Quickies: An Introduction to Twitter Lists

By Tess | 22nd Mar 2016 | Posted in Quickies

We’ve created a series of bite-sized blog posts just long enough to give you the downlow on all kinds of digital wizardry, because we love sharing our knowledge and know-how. Get tips for improving your social media efforts, discover powerful PR tricks, and learn all kinds of hacks to make your work life easier. Here is our super quick tip of the week.


Twitter’s own explanation of what a Twitter list is:

“A list is a curated group of Twitter users. You can create your own lists or subscribe to lists created by others. Viewing a list timeline will show you a stream of Tweets from only the users on that list.”


In short, it’s a way of organising groups of people, and a means of discovering new people. You can use Twitter lists in a number of ways. For your company, creating a list of staff members can encourage communication whilst also showing non-employees what kind of people work at your company. If you’re attending an event, then you can curate a list of everyone tweeting about the event.  


To make your own Twitter list, follow these instructions:

  • Login to Twitter
  • Click on your profile picture in the top right hand corner
  • From the drop down menu, select ‘Lists’
  • On the right hand side, click the ‘Create new list’ button
  • Give your list a name and description
  • Select whether it’s public or private, and click ‘Save list’
