How to Discover Twitter Lists?
Twitter lists make it easier to find the right content in a mass of messages jostling for eyeballs. You do not need to laboriously creating your own Twitter list. Several nifty tech tools are available to let you find the right Twitter lists.
Search Google using the following search term “site:twitter.com/*/tag of interest”. This search term instructs Google’s search engine to return results from a single site – Twitter. Replace ‘tag of interest’ after ‘*/’ with the right tag. For example, to find green Twitter users you could search “site:twitter.com/*/green”.
You can search for Twitter lists by using a popular tag or search for your own tag. Searching wefollow for the tag “Green” showed 4057 users on 12 October and ranked them in two ways – ‘Most influential’ and ‘Most followers’. When it came to measuring influence, Tree hugger with 64,724 followers topped the list while the EcoInteractive with 104,191 followers occupied the fourth position.
Like wefollow, Twellow has a list of categories and subcategories on its main page. You can pick a suitable category or search for a list with your own search terms.
Listatlas shows most popular, fastest growing and new lists on its main page.
Want more Twitter lists? Use the search box at the bottom of the Listatlas home page.
Listorious is another great tool to discover Twitter lists by region, profession or topic. With Listorious you can find experts on any topic and even interview them. Asking questions through Listorious helps you organize content like a magazine interview.
TweetFind Twitter Lists
Tweet Find Twitter Lists organizes Twitter lists by categories like music, books, celebrities, environmentalism etc. Clicking on the environmentalism tag leads you to the search result. The results appear in two columns – the one on the left is organized randomly while the one on the right has the top listed names in a category. TreeHugger and EcoInteractive occupy the first and the second spot on the most influential list. Want a new list? Type in a keyword in the search box and get going.
Tlists is a good tool to find relevant Twitter lists. You can search, curate, join and follow top Twitter lists with this tool. A search for ‘Green’ shows a super list and several lists. The super list is a list with real time updating and it shows the most frequently listed Twitter users.
