TWITTER LIST… Why It’s My “Can’t Go Without” tool.

I love Twitter lists. Why? Well, for one, it gathers the tweets of categorized tweeters as I see fit.

twitter lists, pr tips, marketing, business development, social media

If you are like me, you follow a bunch of tweet handles but the feed moves so fast that you find that you easily miss out on some that might otherwise be VERY useful to you.

With a list, I can gather up all the tweets from a group I create and see what’s going on in that space! Believe me,  this makes it so much easier to keep up with a subject matter or group of tweeters.

For instance, I have started a Twitter List of SD Food Bloggers ( where I can check out what tasty treks they’ve been on but as a publicist, it’s a great way to answer quick questions.

  • What trends are occurring in the category?
  • How do the influencers differentiate from each other?
  • What type of content will they be interested in?
