Twitter tips: lists

Can't keep up with all the tweets? Did you know you can create lists of different users on Twitter, so that you never miss an important tweet again. For example, if you're following someone who tweets about the latest diabetes evidence, you could add them to a list called, Diabetes Evidence. When you're next online, you can catch up on all those lists/subject areas you're interested in. It's a form of cataloguing your twitter feed and that's second nature to us library folk!

To create one, go to your Twitter lists here. Click on "Create new list" and give it a title. You can also select whether you want your list to be private (only accessible to you) or public (anyone can subscribe to your list). When you've finished, simply save your list.

To add people to your new list, go to their Twitter profile and click on the gear icon. Click on "Add or remove from lists". Select which list you would like to add them to or remove them from.

The next time you want to have a look at your curated Twitter lists, simply click on the Lists tab on your profile.

If you would like to see what lists you have been added to, go back into your lists and click on "Member of".

To subscribe yourself to someone else's list, go to their profile and click on the Lists tab. Open the list you are interested in and click on "Subscribe" in the top left corner.

We hope you find this Twitter tip helpful! Catch up on all our tips here.
