There are several ways in which you can add someone on Snapchat. I’ll show you how to follow someone using the Snapcode but I’m also going to show you how to crack the code and break out of Snapchat!
Adding someone on Snapchat
A common method of following someone on Snapchat is to take a photo of the Snapcode, save it to the camera roll, open up the Snapchat app and tap on the little ghost at the top of the screen, then tap “Add friends”, then “Add by Snapcode”, and then tap on the Snapcode in order to scan it and add the new user.

Twitter can be difficult to consume if you follow more than a handful of people. Instead of trying to sip from Twitter’s mighty firehose, you can enjoy the different flavours from several different taps, using Twitter lists.
Curate content with Twitter lists
It’s impossible to read every tweet from everyone that you follow on Twitter. We can use Twitter lists to filter content by topic. For example, I’ve created lists for Australia News, World News. free music, South Australian wineries, Adelaide Pubs, and many more.
Create a Twitter list for an event
If you know of an event coming up build a Twitter list before the event. The list can be made private for you own use or it can be made public and you can promote it and encourage others to use it during the event.
Be aware that when building a public list each person added will be notified, but accounts added to a private list will not be notified.
Use this to your advantage.
