If you follow a lot of people on Twitter, the Twitter feeds get very active, the tweets that you want to see disappear in the clutter of tweets. How to get to the tweets that you want to see. Twitter has a feature called Twitter lists.
Twitter lists help you to filter out the tweets you do not care for and give you the tweets that are of particular interest to you. [Tweet “Twitter lists help you to filter out the tweets you do not care for, and give you the tweets that are of particular interest you. @mrfindmore @lonelycycling”]
I will show you how to set up a list step by step
On your Twitter Homepage, select “Lists” from the dropdown menu in the navigation bar at the top of the page next to the search box.
Twitter lists page
After you select the lists from the dropdown you will probably if you never used list before not see anything, in my case I already have some lists that are displayed on the lists page.
Next Select “create list”
Name your list and describe what the list is all about
Here, you’re given the option to make your list Public or Private.
Public. Anyone can see and subscribe to a public list, but only you can edit it. Public lists are viewable both on your profile and that of anyone on the list. Also, whenever you add someone to a public list, Twitter sends them a notification.
Private. These lists are viewable and known only to you. You can add people to the list without them knowing it.
Add people to your list
Look for the drop-down menu next to the “Follow” button of the person you want to add, and select “Add or remove from lists…”
Then check the list(s) you want to add that person too.
Once you check the box, the person should be saved to your list. Just click “x” (or press Esc) to get out, and there you go!
So the next time you want to see tweets only from your list of “Cycling UK” just repeat Step 1, and select that list.
That’s it! Congrats! You’ve got your first list!
