Luke 12:34 says: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (NIV translation).  I wonder if Twitter would have existed nearly 2,000 years ago, if this might have also read, “Where your Twitter lists are, there your passion will be also” (social media translation)… Maybe not… But, I do think that the types of folks you ‘follow’ on Twitter and the types of tweets you publish are indicative of your interests/passions.  They certainly are for me.


I tend to use Twitter as more of a personal development tool to follow topics (lists) that interest me.  Today, I am following these types of tweeters:

1) Lean tweeters – There are 68 people in my list who generally post tweets about Lean (Toyota Production System).  The current vocation I choose is as a Senior Consultant in the implementation of Lean.

2) Leaders – I have a list of folks(abut 60) that I follow who write and tweet about the topic of leadership.  Leadership and personal development have been a passion for me over the 20 years of my working career.

Other lists that I have are folks who tweet about 3) WVU football, 4) Sports in general, 5) Health Care organizations, 6) political figures, whether they be politicians or media, and 7) Fitness tweeters .  I use Hootsuite to browse these lists periodically.  It allows me to “at a glance” see the topics of interest so I don’t have to go through all the noise associated with a jumbled list.

Do you use Twitter?  If so, do you use lists to follow topics or tweet on those things you are passionate about?  You can follow me on Twitter by clicking on the logo above, or CLICK HERE
