Twitter Lists—a resource you’ll treasure!

Is Twitter a social media network of 140 character tweets by tweens, teens, twenty-somethings, and all ages of people who long to share their every thought?

Or is Twitter today’s most accessible real-time news source and information network?

The answer—It’s what you make of it!

You can choose to communicate 140 characters at a tweet with friends, family, and even people from around the globe—and I think that’s a good thing!

But, what if you intend to remain forever tweet-free…

Is Twitter still for you?

My answer is a resounding, YES!

Let me introduce you to Twitter Lists—

Here’s what you will gain with Twitter Lists:

  • Free access to what top minds are thinking on practically any topic you choose.
  • Breaking news from around the world indexed by your interests.
  • The latest headlines from top news sources curated at your direction.
  • Instant access to all the latest how-to information organized to fit your needs.
  • Never miss an announcement about any celebrity, company, sports team, event, or topic.

You choose the topic, and Twitter will aggregate all the latest information into your very own Twitter Lists.

After you join Twitter, you can choose to follow any of the 1-billion other Twitter users. On any given day there are 100 million active users sending 500 million tweets.

Back in the old days (2009 in Twitter time), all of the tweets you followed would appear in a long list called a feed. You scrolled through your feed to find topics that interested you. This process was both time consuming and hit or miss.

You could search topics using Twitter’s search function (still a useful tool), but then had to page through the search results to find the sources you wanted to read.

Here’s what makes Twitter Lists really shine…

You can make a Twitter List for any topic you want. You then populate the list by adding Twitter users that are significant to your topic. At your convenience, you can access your list and quickly scan the latest news, headlines, opinions and how-to information from only the expert sources you selected.

Twitter allows you to create 1000 lists—think of the possibilities!

  • You could have a separate list for all of your hobbies, a list for healthy recipes, one for a medical condition, and another for a favorite sport or team.  You can have a list for celebrities, magazines you follow, local news outlets—they all have Twitter feeds for you to group into lists and follow.
  • And of course, you can have a list for friends, co-workers, experts in your field, and since you don’t need to officially follow someone to list them, you can even keep track of your competitors. (Lists can be public or private.)

One of our goals at Boomers Know How is of course to bring you a wide variety of boomer know-how. Our Twitter Lists aggregate tweets from the experts we choose to follow. We can review what experts have to say on numerous topics in just a few minutes each day.

If there’s a topic you would like to know more about, Twitter can make you wordly-wise.
