Have you discovered @ListNotify yet? We’ve talked about the benefit of creating your very own twitter lists in this space before, and have talked about a handy list service (Formulist) to help you build your lists. Today, I have another tool to add to your twitter experience for our weekly “Twitter Tuesdays” together: List Notify.
How does @ListNotify work? When a twitter follower adds YOU to one of his or her own twitter lists, ListNotify will automatically notify you via a handy tweet.
I like this free service because I think it’s helpful to receive this kind of notification.
Acknowledgement of the listing you’ve received by sending the twitter user a thank you for the listing tweet may be in order.
I typically send thanks if it is clearly a list the twitter user manually created, adding me personally. Make sense? You can usually detect an auto Formulist-style listing, because of the standard list names often used (such as “people-like-me”, or “recently followed me”, etc.).
