How to easily search for lists on Twitter
Twitter lists are an incredibly useful resource with hundreds, maybe even thousands, of them out there full of vital information. Though it’s simple and easy to build your own Twitter lists, there’s no point in trying to replicate a comprehensive well-maintained list of users that already exists. We’ve got two ways to search for lists on Twitter that will satisfy your every need, using either Twitter or Google.
What are Twitter lists?
Twitter lists let you customise and organise the Tweets in your timeline; think of them as folders for Twitter. Join lists created by other Twitter users, or create lists of other accounts segmented by groups, interests or topics. Organising your followers using Twitter lists can help you keep track of your community and the discussions they are having. Twitter lists are also a great way to split your business’ followers into groups you can manage.
How to find Twitter lists
Searching for lists on Twitter is quick and easy; simply go to the navigation bar on the left, click the (...) icon and select Lists.
In the lists tab, you'll be able to see Pinned Lists, Your Lists, and recommendations for lists you should be following under Discover new Lists.
