If you follow a lot of people, groups, etc. on Twitter, it can get overwhelming to find certain tweets within the stream of information in your timeline. That’s why the Twitter blog suggests making a list of friends and family to help you quickly find their tweets.
1. To make a list, click the “Lists” tab on your Twitter homepage.
2. From the dropdown menu, choose “Create a list” and pick a name for it.
3. Once that’s done, individually add users to your list. Wherever you see a user’s profile on Twitter, look for the “lists” dropdown menu. Click that button to add or remove that user from your lists.
The thing most people don’t know is that you can add people to your lists even if you don’t follow them.
When creating a list, you can also choose whether to make it public—accessible to everyone—or private, which means only you can see it.
