It’s the micro-blogging juggernaut that’s taken over your social life. You’re addicted to tweeting your follies, questions, and curiosities to people you’ve met at networking events, friends that you keep in touch with, and that one follower who seems to be “retweeting” your every word. If you’re like us, then you need some organization to the 50 bazillion followers you communicate with online.
Here’s where we come in. There’s a tool, unbeknownst to millions of Twitter followers, that allows you to organize your followers into lists. To explain, lets say you go to an event, in our case “Digital Dealer 2012”, which is a huge cultivation of the automotive industry’s best and brightest digital marketing minds. Over the course of this trade show, we met several pivotal Twitter followers that we would like to keep up with. First, we followed them on Twitter.
Then, we hit the drop down right next to the Follow button.
Now, you can either add that individual to an existing list, or create a new one. Once you place that individual in their respective list, you can access your Twitter followers according to the title. In our example, the list is called: Digital Dealer 2012
So, to access your live Twitter feed with ONLY the individuals you want to see in the list you created, hit the drop down in the top menu, and click Lists.
