With over 150 million (and growing!) daily active users, Twitter is a fantastic space for networking and connecting with people in your industry. Many users follow hundreds of accounts and it’s easy to become mesmerised by the sheer volume of tweets arriving in your feed. Twitter lists are a way to keep your timeline organised and efficient. They allow you to customise and organise your twitter experience so you can prioritise the conversations that are relevant to you.
To find your Twitter Lists, simply log in to Twitter and select your profile Icon. From here, you will see a drop down menu and find ‘Lists’. Here you can create your own lists or view the lists that you have followed. To find lists that other accounts have created, simply head to their profiles and select the 3 dots next to their name. From here, you should see a drop down menu with the option to select ‘View Lists’. You will then able to view and follow any of the lists that the account has publicly followed or created.
