This year I joined Ali Brown’s Millionaire Protege Club (MPC). I use Twitter a lot (@jenniferbourn), so naturally, one of the first things I did was add everyone in the program who uses Twitter to a Twitter list so I could easily check-in and see what my fellow master-minders are up to and to be able to stay in touch easier!
Now, as soon as I created my new Twitter list, I shared it with the group. The only problem was that those who were brand new didn’t know what a Twitter List was or how to use it and that got me thinking …
There are probably A LOT of people who have the same question, “What is a Twitter list and how do I use it?” If you are one of those people, I am writing this post (and creating these how-to screen shots) just for you!
The Problem with Twitter
As you begin to grow the number of people you follow on Twitter, it gets harder and harder to keep track of the tweets from the people you really care about and filter out all the stuff you don’t care about. Soon, you feel like you’re spending most of your time on Twitter scrolling through a sea of Tweets, only to find a few from your core network. (There are apps that help, but that’s for another post!)
The Twitter List Solution
Twitter lists are a way for you to organize the people you follow on Twitter. Lists are the way you can filter out all the fluff and see the tweets from the people you care about most quickly and easily, making the time you spend using Twitter more effective. In this post you will learn, and see in the seven screen shots shown below, how to use Twitter Lists on the actual Twitter web platform.
I was going to write out instructions on how to use Twitter lists, but then I thought the best way to help you, would be to show you actual screen shots from Twitter with short how-to tips included with each one – that way, you can see exactly what I’m talking about! So… Enjoy!
I hope this post was helpful in explaining how to use Twitter lists on the Twitter web interface.
