Twitter Lists Profile – Better than Linkedin

Each Twitter list has a name. When you get added to that list you are identified by the list owner as belonging to that subject area.  I am fascinated by the way different people see me.

Generally speaking the topical subjects accurately represent some facet of my life. I just find it interesting to see what lens a person chooses to see me through.

Below I sorted the listed into reasonable and sometimes questionable groups. I can see patterns and I think you will too.
I dare say that since the meaning provided here is created by others, it may provide a more accurate profile of JBS Partners than Linkedin. What do you think? Just skim the headings down the page.

Here is a sorted grouping of Twitter Lists that I find myself on.

Content Strategy:

  1. content-stratetweeps


I would say that there are only a few possible mistakes. For example if someone is thinking that I live in LA, well that was decades ago, and only near LA. I was born there though. Content Strategy, I wish. I have a lot of respect for those talented content strategists.

It’s interesting to look at the proportions in each list. Strangely they are kind of accurate in some ways. I can see patterns. I am glad that there is a strong theme in what we might call the friendship area as well as the technical areas that I work in day in and day out.

What patterns do you see?

How are you communicating to a person when you put them on  list?  What are you saying?
Does this give you a better idea of what I do than my JBS Partners Linkedin Profile?
