I was amazed to find out that Twitter lists are apparently still rather underutilized. Lists are one of my favorite features. Now, I know Twitter has talked of filtering the feed anyway. This is an idea which I highly disagree with since there are so many ways to control filtering already. Lists are a nice way to organize your use of the platform. There are just a few ways I use Twitter:
- Content Curation
- News (world and pop culture alike)
- Personal Updates
I like to think the lists I have are a good reflection of that. I’m able keep track of users by subject, but also highlight why I think the content they produce is worth following. Also, it’s interesting to see what lists you show up on. It’s a great indicator of whether the subject you’re trying to focus on is the same as what people are taking away from you.
