How to Remotely Log Out of Twitter?

Twitter is perhaps the least cooperative of major services in allowing you to remotely log out. For iOS users, there simply isn’t anything that can be done remotely and access to the Twitter app must be revoked from your iOS device. Needless to say, this is simply because Twitter is lazy.

To remotely log out a browser session or log out of the Twitter app for Android, you have to change your password. Head over to your account settings and under Password, reset your password. This will log you out of all Twitter sessions, including your Android app. iOS users are still without options.

How to Subscribe to other users’ public lists on Twitter?

When looking for people to follow, or people to add to your lists for competitive intelligence, you might want to see if others have already done some of the work for you by creating lists of relevant accounts. A great place to start is by looking at the public lists created by influencers in your field or your largest competitors. If a list looks worth investigating, you can simply subscribe to the list without having to duplicate it on your own account.

How to do it:

  1. Go to the profile page of an influencer in your field
  2. Then Click Lists
  3. Click on the name of the list you want to look at
  4. Click Subscribe

How to Embed Tweets on any website or blog?

You can share your own Tweets or anyone else’s online using Twitter’s built-in embed code.

How to do it:

  1. Find the Tweet you want to share
  2. Click the icon next to the heart icon
  3. Select Embed Tweet
  4. Copy the code and paste it into an HTML document (on a WordPress blog, paste the code into the “Text” view to include it in a post)

Bonus hack: You can also embed multiple Tweets from one or more accounts using embedded timelines.

How to Keep an eye on your twitter competitors without following?

  2. When choosing your list’s visibility, select Private

How to Schedule Tweets using Hootsuite

Okay, we may be biased on this one, but scheduling Tweets is one of our favorite Twitter tricks. If you’re interrupting your workflow to sign into Twitter, write Tweets, and post them throughout the day, you’re not making the best use of your time. It’s much more efficient to create your Tweets in one dedicated chunk of time, then schedule them to post throughout the day.

How to do it:

  1. In your Hootsuite dashboard, click Compose Message
  2. Type your message and include relevant links and photos if you have them
  3. Click to select a profile from the profile picker
  4. Click the calendar icon
  5. From the calendar, select the date for the message to be sent
  6. Select the time for the message to be sent
  7. Click Schedule

How to Search for lists in Twitter

What if you want to go deeper into list discovery, beyond lists belonging to influencers you’re already aware of? There’s no way within Twitter itself to search for lists, but that’s where Google comes in. Just like you can use search operators within Twitter to narrow your search results for Tweets, you can use search operators in Google to find Twitter Lists.

How to do it:

  1. Using Google, enter the following text before your search term: in url: lists

Segment your twitter feed with lists

If you’re following more than a couple hundred people (and you are, right?), it can become virtually impossible to keep track of the content you want to see. Enter Twitter Lists, which allow you to create custom feeds of groups like influencers, customers, leads, or prospects—so you can engage appropriately with each important group.

How to do it on Twitter:

For instructions for iOS or Android, visit the Twitter Help Center.

  1. Click on your profile icon to show the drop-down menu
  2. Then Click on Lists
  3. Click Create a new list
  4. Select a name for your list and a short description of the list. Then select if you want the list to be private (only accessible to you) or public (anyone can subscribe to the list)
  5. Click Save list
  6. To see the Tweets in your lists on Twitter, go to your profile page, click the Lists tab and click the name of the list

How to do it in Hootsuite:

  1. In your Hootsuite dashboard, click Add Stream
  2. Choose Twitter from the social network list on the left-hand side
  3. Click on the Lists tab
  4. Select your desired Twitter profile
  5. Check the bubble marked Create a new list
  6. Enter a name for your list and, if you like, a description
  7. Choose whether you’d like your list to be Public or Private
  8. Click the Add Stream button to create your list

How to Find out whose lists you’re on in twitter?

Knowing what lists you’re on helps give you a sense of how people perceive your account and helps you find potential new contacts who have not yet followed you.

How to do it:

Note—you can only find out whose lists you’re on using the iOS and web interfaces. There’s no option to do so in the Android app.

  1. From your profile page, go to your Lists tab
  2. Click Member of, then you will get the list that you are in.
