How to Create Twitter Lists and Join them?

How to switch your Twitter feed to a chronological timeline

Many Twitter users follow thousands of other accounts and seeing all those accounts in one timeline can be quite overwhelming. If you want to see a limited Twitter timeline made up of tweets regarding specific topics, then Twitter Lists are the perfect option for you. A Twitter List is a separate Twitter feed made up only of accounts you’ve selected. Twitter Lists can be public or private. If you create a public list, other users can see it on your profile and can subscribe to it if they’re also interested in the topic. Private lists can be seen only by the creator.
