We’re geeks who use Twitter, right?  And for those of us who use Twitter to its actual potential, we take advantage of Twitter lists.

While I realize that some people organize their own lists in their own way because they have their own method to their madness, then there are those common threads that most of us probably can agree on.

Just how many of us have Twitter lists that overlap?

Did you know that Twitter caps the number of lists that you can have at 20? BUT, if you follow someone else’s list, it’d only count as one!  Imagine the reduction in overhead thanks to consolidation.

For the past 2 years, I have been trying to get the South Florida technology community on the same page, and I think that this would be a great way to start.

Let’s take a look at my lists for example:

    • https://twitter.com/#!/technomensch/org-acts/
    • https://twitter.com/#!/technomensch/fl-events
    • https://twitter.com/#!/technomensch/flsocialmedia
    • https://twitter.com/#!/technomensch/sflgeeks
    • https://twitter.com/#!/technomensch/sfl-food-geeks

Now, there is no way that I’m going to say that this list is 100% complete by any stretch of the imagination.

With the number of people we network with, combined with how frequently new users join Twitter, it’s almost impossible for all of us to keep track of everyone.

…And I’ll be the first to admit that it could probably use some trimming and moving around.

But as the South Florida SOCIAL Geeks, don’t we owe it to ourselves to at least make an attempt to share our knowledge with others?
