Recently the Twitter lists directory Listorious shut down to become the new service Muck Rack.
This has left a void in the Twitter Tools ecosystem for finding quality lists of influential and connected people on Twitter.
The twitter lists tool void is now filled by PeerReach and their Top 100 Worldwide Lists (PeerGroups.)
PeerReach is a free Twitter Tool that you can use to powerfully analyze and extend your Twitter audience in meaningful way.
How PeerReach Works
After logging into PeerReach with your Twitter account (30 second wait) you will immediately be shown the lists that your account is a member of.
Scrolling down your PeerReach profile page reveals four other network analysis tools that deal with:
- Followers (People with similar interests)
- Your Audience comparison (Compare audiences between people)
- Audience Insights (Audience growth over the course of time)
- Your Interests
In addition to profile analysis PeerReach also features an awesome new Twitter Lists directory.
Top 100 Worldwide Twitter Lists
On PeerReach users can browse through the Top 100 Worldwide Twitter lists or select one of the following nine regions:
- United Kingdom
Lists Topics Include:
The above listed are the featured PeerGroups, there are also 26 other PeerGroup topics at the bottom of the PeerGroups overview page.
Twitter Lists Power Tool: PeerGroups
One Click Twitter Lists
PeerGroups is the name that PeerReach has given to their awesome new Twitter lists tool.
These PeerGroups take advantage of the fact that Twitter recently expanded the number of lists that a user can follow from 20 to 2,000.
The powerful feature of new PeerGroups lists are the fact that they can be duplicated as an official Twitter list on your Twitter account with just one click.
In the PeerGroups list image below I have highlighted the button that will create the PeerGroups list as a Twitter list on your account.
Although the click takes only a second, creating the list may take several minutes depending on the availability of the Twitter API.
I used this feature to give me the foundation for a new Marketing Top 250 Twitter list that I will be using to stay on top of the latest marketing news. I am following the marketing niche more closely these days as I recently launched the new marketing blog Marketing Strategy HQ.
The Twitter audience comparison feature of PeerReach is another cool feature.
Twitter Audience Comparison Tool from PeerReach
This Twitter Analytics tool can easily compare the areas of influence for several different Twitter accounts at once.
Another great feature of PeerReach is their new collection of Top 100 Worldwide Twitter Lists.
PeerReach Google Chrome Extension
PeerReach also has a Google Chrome extension that shows the top rank of the main topic associated with the profile you are viewing.
Below is a snap shot of this feature from the Marketing Top 250 Twitter list I created with help from PeerReach.
With over 400 million active Twitter accounts the relevance of the people you follow is more important than ever.
PeerReach does a great job helping to cut through the noise on Twitter so you can pay attention to the conversation and content that matters most to you.
