Are you aware of IFTTT service? If not, then here’s something you should know about it. IFTTT stands for “IF THIS THAN THAT”. It is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called “recipes” which helps in automating web-application tasks.
If you are on Twitter then probably you must be aware of Twitter lists. If you are following many people on Twitter & don't wan't to miss your favorite people's conversations then Twitter list is the best option. I follow a lot of people on Twitter & personally use Twitter lists to keep in touch with my favorite people so I don't miss reading their tweets. But to manage Twitter lists on a regular basis becomes tedious. Hence with the help of these IFTTT recipes I manage my Twitter lists seamlessly:
- Automatically add users who mention you to a Twitter list
This recipe adds users to a Twitter list specified by you if they mention you.
- Automatically add users who tweet about a specific hashtag to a Twitter list
This recipe add users to a Twitter list if they tweet about a specific hashtag you set. (If you participate in many tweetchats then this recipe will be very useful to add people who are tweeting about that chat to a specific list).
- Like a tweet to add that user to a specific Twitter list
This recipe adds users whose tweets you have liked to a specific list.
Tip: Make sure you keep these twitter lists to private in order to avoid sending notifications to them about they being added to your list as these notifications go on repeat mode every time the action takes place & this might irritate them.
I hope these IFTTT recipes will make a difference in your Twitter activities specially when it comes to managing Twitter lists. If you happen to try any of these recipes, feel free to share your reviews with me.
