How many Twitter lists am I on? (One way of finding out…)

Ever since the latest Twitter update, you may find yourself wondering: how many lists am I on? For whatever reason, the latest version of doesn’t want you to be able to see how many lists you’re on easily (or they forgot to include that feature. Either way, it bites). You could just go to your profile, click on “Lists”, then click on “Member of” and count them all, but that could be time consuming or impossible even, depending how many lists you are on (see below if this interests you):

This won’t be ideal for many of you, but one way that I’ve found, and it works like a charm, is through TweetDeck (the Chrome app, or the .com site). If you click on any handle, including your own, in TweetDeck, it brings up a screen like the one you see below:

Then you just have a gander to the right side of this pop-up screen, and voila! You can see how many lists you’re on!

Do you have any tips for seeing how many lists you’re on? Let me know in the comments!

    Brilliant write up, #Howto – You need to do one on the favorite button. So many on twitter seem to be afraid of wasting their limited allocation of faves??? Fave a way…..

    Favorites Button is like a soft RT—-Very effective.

      Thanks for the compliment! I was unaware there was a limit on how many tweets you can fave… I think it’s just that people don’t know about the feature, or they don’t understand how it works.

      Hmm, maybe a post on this is needed! I appreciate the suggestion :)

        I didn’t know there was a max on faves. And always thought my number of faves was pretty high. Usually in the range 1,200 to 1,500. It varies as I only use it to stock up on tweets and then retweet them later (after which I unfavorite).

        This way I can RT per topic, keyword, or my mood. Other than it just being a fun game, it is a good way to give someone a very special retweet. They often feel extra privileged.

        On the blog post, good write, but unfortunately I just traded in tweetdeck for other (just my personal taste).

    Love it! I’ve been really annoyed ever since Twitter took away that feature. I’ve been using HootSuite instead of TweetDeck lately, so I didn’t see this feature. I’m just finishing up a Twitter tips book that is coming out in Sept 2012, and I will cite this article (with a hyperlink) as as a resource. Will keep you posted when it comes out. :-)
