At the most basic level, there are two types of Tweeters: those who use it as a chat box with their network and those who use it to curate and broadcast relevant information to their network. Those who curate generally don’t stray too far from the theme of their feed. That means they don’t go off onto irrelevant tangential conversations or nonsequitur observations… they don’t overchat. Curators want to maintain a pristine feed.
Pristine feeds get on Twitter Lists
Pristine feeds that curate categorically by topic, geography, industry, hobby, and theme are prominent on Twitter Lists. Builders of business oriented or topical Twitter Lists will look for Tweeters that are specific to the theme of their Lists because the best Lists tell a real time “story” by aggregating common thread Tweets.
If you’re naturally a chatter but still want to maintain a targeted message for your business, we recommend creating two Twitter feeds, one personal and one professional. Even Twitter personalities like Robert Scoble have created pristine feeds for Lists and specific follower bases:
