In this post I will share 5 Tips for Using Twitter Lists Like a Pro.

#TimbosTips: You don’t have to follow someone to add them to a Twitter list.

2. Stay Current

Twitter is a great tool for business owners, but it is easy to get distracted. To help you stay  focused, I recommend setting up a list with accounts that regularly share the latest news in your industry. This will help you easily shift through all of the irrelevant noise online.

3. Connect With Industry Leaders

Make a public list with all of the leaders in your industry. Use this list to retweet, mention and engage with top leaders. By strategically updating a growing list of industry leaders you will be able to learn from the best. You should share your list and and invite people to subscribe and soon you will be recognized as a great resource.

4. Follow Industry Bloggers and Journalists

Bloggers and journalists are great people to build relationships with. Pick your favorites and don’t be shy about sharing their work with your community.

5.  Clients

Keep your current clients on your radar by making a private list. Your current clients will give you ideas for blog posts, new products or additional services you need to offer in the future. You should also engage with them so you stay top of mind for future services. Remember return clients are the best.

Bonus Tip

I also recommend having a list of people you want to offer your services to in the future. Social media is all about building relationships; people don’t buy from people they don’t know.  So make sure you engage with prospects before you offer any services. A list will help you find and engage with the right people.


Twitter is a fast moving platform that is filled with information. It is important to stay organized on Twitter or you can waste a lot of time. The right type of list will filter out all of the irrelevant noise.
