Get the most out of your Twitter list (here’s one of SPJ chapters)
By Scott Leadingham
Sometimes random minutes “wasted” scrolling through Twitter updates can produce valuable results.
That was the case today when I stumbled across something from SPJ member and Seattlepi.com reporter/social media guru Monica Guzman (@moniguzman).
Here’s what I think is the easiest way to follow Seattle news. I do it every day, & trust me: I’ve got a full plate http://bit.ly/arCS4S
She addressed an issue I’ve been mulling for a while for @spj_tweets: how to make better use of Twitter lists.
Without stealing all of her thunder, I’ll let you check out what she has to say in greater detail.
But the gist is getting easy access to a Twitter list and using it in locations other than Twitter, namely your blog, news Web site, etc. The neat thing is people who aren’t down with Twitter can get feeds (read news and information) from a diverse range of sources due to the construct of the list.
So, without further adieu, here is a real-time (and constantly updated) list of news and tweets from SPJ chapters (student and professional):
Don’t see your chapter here? Follow @spj_tweets with your chapter account and we’ll add you.
See Monica’s Guzman’s post for easy instructions on how to do this with your lists.
