One of the most effective ways to organise the people you are following is through Twitter Lists.
With Twitter Lists, you get to create and name your own lists depending on where your interests lie. You may, for instance, create five lists:
- PR industry people
- Inspirational Tweeters
In your PR list you would add anyone who tweets about the PR industry. This way when you want to read up on relevant blogs and PR news that people are tweeting about you can go to this list and view the Twitter stream those people are engaging in.
You can make lists private. You can use this function if you, for example, want to keep tabs on what competitors are doing. By creating a private list, you can track what they are tweeting about without revealing that you’re watching.
On the other hand, lists are a form of compliment in the Twitter world. If someone names you on a public and positive list, for instance, ‘Top PR professionals’ not only does this make you feel good that you’ve received a mention but now any of their followers can find you and start following you because of this recommendation.
If you see someone else’s Twitter List that really interests you, for instance if someone has compiled a list of helpful journalists, you may wish to follow that entire list with a click of the mouse. You can then have all of those names and their tweets in one place the next time you’re looking for journalists on Twitter.
