How to add yourself to a Twitter List you created

When you create Twitter Lists and allow others to subscribe to that list, there’s a problem… you can’t actually add yourself to that list using Twitter.

For instance, we created a Twitter List called “Townsville Businesses” and we want to add other Townsville businesses Twitter Profile to that list so we can filter on tweets from only Townsville businesses that we follow. This cuts down the noise and lets us focus on adding value to Townsville businesses, who are our primary target market. We LOVE Townsville…

Anyway, we also want other people to “Subscribe” to that list so they too can get to see the tweets from Townsville businesses. Problem is Twitter won’t let you add yourself to a list you have created, which is sad as you want your tweets to display in the list…. BUT there is a work around and here it is…Add Yourself to a Twitter List

  1. Sign in to Twitter;
  2. In a separate browser window, go to and sign up for a free account;
  3. Click on “LISTS”;
  4. Click on the list you want to add yourself to;
  5. Click on “EDIT”;
  6. Enter your Twitter handle in the search box and when you profile displays click on the “+” to add yourself to your own Twitter List;
  7. Check your LIST on your Twitter Profile and you should be in that LIST.

Did this help you? Could you pay us for our time with a +1 or a social share, we’d really appreciate it…
