The Twitter list is a great way to stay up with activity, participate in relevant discussions, and curate content and allows you to sort your favorite Twitter accounts and browse the most recent relevant stuff they have shared. Using marketing and monitoring tools like Hootsuite in conjunction with Twitter lists might provide valuable information on how your favorite accounts are performing.
Let’s look at how you may make the most of Hootsuite’s features.
How to Add Someone on Twitter Using Hootsuite
Once you’ve saved a list of Twitter accounts, you can connect them to Hootsuite streams to manage your presence on the social media network more effectively.
After connecting your Twitter list in Hootsuite, you will be able to schedule and automate processes such as posting, performance assessment, audience engagement, flagging essential conversations, and much more.
The Twitter lists can be viewed as Hootsuite streams from the platform’s straightforward interface. To access streams on Hootsuite, you must first create a list on Twitter, which is simple to do.
Here’s how to make a list on Twitter:
Access your Twitter account using the mobile app or the desktop website.
Select any tweet from the account you wish to include in the lists.
At the side of the Tweet, tap on the three horizontal buttons to access various options.

If you’re making a list for the first time, fill up the fields in the options that appear.
You may also choose whether you want your followers’ public or private list.
Creating a New Twitter List in Hootsuite
If you’ve never made a Twitter list before, you can do so directly from your Hootsuite dashboard. When you create it and add users to it, it will be available when you log in to Twitter. However, if you already have Twitter lists, you’ll need to import them to Hootsuite using the same method.
Just above your current columns, click “Add Stream.”
Select the Twitter and Lists tab in the new window.
Select your Twitter profile from the drop-down menu.
If you have any existing lists, they will appear in the next box under your selected Twitter profile. Choosing one of the current Twitter lists will import it into your Hootsuite dashboard as a new stream/column.
If you don’t have a Twitter list, select “Create a New List.”
Make a name for the list.
Add a description if you like; this is optional but handy for lists you’ll share or if you create a lot of lists with similar names.
Select between a public or private list.

Your new list will be inserted as a stream/column to the far right of the tab you were currently seeing. If you don’t see it on the right, scroll to the right. Most screens will only display four columns at a time.
Adding Individuals to a Twitter List in Hootsuite
After you’ve created your Hootsuite Twitter list, you’ll need to add various accounts, or it will become empty. There are two ways to add people to your new Twitter list, either directly from Hootsuite or Twitter list stream preferences.
THROUGH THEIR PROFILE
Accounts that are new to you or that you discover through searches or retweets from others can be added to a list in Hootsuite via the menu on their Twitter profile.
To add a Twitter account to a list, click on its profile picture. A new window will open with their Twitter profile details.
