Today, I just gave some attention to a part of Twitter that I've pretty much ignored - lists. Yes, I've created a slew of lists, but I rarely go back to them unless I am doing some research on a particular subject or industry expert.
While I was checking my notifications, I noticed someone had added me to a Twitter list that would be more appropriate for my personal Twitter account. When I clicked on the list hoping to find a way to remove myself from it, much to my surprise, there was not a way to do so. That's when I decided to pay a visit to my good friend Google. I found a great article there, "How To: Remove Yourself From Stupid Twitter Lists" by Aaron Lee.
Here are the steps that Aaron shared with us:
1. Click on the Twitter list that you’ve been listed on.
2. Click on the user/Twitterer that created that list
3. Click BLOCK
4. Click UNBLOCK
5. Done! Check your Twitter list and you’re not in the ... list that you don’t want anymore.
Voilà, I am no longer in that list.
In addition to learning how to remove myself from a Twitter list, I also learned that there are some people - who I've never come in contact with - who have put me on Twitter lists with some top notch marketing and social Media experts. One of which is called "Cool & Clever People" by @ContentPlus. What an honor to be called cool and clever at the same time! :-)
P.S. - Guess who I added to my list of cool & clever people? None other than @AskAaronLee! Thanks Aaron, you saved the day.
