Welcome to my new feature called Wednesday Wing where I’ll be
passing on observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.
Today I’m passing on a tip about creating Twitter Lists.
Twitter Lists are useful tools for keeping track of helpful Tweeters. If you are part of a blog tour, for instance, you can create a list to easily find tweets which are relevant and you can quickly share.
Some people create lists about groups of people such as “book reviewers”, or “Romance readers” or any genre that you write about.
Lists can be private to you or they can be public and others may look at who you have on your lists. For a full set of advice check this page from Twitter Help
- Go to your Lists page. …(an item on the dropdown menu from your picture icon at the top of your Twitter page)
- Click Create list.
- Enter the name of your list, a short description of the list, and select if you want the list to be private (only accessible to you) or public (anyone can subscribe to the list).
- Click Save list.
Adding people to your list
To add or remove people from your lists:
- Go to a Twitter profile you want to add. Click the gear icon drop down menu on a user’s profile.
- Select Add or remove from lists. (You don’t need to be following a user to add them to your list.)
- A pop-up will appear displaying your created lists. Check the lists you would like to add the user to, or uncheck the lists you’d like to remove the user from. (click in the box next to the list name)
- To check to see if the user you wanted to add was successfully included in that list, navigate to the Lists tab on your profile page. Click the desired list, then click Members. The person will appear in the list of members.
To view Tweets from a list:
- Go to your profile page.
- Click on the Lists tab.
- Click on the list you’d like to view.
- You’ll see a timeline of Tweets from the users included in that list.
