What's the best way to manage Twitter lists?

I'm trying to organize the people I follow on Twitter into category lists by how I know them so that the feeds make more sense to me than just one general feed of everything (the firehose). But Twitter list management is pretty awkward with both Twitter and TweetDeck (which Twitter now owns). Any suggestions for making some sense of whom I am following?


If someone in this thread is still interested, there's a new tool out there: http://tweez.it

Tweez is free, fast and browser based.

Have fun :)


I just came across http://tweetbe.at/list-manager/ and its amazing and simple.
