generate the lists and are you keeping them updated somehow?

@mikeginnyc I used electoralhq to generate the lists (it will grab the friends of a user (who they're following) and throw them into a list. Then I just embedded the Twitter widget on a side-scrolling website. Now that I think about it, this is probably a nightmare on mobile. I literally haven't even checked.

@msg That's what people are telling me; I wonder why they killed it, seems like it would be interesting, at least in the onboarding stage.
