					       Finding The Most Popular Lists on
                   Twitter



What are the most popular lists on Twitter?

What are the most popular lists in a specific genre, on Twitter?

Listorious is a user-powered directory containing the best and most popular Twitter lists.

Twitter’s list feature allows anyone to create a list on any given topic and put people
(whether you follow them or not), into that list.

It’s a great way to organise whatever you want, into a list of your choosing.

For example, you could create a list called social media and put all those who tweet
about social media into that list.

Currently each Twitter account can create up to 20 lists and each list can include up to
500 users.. so potentially there is room for up to 10,000 people on your lists.

The Listorious 140
As well as creating your own lists, you can also follow lists other people have created.

To find the best Twitter lists to follow, head over to Listorious and click on Login,




Click on <Allow> to allow Listorious to connect to your Twitter account,




                             http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/
                                                                                           1
The best place to start with finding the most popular lists on Twitter is with The Listorious
140,




The Top 140 Lists on Twitter shows exactly that.. the top 140 lists (by followers) currently
on Twitter.

To follow a list just click on that list’s name,




Then click on Follow,




                               http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/
                                                                                           2
You are now following that particular list,




You can double check this by clicking on View on Twitter,




                            http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/
                                                                 3

                                     4
Twitter confirmation,




Tags
An alternate way of searching for lists is via Tags,




Just click on a tag to display Twitter lists that have been assigned with that tag,




                             http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/
                                                                                      5
To follow any of these lists simply click on that list’s name (as mentioned above),




Members of Lists
As you know by now, members of a particular list have some sort of authority or are
generally seen to be ‘experts’ in that genre or list.




                            http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/
                                                                                      6
It may also be worth your while drilling down into a list and following those people who
you may not already be following.

Knowledge is power.

Add a List
You can also add any list from Twitter that you think would be useful to others.. whether
you created it or not.

Click on Add List,




Enter the URL of that Twitter list (or choose a list from the drop-down menu).. add a
description and tag.. then click <Add list>,




Done!

This list has just been added to Listorious for others to follow.
