I had created a Twitter list for different groups on TweetDeck and it worked great in keeping everything organized, but for some reason I never got around to do the same on HootSuite. Well until today that is.
If you have been on Twitter for a while and you are following a lot of people, you know that it can be hard to keep up with everyone and chances are that you are missing a lot of tweets. Creating a twitter list for different groups helps you keep things organized.
Frankly, if you use twitter for business marketing you want to make sure to keep in touch with your contacts. You probably remember the” know, like, trust” factor. Building a relationship with your contacts, customers and business associates is so very important. Twitter helps you keep connected.
Why would you want to create a Twitter list?
The main reason would probably be so you can filter the tweets of people you are following into categories. By creating shorter lists you will be better able to monitor them. You can create a list for family, friends, customers, people in your company, gurus you follow, etc.
So how do you create a Twitter list within Hootsuite?
It’s quite simple actually. Just follow the three simple steps below.
1) Log in to your HootSuite account and click on “Add Stream” just like the picture shows below.
2) Make sure “Twitter” is selected (highlighted in blue) and then click on “Lists.”
3) If you have multiple Twitter accounts select the profile you want to use to add a new twitter list. You can either use an existing list or create a new one. Give your list a name and choose if you want it to be public or private and click “Create Stream.”
Congratulations, you are done! You just created a new twitter list in your Hootsuite account.
Wasn’t that easy?
Have fun adding lists to your account!
