How To Make A List On Twitter [Follow This Easy Step-by-Step Guide]


If you want to know how to make a list on Twitter or join someone else’s from within your Twitter account, stay tuned; I’m about to show you how to do it step-by-step.

It’s an easy process that takes minutes to complete.

At its simplest, you:

  1. Log in to your account on the Twitter homepage
  2. Select the home page icon
  3. Press the lists tab (which should be close to your Twitter profile tab)
  4. Locate the create new list icon
  5. Add a title and short description
  6. Select whether it’s a private list or a public list
  7. Add individual users to the list

However, while this is the fundamentals of creating a new list, there is more to know.

In this short guide, I will walk you through how to create the lists for multiple devices, the benefits of using them, why you need them, and everything else you need to know.

Let’s get started.

What Is A Twitter List? (Benefits & Uses)

A Twitter list is a group of accounts you can curate together to keep your Twitter feed organized by interests, business, family, or friends. It’s like having your own separate Twitter feed to read and look at when you only want to see tweets from the accounts you’re interested in.

You can add or remove Twitter accounts, pin them to the top of your profile page, and follow new lists of interest from your homepage.

The benefits of using Twitter lists are organization, customization, and the ability to keep tweets specific to only you or a select number of members.

In addition, it also makes the social media platform more enjoyable and easier to navigate. For example, suppose you’re following thousands of individual user accounts. In that case, it can be a bit of a challenge to read them all, and often you’ll miss tweets from influential accounts, but with Twitter lists, things are easier to manage as you only see tweets from select lists or accounts.

How Do You Create A List On Twitter Mobile

The first step-by-step method I will show you is for creating a Twitter list on mobile.

According to Oberlo, over 11 million users of the Twitter app used mobile back in 2019 alone, and as of today, the number of downloads is in billions. Almost everyone who uses Twitter does so through the app, whether on Android, IOS, or Windows.

Let’s start with creating your list on an iPhone.

How To Create A Twitter List On iPhone

It’s pretty easy to create Twitter lists on an iPhone, and the steps to follow are below:

Step 1. Log In

If you haven’t already downloaded the app from the Apple app store, do so, create an account and log in.

Step 2. Locate Lists Tab

You locate the list tab to create your own lists by selecting the home icon on the mobile page and clicking your account profile image.

Step 3. Select The New List Button

The new list button on an iPhone is located towards the bottom of the screen once you select the list tab. It’s a blue circle with a square icon inside with a plus sign on top.

Step 4. Enter Name & Description

It helps if you give your Twitter list a name and description. You can call it anything you want, but typically you want it to be recognizable by you and the other users on the list.

Step 5. Is The List Private?

Select the private option if you want the Twitter list to be confidential or leave it as it is to make it public. For example, if the list is for your family, friends, workgroup, or a way for you to keep things less hectic, you might want to make it private; otherwise, leave it as a public list and allow other Twitter users to follow.

All that is left to do now is select the ‘create’ button and start adding users to your list.

Create Twitter Lists On Android

It’s just as easy to create a Twitter list on Android as it is on IOS, and below are the following steps:

Step 1. Download App

Log in and download the app if you don’t already have it on your device.

Step 2. Select The Plus Icon

When you’re logged in and on the app’s home page, you will notice three vertical dots, select this icon, and you’ll see a menu — select the lists option.

Step 3. Enter Details

Like all the methods, when you create a Twitter list, you need to enter a list name and a brief sentence or two about the list. You also need to decide if you want to make a list public or private.

Once you have done this, press the save button, and that’s it — just add people to your list, and you’re good to go.

How To Create A Twitter List From A Desktop Computer

Again, creating Twitter lists on a desktop is a simple process and, in some ways, more straightforward because you don’t need to download an app.

Step 1. Log In

Visit Twitter from your desktop computer and log in with your details.

Step 2. Select List From Home Page

On the left of the home page, you will notice a menu list with the option to select ‘lists’ — press this button.

Step 3. Tap Create List Button

At the top of the page, you will see a square icon with a + sign; this is the new list icon; select this option.

Step 4. Enter Details

Like the previous methods, you need to enter your list name and description and decide if you want to make a list public or private. However, it’s slightly different on the Twitter desktop because you must select the checkbox to make it private and the ‘next’ button once you have entered the details.

Step 5. Add Members

Scroll through your followers or use the search bar to add people to your list. Once finished, select ‘done,’ and your list is complete.
