Creating a List on Twitter to Organize Tweets

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

Twitter create a list
Twitter create a list - drop down menu

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.

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.

Your Internet Strategies

 

The WEB of website + Social Media

I have now moved the blog http://alephconsulting.word.press.com to new hosting and using WordPress.COM and using the domain name www.yourinternetstrategies.com

 

If you have been following previous posts about comparing the 2 versions of WordPress you will see the pros and cons of this.  The WordPress.ORG is giving me some additional programming functions that make it possible to display some types of materials not possible before.

I hope that those who were following the Internet Strategies blog before will continue to follow and re subscribe.  I have been able to change the URL on Networked Blogs (on Facebook) so followers from that stream should continue to receive notice of new postings.

I am interested to receive your comments and if you are seeing anything that isn’t working on this new format – images, links or anything else that doesn’t look like it is displaying correctly.  If you do see an error could you please send me the URL of the page, the problem and what browser you are using.

Thanks and I hope to continue posting on ideas, tips and strategies for nonprofits and organizations that are looking for methods to use the many facets of the Internet to grow your organizations.   The new domain name for the blog reflects this   “YOUR INTERNET STRATEGIES”    www.yourinternetstrategies.com
