Twitter Lists I Am On

Shares

I first started looking down the lists of lists, the Twitter lists list, to see if there were any that I had to remove myself from. One removes oneself from Twitter lists by blocking the person who created the list. Stands to reason. I thought I’d remove myself from any list like “bitch” or “annoying”, and go downhill from there. After all, we are told time and again that online, give people half a chance and they will be negative, right? Negative reviews, negative comments, negative ratings, negative words, negative all the way. Which begs the question that if the only conversations online are bad, why would you go there? Wouldn’t you be terrified every time someone followed you on Facebook or Twitter?

But as I read down the list I went from nervous to smiling to a bit gooey -not a single public negative list in over 300 I am on -here’s a few that were special to me:

I’ve skipped the repeats: social media or people I have met.

How we are “tagged” through life, tells a great deal about us. I’m not keen to put myself in a box – “marketer”? “PR”? “teacher”? “doer”? but seeing how others saw me, for a minute or two was better than any testimonial requested on email and received. Not all the adjectives were practical, which I guess I thought they would be “marketer” “pr” “online communities” – many were emotive and positive inspiring, fave, they make me smile.

A lovely unasked for, unbidden gift on a Friday afternoon – I shall raise a glass in cheer to all named on here today. And another glass for those not named, and a glass for tomorrow’s…

Chris Brogan feels that the lists exclude. Scobleizer reminds him that it’s all about the perceivers not the subject.  TechCrunch reported on how great Country Lists would be. Note: I know the lists are killing off #FollowFriday and moving spam around, but I don’t care…

    The best named list I am on is “women-who-stare-at-goats”
    I look at it now and then when I need a laugh. Don’t think it can be topped really.

      To the right, same line as Following, Followers. Note: they might still be rolling lists out to everyone. Also note most apps eg Echofon haven’t caught up with lists yet. Tho I think Seesmic has.

      Not a silly question at all, took me ages to find it (coz Laurel wouldn’t share her little secret with the class).

      To see what lists a twitter user @fang is on:

    Personally, I think lists are great for each individual, allowing them to organize their friends/followers based on what they think. I also like lists because they allow each user to have a voice.

    I can see how some may feel alienated. However, if you take a look at the lists, those that bring value to their followers and are active are being listed…

    I started twitter a few weeks ago, since then I’ve begun to love it. What started out as a love hate relationship it’s allowed me to network with people in my life alot easier. News and updates happen in quickly which makes for a great social communication app.
