HootSuite allows users to have all social networking sites in one place. One of the sites that can be integrated into HootSuite is Twitter. Anything that can be done from the Twitter website can be done from HootSuite, including editing lists by adding or deleting people to follow.
- Skill level:
Log into your HootSuite account at hootsuite.com.
Click on the "Contacts" button in the left navigation bar. Select your Twitter username from the drop-down menu under where it says "Lists."
Select the list you want to edit. Click on the down arrow underneath the user's picture to follow or unfollow them, or to remove them from the list.
Click on a user's picture in any stream and then click "Add to List" to add them to a list. Note, however, that to do this, you must add the lists to HootSuite first. To do this, click on "Add Stream" and select the profile you want to use. Click the "Lists" tab and then select the list you want to add. Click "Create Stream." Do this for each list you want to add to HootSuite.
Tips and warnings
- Alternatively, once you add the list stream to HootSuite, you can edit by clicking the down arrow next to the name of the list and selecting "Preferences." Enter the name of the user you want to edit to the list and click "Add." Click "Done" when you are finished. Click the "X" next to the user's name to remove him from the list, then click "Done" to save.
