Ahh, lists. We all use them – probably daily – to make life a little easier. For those of us over 40, they are a staple tool to help get us the job done. But lists are simply just utilitarian and functional. Institutional even. Or are they?
Enter the Twitter List. According to Wikipedia, “In late 2009, the “Twitter Lists” feature was added, making it possible for users to follow (as well as mention and reply to) lists of authors instead of individual authors.” Mashable wrote a great piece about 10 Ways You Can Use Twitter lists which covered most of the basics. Many DMOs took the ball and ran with it, creating Twitter lists to help visitors and potential visitors find information about their destinations quickly. If you were to look, you’d find that most social media-savvy DMOs have at least a few Twitter Lists at the ready.
