If using Android with Twitter mobile app, you won’t be able to see the lists you’ve been added to using the Twitter mobile app. You may be able to view the lists using browser access on your device.

Notes About Trolls
Trolls add folks to insulting lists sometimes as just a way of flinging an insult your way. Other times, their intent is to share their list of enemies with other trolls to increase the number of insults hurled at you or even to send hackers your way. It is the use of public lists by trolls that people object to and are seeking to fend off when they threaten to block if added to a list.
