Learn how to use Twitter lists

It’s been reported that Twitter Co-Founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone originally intended people to have a range of 150-200 followers.

Since a lot of people have more than 150-200 followers it only makes sense that Twitter developed a lists feature so that we can list people by groups.

Creating a new Twitter List is a simple process. In this short video, Skeeter Hansen shows you how to use the new twitter lists feature.

    This List program, I must say, is absolutely awesome. It makes it so much easier to follow without missing tweets by those I like keeping up with. I only have a few lists made up thus far but I have many more to make in order to organize my followers and those I follow.

    Who ever invented this program? – PROPS TO YOU!!

    Now if we could just get those pesky spammers under control.

    Keep up the great job all of you are doing.

    To Paul (one of the all time greats)

    Thanks for adding me to you list, you are the greatest~

    Have you figured out how to delete someone from a list?


  • avatar Paul J. G. says:

    Yes Al, actually I have learned how to delete someone from a list. I hope your talking about how to click on the list box located at the top of profiles and uncheck the box? I have been playing around with the program here and there ever since it became available to us.

    By the time I am done, everybody I follow and everyone that is following me, will be catagorized in a list made by me.

    Thanks Al.

    Thanks! Great info. I notice this new addition but I had no clue what to do with it!

  • avatar Paul J. G. says:

    Another thing I figured out about the “List” program. You don’t have to follow in order to add them to your catagorized lists. That alone makes it easier so they will not appear in your home page of tweets but only on the page of the catagory you place them in.

    I guess the “List” program is just another way of following without losing them amongst all of the others in Twitville.

    Such as CNN, E-Online, Foxnews, etc… I just made a list titled – “Everything About News.” Added them to that list – unfollowed them and Voila! Instant and easy way to keep up with them without the hassle of jumbling up my home page with unneccessary tweets.

  • Hi Al and Skeeter,

    you guys are the best. I knew you would put together something at your twitter blog to help people grasp and use the new Twitter Lists feature. Much appreciated all around. Had to just go give it some RT Twitter Luv to amplify it and you guyz to others.

    Go MN Wild!

    Happy Dating and Relationships, guyz,

    Hi April~

    We are proud to serve.

    What do you like best and/or least about the twitter lists?


  • avatar Paul J. G, says:

    I am back in the saddle again with a new ID and better organizing skills. My last account just got overwhelming with BOTs, and people who didnt want to follow back. I am also using the “Twitter List”. I think the lists make it so much easier to keep all of those I follow and those who follow me in easier organized files.

    Keep rocking the Twitter world Al and Skeeter.

    Thanks for everything.

    Paul J. G.
