Twitter is experimenting with a new feature called “Fave People,” which allows you to keep track of your favorite Twitter users and accounts in a separate timeline.

This feature, essentially a more user-friendly version of Twitter’s “Lists,” recently appeared in the alpha version of Twitter’s Android application – the app where the company tests new features and changes before rolling them out to beta testers, and then, finally, to the general public.

The alpha app currently uses a
“swipeable” menu across the top for navigation in between sections like Home, Discover, Activity, and more.

Fave People has a fairly prominent position there, at
least for now, as it’s placed directly to the right of the main (“Home”) timeline. When you tap into this section for the first time, the app explains how Fave People works,
Keep track of your favorites
Tap the star icon on the
profiles of your favorite people to see their Tweets in this timeline. You can also chose to receive notifications when they tweet from Settings.

A button beneath this message lets you hop into your “Following” section in order to start picking out your favorite fellow Twitter users.

This could be a bit of a time-
consuming process for those who follow hundreds, thousands or even more, on Twitter.
