Have you been dreaming of a way to NOT spend hours haunting Twitter or scrolling through the never-ending feed of Tweets? There is actually a pretty snazzy way to streamline your twitter engagement efforts and save time too. It’s called Twitter Lists.

A List is a curated group of Twitter users. You can create your own lists or subscribe to lists created by others. Viewing a list timeline will show you a stream of Tweets from only the users on that list and you can chose to make your List “Public” (so anyone connected to you can see your list and access it for their own use) or “Private” (only your eyeballs see it and have access to to).

To access a list, or make a new one, click in your photo on Twitter and then click lists.

To create a brand spankin’ new List, scroll down until you see “Create a List.”

Pick and name, add a description (for your own use) and chose whether you want it to be Private or Public.

Then use your new Daily Tweetable List (or whatever name you gave it) to go right down the list and engage/retweet/comment with as many folks as you want.

This list can be added to anytime too. Here’s how to add to that list. When you happen upon an account you want to add to this list, look for the gear symbol next to the Follow button.
​Choose “add or remove from lists
Look for the Daily Tweetables List and tick the box. The click the “x” in the upper right corner to close it out. There! you just added!

This slick little shortcut keeps you in tune with everyone who is relevant to your circle of influence, industry or project. Not just the ones who tweeted “that day.” If you miss a few days, you should be able to pick right up where you left off and still connect with everyone you need to from desktop or mobile device.
Give this Social Media Shortcut a try and let me know what you think! It takes about an hour of your time to ste up, but totally worth the time-savings in the bigger picture of your business.

  1. HI Rebecca,
    I came over to thank you for visiting my site MostlyBlogging on Saturday, and I ended up falling in love with this article.
    The timing is perfect for me. I actually asked a blogging friend of mine how to access Twitter lists, and he didn’t know how or the value. Now I know. Thank you.
    I do have a question. Let’s say I write an article about Pinterest, and I have a Pinterest list. Could I send my link to the interested parties all at once or would I have to go down the list and send to each person separately which would take a while? Thanks again for visiting my site, your comments on my post about how to engage blog readers in a rush, and this great article.
    Janice
