The Adventures of Twitter Listing

Don’t say that title several times quickly. Phew!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a public service post about the art of Richard Armitage watching and in particular navigating RA Universe on Twitter. This one is because some of you have been wondering how you can follow a Twitter account and your follow is invisible. Oh, you’re not wondering that? I guess this post is for those who are. :D And, I also realize there are many of you who already know how to do this. Obviously, this post is not for you either, but if you have something to add, please do.

On my RAFrenzy account I have a list called RAProjects, and on that list I have people and entities who are involved with Richard Armitage or are potentially involved with him. It’s a fascinating list but private ’cause well, I’m not sure if it’s fun to reveal or say everything you know as soon as you know it.

But enough about that.

Before I begin, please note that all screencaps can be enlarged by clicking them.

Listing someone in native Twitter on desktop (as opposed to using a Twitter client such as Hootsuite):

Click on the cog next to the follow button, and then you’ll see that drop down menu where you select ‘Add or remove from lists.’

Next you will see a screen something like this:

Next you will see a screen like this:

Be sure to click on ‘Private’ before you save it.

Here it is in the iOS app:

Once you click on ‘Add/remove from lists,’ you will see this screen where you merely click on the list you want and hit ‘Done’:

If you don’t have a list made, then you can do so this way:

011

When you select ‘Lists’, you will see this screen where you click on the plus to add a list:

Be sure to turn on ‘Private’ before you click ‘Save’:

For android users, it’s similar, but here are some instructions if you’re not comfortable.

FYI: my most fascinating list is one that is not even related to Richard Armitage. It’s prosaically named ‘Interesting,’ and I have had more fun and pleasure from that list than anything I’ve done on Twitter. Made some friends from it as well, and they eventually became
mutual follows. I think almost none of them knew who Richard Armitage was. But they do now. LOL!

Yes, you can bet your sweet ass that Richard Armitage has some accounts privately listed, and if he doesn’t:

Rich,

If you aren’t using private lists, you should be.

That is all.

A crazy fan
