What’s Up with Twitter Lists?

Since Twitter’s advent in 2006, Twitter has rapidly gained global popularity with over 200 million users, producing over 200 million tweets and processing over 1.6 billion search queries per day.  Twitter has been touted as the “SMS of the Internet.”  Whatever is happening in the world in every area of expertise, you can bet that it will show up on twitter first. So, how can you maximize Twitter to promote your brand, company, products, and service?

In 2009, Twitter introduced a highly anticipated feature called Twitter lists.  Twitter lists enable users to organize the flow of information, which allow the user to bunch together other users into groups, so that you can get an overview of what they’re up to.   The lists appear as sub-categories and become folders or buckets of related users.  They are not static listings of users, but curated Twitter streams of the latest tweets from specified sets of users. This can enhance SEO rankings and help position your company at the top of the search engine results pages.
