The expression drinking from a fire hose of content or knowledge is a perfect explanation of reading content from Twitter. Here are a few tips in making Twitter easy to read for everyone. The following 3 tips are not exactly new but are built in tools that go unnoticed with new Twitter users.
A great way to categorize the people, organizations, and interests you follow is by creating lists. I use lists to shrink down to viewing information I would like to read instead of my entire Twitter feed. With lists you can
- Use any category name
- Set them to be public or private
- Add a description
- Add anyone into your list
View Their Lists:
One thing you will notice after creating your lists is that others have had created lists and maybe have added you to their list as a PLN contributor. Next time you visit someone you follow, check out their lists as this is a good way to learn about how others categorize and or people they follow per a category.
