I follow well over 1,300 people on Twitter. Getting anything valuable out of my news feed would take hours of scrolling and ain’t nobody got time for that. For awhile I really tried to limit the number of people that I followed, but eventually I just gave up. Then I found the true beauty of Twitter lists.
Twitter lists are lists that you can use to create your own feeds. There are so many uses for these, whether they’re business related, personal, or simply to try to keep the madness of your feed down even just a little.
You create a Twitter list by clicking your avatar in the top left corner and selecting Lists.
This is where you will see any lists that you own/subscribe to or that you are a member of (meaning someone else has added you to a list). Click Create new list in the righthand column.
Name your list and give it a description. Click Save list.
To add another user to their list, go to their profile. Click the gear right next to the follow button.
You will see a list of possible lists to add the user to. Check the box next to the name of your desired list.
Easy as that!
But what can you use these lists for? There are literally so many different options. Today, we’re going to go over 24 of the best ways to use Twitter lists for business.
