Creating a twitter list

Keep everyone you value in one place. Creating a list is easy; once you’ve created an account or logged in, simply find someone you want to follow.

For example, if you want to follow @Jitasa_is:

1.  You would input our username in the search bar. This will take you to our twitter homepage.

2.  Click the follow button on the right hand side.

3.  Then select the settings wheel that is directly beside the follow button. This will bring up a screen that will display an options screen.

4.  Select the option “add or remove from lists” this will bring up a screen of your lists.

5.  To add a new one, select “create a list”

6.  You can then create a name for the list and a description if you’d like.

7.  The privacy field on the bottom of this popup allows you to decide if you want your list public or private. If you don’t want others to be able to view or follow your list, select “private”

8.  Once the list is created, you can add anyone else you’d like by following the first four bullets.
