Using Help Sheffield's Twitter Lists
Use Help Sheffield's Twitter Lists to:
- see a list of (almost) all the local Twitter accounts from a certain group of people or about a particular interest.
- find a person, organisation or business directly who might be able to help you.
- find Twitter accounts to follow that share your interest.
Twitter has a useful feature called Lists. It lets you put the Twitter accounts you follow into separate categories. For example, you might make a List of funny animal video accounts and a List of serious news accounts. You can then choose to see one set of tweets and not the other, depending how you feel.
At Help Sheffield we've put almost all our followers into Lists.
To see our Lists, the best thing to do is get yourself to the Help Sheffield Lists page.
Of course, it's easy just to ask Help Sheffield for a recommendation for a plumber or the whereabouts of a good pub quiz but sometimes you might want to see all the options. Think of it like the Yellow Pages (if you're old enough to remember that).
You might also want to see tweets from people, mostly local, who share the same interests as you. We have a List of choirs, a List of people who are interested in education and a List of cyclists and cycling groups.
Subscribing to a list means you will see tweets from the people in that list. You don't have to follow them but it is a good way of finding new people to follow.
Here's Twitter's own How to Use Twitter Lists.
Of course, you can ask us for help if you're having any trouble but we would also appreciate it if you'd let us know if you find the Lists useful.
