How Do You Use Twitter Lists? Question of the Week
Conversation is a two way street and here at HootSuite, we love to hear from our communities.
To get things started, we’re asking one question every week via the HootSuite Twitter, Facebook and Google + pages. We will feature the top responses on the HootSource blog.
This week we asked “How Do You Use Twitter Lists?”
This Week’s Top Three
#1. Steven Rowe
Tip: Try organizing multiple, niche streams under a more general tab for the topic.
- Instead of a single stream for news sources, make an entire tab titled “News”
- Add various streams within the tab, like ‘Worldwide’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Politics’
- Enjoy reading what you want, when you want!

Tip: Use Twitter lists to organize resources relevant to your profession/industry.
