Follow Friday: My Genealogy list on Twitter

I have one - only one - Twitter account. It is @jeanne_eckman. Since I only have one, I found it most helpful to create a few lists, genealogy being one of them. At the moment there are 56 included on my particular list. Some I follow and some I only include on my list. Some are organizations, like the Lancaster Historical Society; some are companies, like Ancestry.com; and some are other genealogists, and historians.

Can you check out my list? Of course you can! You can even "subscribe" to it. How you ask? Simple!

First, go to https://twitter.com/jeanne_eckman. That's me! Then click on "More". A drop drown list will appear. Click on "Lists".

A list of lists will then appear. As you can see, I have a few different lists. Click on the one for Genealogy and simply "subscribe"!

A list is a great way to organize everyone. You can have someone in more than one list as well.

Want to start your own list? On the far right, see where it says "Create list"? Click on that and a box will appear in the center of your screen. Name your list. Give it a description if you'd like as well. You may also choose between making the list public (like most of mine) or private (meaning only you will be able to access it).

Oh - and the best part about Twitter? It is FREE and can be a great networking tool.
