What are Twitter Lists?
Twitter Lists are timelines of tweets that you can choose to follow. You can make your own List, or follow someone else's. Many Lists are by topic, such as sports, politics, dating, and -- you guessed it -- job search. A topic may easily have hundreds of Lists to choose from, some of which represent a specialty within that topic.
Simply put, using Twitter Lists is a way to organize how you view tweets. It's an easy way to see what's being said about a topic, even if you're not personally following all the people in the List.
A job seeker might follow one or more Lists containing tweets about job search, resumes, interviewing, recruiting, and other job-related topics.
How to Follow a Twitter List
The best way to get the hang of how Twitter Lists work is to start following a List and see if it's useful for your job search. You can start with my List: SusanIreland/Resumes, composed of people I personally select to be on the List because they offer good tweets about resumes and job search.
Here's how to follow my List:
- Go to SusanIreland/Resumes.
- Click the "Follow this list" button, which is just under the name of the List at the top of the page.
Now that you know how to follow a List, check out:
