Hello everyone! Are you on Twitter? Have you heard of bookmarks? Or lists? I’ve received questions about these tools lately, and I wanted to share a how-to guide and why you might want to utilize bookmarks and lists on Twitter. I’m an organization queen, so they help me feel better about my twitter navigation experience, and I hope you enjoy using these helpful tools as well!
Why might you use a Twitter list? My top reason for using creating one is to organize relevant groups of people based on events or topics. I also use lists during pitch events to find other writers in my genre. Using a list, rather than the general Twitter feed at large will filter irrelevant content. This is beneficial during large-scale events like #pitmad or #pbpitch.
Here’s a quick how to guide to set up a list and get started.
To create a list go into your profile and click on lists to create a new one:
Once you have made your list, you can click on the three little dots at the top right of someone’s tweet… And add them to your list.
Bookmarks are another genius tool to stay organized and keep posts you treasure readily accessible when you want to reference them again in a sea of twitter posts. To create a bookmark choose the arrow up symbol at the bottom of the post and choose bookmark. For reference later, go into your profile and you will see all your saved bookmarks and lists.
