It’s no secret that Twitter is an excellent platform for growing your blog or business. In fact, even our former president, Donald Trump, used the platform to stay connected.
Although Trump doesn’t use the Twitter List feature, many entrepreneurs and businesses use lists to stay organized and manage their feeds. If you’re a blogger using Twitter to network and connect with your audience, you can definitely benefit from using Twitter Lists for your account, too.
If you’re not using Twitter Lists yet, or haven’t even heard of them, this post gives you 13 Twitter List ideas created with bloggers in mind.
1. Friends & Family Twitter List (Private)
Once you’re following 100 or more Twitter accounts, it’s quite common to miss tweets from your family and friends.
Creating a private list just for them will help you stay connected, and keep you from missing important announcements.
Blogging can be so stressful and overwhelming at times, especially if your blog is also your business. Staying connected to those important to you is a great way to regroup when you’re feeling stressed out.
Your readers and customers will also appreciate you staying in touch with your family on Twitter. Why? Because sharing tweets from loved ones helps to humanize your brand. Knowing that there’s a real person behind that logo can be a decision maker for some potential customers.
2. Recommended Resources Twitter List (Public)
Help out your followers by creating a Recommended Resources list. Whatever your niche is, share the wealth of resources you’ve come across on Twitter by adding them to this list.
- Other Twitter Users – Industry leaders and experts in your niche, especially those that tweet valuable information your followers will appreciate.
- Valuable Tweets – If you come across a great resource or freebie in your feed, save the tweet to your list.
Don’t Forget To Add Yourself
Be sure to include yourself on the list!
When you add someone to a public Twitter list, that user receives a notification. They may share your list or mention it in a tweet, which will get your Twitter account more exposure.

3. Competitors’ Twitter List (Private)
Creating a Twitter list for competitors will help your own Twitter account grow if used wisely. Be sure to set this list to private for obvious reasons.
One of the major reasons my Twitter account has so many relevant followers is because of my Mass-Follow Method.
You can use this method to do the same for your own account. It’s very simple and makes growing your Twitter followers a breeze.
Find a few of the bloggers in your niche that are very similar to yours. Follow them on Twitter and add them to your Competitors list.
Every time you want to get a quick boost in followers, simply go to one of your competitor’s profiles and click on their Followers list. Follow as many of their followers as Twitter will allow (up to 1000 per day).
Then, sit back and watch your follower count start climbing.
The best part is that your new followers are most likely in your target audience. Since they are interested in your competition’s content, they will probably be interested in yours too.
