I love lists. You love lists (Um, that’s why you’re here, right?)
Twitter users love lists, but Twitter lists lack something essential. You can build them and make them public, but you can’t let others add to and embed the list in other places. List.ly a tool I use frequently on this blog is trying to help reinvent the Twitter list by allowing people to add to, collaborate on and embed Twitter lists through the List.ly tool.
The list below is a Twitter list of the tools I use to manage and operate the various social media aspects of my business. Over the years I’ve written about most but this is the first time I’ve put them all in one place. You can view this as a Twitter list here.
By using the List.ly tool to manage this list I can give anyone the ability to add to this list, update the list with changes, share this list, embed this list, easily follow individual list members or simply use this list to build their own list.
I think many lists benefit from collaboration and moderation and now you can have both in the form of a Twitter list. Here’s some more coverage on this new feature from Venture Beat
Here’s how you combine the two for this added functionality.
- Create a Twitter list on Twitter and give it a name
- Log in to List.ly and create a new list with Twitter at the type and link it to your Twitter list
- Then start adding Twitter accounts to your list through the List.ly tool
- Invite others to view and collaborate
So, what social media tools would you add to the list below? Go ahead and add your favorite here and watch the Twitter list grow as well.
