Twitter Lists are a great way to relieve your timeline by creating separate lists for different topics. But Twitter lists were never easily accessible. In one of the latest Twitter updates, lists can now be pinned right next to the timeline.
Once the lists are pinned to your timeline, all you have to do is swipe left or right in the center of your screen to switch between them. Previously, you had to open the sidebar, go to the Lists section, and then tap a list to open. Now your favorites lists are just a swipe away.
If you've never made a Twitter list before, now is the best time to start. Follow our guide to learn how to create a Twitter list and pin it to your timeline.
Create a Twitter list
Open the Twitter app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device and tap your profile icon in the top left corner of the screen to display the sidebar (you can also access the Twitter bookmarks feature).
Tap here the option "Lists".
On the Lists screen, tap the New button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Give your list a name and description in the list creation screen. If you choose to keep the list private, tap the switch next to the Private option. When you are done, tap on the 'Create' button.
The next step is to add Twitter accounts to your list. To do this, tap the "Search Twitter" text box
Start by searching for the Twitter users you want to add to this list. Tap the "Add" button next to the profile to add the account to the list. Do this for all users you want to add to the list.
When you are done, tap the "Cancel" button to return to the previous screen.
Here you will see all the profiles you have added to the list. Tap the "Done" button.
Your list is now ready. You can follow the process again to create additional lists.
You can also update lists at any time by adding and removing members. To add a user to a list, go to the account profile and tap the menu button.
Tap the option "Add / remove from lists" here.
In the next screen choose the lists to which you want to add the profile and then tap the "Done" button.
Pin Twitter list to your timeline
Now that we've created your list, we're going to bring it to your Twitter timeline. Then tap your avatar in the top right corner and select the "Lists" option.
If you are currently viewing the list, press the Back button to return to the Lists screen.
On this screen, tap the Pin button next to the list you want to pin at the top of your Twitter timeline.
The list is now displayed at the top of the screen in the & # 39; Pinned & # 39; section. If you want to remove a list from the timeline, you can tap the Pin icon again to unpin it.
You can also reorder the lists by first tapping the "Edit" button.
Then press and hold the Handle icon and move the list in the order you want. When you're done editing, tap the & # 39; Done & # 39; button.
Your new Twitter timeline with lists is now ready. All you have to do is go back to the Home section in the Twitter app.
You see the new lists appear as tabs at the top of the screen. Simply swipe left or right to switch between lists. You can also tap the title (next to the & # 39; Home & # 39; tab) to switch to a list.
