Don’t let your Twitter feed control you. Ever wonder why it is called a feed? It can become a hungry beast eating up more and more of your time. Aimlessly scrolling through posts or Tweets consumes vast amount of time and produces very little results. Learn to think systematically about your approach to social media.

Ask yourself, what do I want from this experience?

What am I interested in learning more about?

Who would I like to know?

Is there something going on I should be involved in?

With this in mind go through your feed. If nothing fits your criteria, keep moving. Eventually you will find what you are looking for.

Keep and maintain lists. Lists are a great way to curate mini feeds about topics you are interested in. Maintaining lists can take a bit of extra time, but the reward of curating feeds of relevant information is huge.

Time is precious, once that moment ticks by, you can’t get back. Don’t get sucked down the rabbit hole! Tame the little blue bird and make it work for you!
