There are endless ways to use Twitter. It’s fair to say that most users are just hanging in there to follow news and share opinions, experiences, keep up with their favourite music band or interests. No matter what category you fall into, one or two actionable tricks can help you make the most out of ot.
I think lists are the most underrated feature of Twitter – that’s a shame since it allows you to veer away from the overspeeding timeline and actually classify tweets by categories, people, you name it. The more people you follow, the hardest it becomes to stay-in-touch with accounts that truly matter to you, don’t you think?

For being public, Twitter is probably the easiest platform to broaden your personnal or professional network. In this list, add whoever you want to build a connection with: influencers, potential clients and the likes, then start interacting so they start to get to know you.
With these two lists in the bag, you are well equipped to maintain existing connections whilst building new ones – isn’t it what social media is all about?
