Tweets from members added to this list would appear within that list. But other similar tweets, related to artistic content, will also appear within this list. Creating lists on Twitter is a great, fast way of having same kind of tweet content in one place. You can subscribe to other members’ lists, too. There are multiple settings related to lists.
