If you are like me you have several kinds of interests and if you are using Twitter you may find that after you start following people you miss out on specific information in the tweets. I only check my twitter once or twice a day and the stream of tweets wasn’t helping me to find anything specific.
The LIST function in Twitter is very useful in organizing the tweets according to your specific interests.
Create a new list
Select people to add to the list
in the search box type in a specific person or topic. Also – when you are looking at a PROFILE – you can click on the LIST icon to add them to one or more lists.
The LIST icon is the icon on the right circled in RED
Click on the list to view tweets for that list – Example
I had started a new blog of travel and photography articles about Nova Scotia. In Twitter I made a list to follow and organize people who tweet on Nova Scotia events, restaurants, attractions, shopping, and arts and crafts. This helps me to quickly see new tweets on this specific area.
