All you have to do is enter a user's screen name and, if they've created any, their lists will be displayed under the usual links to their friends and followers. Hovering over the "Lists" button will expand it to show the actual lists.
What's exciting about this development is the added richness that's apparent from pivoting lists as opposed to someone's friends or followers. People in lists tend to be, at a minimum, interesting - otherwise they wouldn't be in it. We've also found that the quality of the Klout data we import seems to be much better across a collection of list members compared to collections of friends or followers.
This new feature opens up some amazingly rich veins of twitter data. A very quick web search found this article by Marshall Kirkpatrick on Read Write Web: 10 Twitter Lists You Should Follow. Here are links to the Tweet Pivot collections based on the lists in the article.
