How I use Twitter

A lot of people ask me why I don’t follow them on Twitter, but I do follow them, just not in the standard way.

I HATE Twitters algorithm that decides what it thinks you want to read and rearranges your timeline.  Hate it.  And I follow a lot of people for different reasons, so it gets to be overwhelming looking at my timeline, so instead I use the hidden gem of Twitter, which is lists.

I have a bunch of lists: Always, Investing, Comedians, Friends, etc…

I simply add the people I want to follow to the list that corresponds to why I want to follow them and then I only look at my lists, never at the timeline.  It keeps all the tweets in chronological order and it narrows down the amount of people in the timeline for each list so it’s not overwhelming.

Give it a try, I think you’ll see it makes Twitter a better experience.

Invest in peace…
