Twitter lists are one of the hottest new trends in the digital marketing world. The list function on Twitter allows you to monitor what people the people in your specific list are tweeting about, and gives you an easy way to check out other Twitter users in one, easy-to-access place. To make things easier for you, we have compiled all of the Twitter list information that you need to know for success.

What is a Twitter List?

The Twitter Support website describes a Twitter list as a “curated group of Twitter accounts.” Users can create up to 1,000 Twitter lists and use them to group together specific Twitter accounts into one place. In each list you can group up to 5,000 Twitter users. Everyone included in a Twitter list can view tweets from all users on the list. Twitter lists serve as a way to keep an eye on other users’ tweets without having to actually follow them. It is also a great way to filter only the tweets that you want to view, which is helpful because a full Twitter feed can get very crowded.

How to Create a Twitter List

It only takes a few simple steps to create a Twitter List. We have simplified each step below so that creating a Twitter List for your business is a breeze.

  1. First, click on the profile icon to the right of the screen. Click the “Lists” button on the dropdown menu.
  2. You will then be led to a new page where you find the “Create new list” button. Click that button.
  3. From there you can choose a name and description for your list. You can then select whether you would like the list to be private (only you can access the list) or public (anyone can subscribe to and view the list).
  4. Now all you have to do is click “Save list” and your list is ready to go!

After your Twitter List has been created you’re free to add users and start utilizing your list to its full potential.

Why use Twitter Lists?

Twitter lists are an excellent way to keep tabs on users who are frequently engaging with your auto repair shop’s Twitter account. We believe that the best way to get the most out of Twitter lists would be to make different lists that group people in your area, people who are tweeting about auto care, and people who directly interact with your auto shop’s Twitter account.

New Call-to-action

People In Your Area

By creating a list of everyone in your nearby area, it is a great way to see an overview of what people near you are talking about. You can keep an eye on all of the tweets that are circulating near your auto repair shop and are able to interact with other users when given the chance. For example, if someone down the street from you is tweeting about restaurant recommendations, your auto shop can respond with a few suggestions. This will give the user a positive impression of your auto repair shop. Even though you weren’t directly advertising your auto shop’s services, that potential customer now has your shop’s name on their mind and your shop will be more likely to come to mind when they need their next auto repair.

People Tweeting About Auto Care

Creating a Twitter list of people who are tweeting about auto care or asking car questions is another excellent way to stay in the loop on Twitter,  as well as position yourself as an auto repair expert. If you respond to someone’s questions about a weird noise their car is making, they will be grateful for your help which will create a positive overall image of your business. They will also be more aware of your brand and are likely to tell their friends about the great encounter that they had with your auto shop on Twitter.

People Who Directly Interact With Your Account

If there are a select few users who are frequently interacting with your Twitter account, including them in a Twitter list is a great way to make sure you’re always up to date on their tweets - even if you don’t follow them. When they’re asking your auto shop a question on Twitter, you’ll be able to see the tweet and respond quicker by having them on a Twitter List. Having a quick response rate to customer questions is also a great way to build rapport with both current and potential customers.

With Twitter Lists, you can be sure to stay in the loop with your Twitter followers and expand your online presence. We hope we’ve given you all of the necessary tools to start creating Twitter Lists and boosting your business online!
