On Twitter, I'd like to watch specific "followed" people in the Home page (timeline), and watch the others (i.e. celebrities and organizations which have more tweets than my friends) in a list window I created. Is a separation like this possible?

I'm not sure what you're asking here because this is primarily what twitter lists are used for.

  • In the twitter web application, Click "Create a List"
  • Find the user you want to "List Follow"
  • Click The "List" dropdown.
  • Add this user to your newly created list (You do not have to follow the user)

Instructions for Old Twitter are here.

This is what I did; but the problem is I don't want to copy these persons, I want to move them to the list. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Oct 7 '10 at 14:30
OK - Place them on the list and then unfollow them. – seanyboy Oct 7 '10 at 14:43
This did what I need. Thanks! – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Oct 7 '10 at 15:05
