Twitter has introduced the ability to create custom timelines.
Now you can organize tweets into differentiated timeline buckets based on, say, an event or a topic. You name the timeline, and choose the tweets you want to add to it – by hand or programmatically using the API.
The difference between a custom timeline and a Twitter list is that you can tailor and craft the content to your liking, adding or removing tweets a la carte.
Each custom timeline is public, has its own page on Twitter.com so you can easily share it, and is even embeddable on any website.
The catch is here that you have to create, add to and share custom timelines from TweetDeck.

As Mashable reports, Twitter launched a beta testing program in August for Android users to sample the app, and has added to that with a new alpha testing group that will let users access even earlier versions of Twitter for Android.
