How To Create Twitter Collections. Step by Step Guide With Images

 

Twitter introduced Custom Timelines on November 12, 2013, and soon renamed them Collections.

Collections are a new type of timeline you control: you create the collection, give it a name, and select which Tweets to add. Collections are public, have their own pages on twitter.com, and can easily be embedded on your website.

Here’s an example of one of my Collections:

6. If you want to share a collection, click on “Share” and you’ll see three options: Embed timeline, View on twitter.com, Tweet about this timeline.

  1. If you click on Embed timeline, you’ll be redirected to the Twitter Widget creator where you can setup your collection widget and get the embed code.
  2. If you choose the second or third option, you’ll find your collection link and you’ll be able to share it wherever you want.

Please, note that Tweets get added to the timeline in the order you add them, so they are not chronological. You can delete them, but you can’t drag them to reorder them.

 

USING COLLECTIONS

Here’s a small list of what you can do with Twitter Collections:

  • Collect tweets about a live event or a news story
  • Curate a topic
  • Organize and archive a Q&A tweets
  • Collect feedback tweets
  • List testimonial tweets

Update
On June, 19 2015, Twitter announced: “We’re also beginning to test new ways for people and brands to create and share Twitter collections of products and places. You’ll be able to browse rich collections from influencers you care about and get more information about the products or places you find interesting”.

So here’s another idea for your won collections: lists of products and places you love.
