This is all speculation on my part. Not much more than a hunch, or a gut feeling. I do this a lot. I’ve been right before and I’ve been wrong before. Time will tell. But something about the way Twitter sees the Favorite and List functionality has shifted. There’s been a change, and they’re less important as they were before.
