HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists

HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Twitter now has a newer list upgrade.  It is the answer to Facebook Groups.  They have always had lists, but we can now have people in lists who we DO NOT subscribe to.  We can also remove ourselves from other people's lists if we do not want to be on them.  It should be interesting:

Ken

The newly launched Twitter Lists feature allows you to group together, follow, and find Twitter users. Learn the ins and outs of this new feature in our guide.

Twitter Is What Twitter Does

Twitter Is What Twitter Does | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Last week, I unfollowed everyone on my Twitter list. I was stuck in a twitter rut feeling like I wasn't making connections, like all of these people and ideas were whizzing by and I wasn't engaging. After explaining this to a person I admire (John, don't get a big head) he suggested to unfollow everyone and rebuild my PLN. So I did. And I am thrilled I did.
