At times we feel that we might have skipped important tweets of our friends / peers / other imp persons in our life. One of the major reason is that our timeline has become so heavier that we only end up reading tweets from famous personalities like hollywood / bollywood stars, media persons and people whom we just follow and don’t interact and likewise.

So, what is the alternative of having only our friends in our timeline and still following people with whom we don’t interact directly but we still wish to see what they are doing.

What I generally do is that I don’t follow any of the famous personalities but have made lists in twitter and added them to those lists. So effectively, I am not following them directly but I can still read what they are doing in my lists whenever I feel like.

I know you may be thinking why would anyone follow them then?

Frankly speaking, I don’t know the answer but may be their die hard fans want to increase the number of followers as today, greater the list, stronger the personality.

The other reason could be to get follow back from people whom you follow and thus increasing your follower list.

You can start reviewing your following list and stop following people who are not following you and add them to a list if you still want to read them indirectly. That way your timeline will be nice and clear.

Here is one of the lists of all Bollywood stars that you can follow. There are other lists too that you might be interested in.
