Twitter List – the latest addition to Twitter.
Are your using Twitter to promote your business? Do you think it is worthy enough to be used?
Twitter has been a part of my promotional strategies since I joined it in June last year. Twitter was a less know phenomenon then. But by the time it exploded in the beginning of this year, I had a fair foothold of the microblogging platform.
I enjoy tweeting. I personally feel that it is a matter of how much you enjoy using this service, that decides if you will use it in your marketing strategy or, not.
If you are not using Twitter, I would recommend you to try to use it.
Okay, so now Twitter has introduced a new aspect to it – Twitter List.
What is a Twitter List?
Twitter list is a new feature in Twitter that lets you create lists within your profile so that you can organize your followers into various categories like, friends, business, clients, marketing lists etc. In a way it is a way of neatly arranging your followers into specific categories so that you know where to look for a specific person, if at all you had to.
Twitter list has added another dimension to using Twitter. You can now follow an entire list or, one of your complete list can get followed. So that means that you can now follow a group of people at the click of a button. You need not add each individual one by one.
But how useful is this new feature at Twitter?
I personally felt that there was nothing new or, useful that this feature could add to Twitter, except for the fact that your could now be a bit more organized with your followers. One thing that is worth considering is the fact that this feature would add something that is already existent in many other applications, to Twitter as well.
But how Twitter plans to promote this feature and how it plans to encourage its users to accept this feature is to be seen. But my preliminary conclusion tells me that this is not a great feature that Twitter has added.
What’s your opinion about this?
