Nice To Tweet You …

What is Twitter good for? Absolutely everything!

I confess, when Twitter first started I was very sceptical. I thought: ‘it’ll be full of a bunch of nobodies telling us about what they’re doing every five minutes.’ And, to be honest, who really wants to know?

But, as a budding writer, I was constantly being bombarded with the idea that to get my writing noticed I should embrace social media. Not just Twitter but Facebook, Blogger, WordPress  LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr and MySpace … the list goes on.

Yeah, ‘crikey’ that’s what I thought. To involve myself in ALL of the above would leave no time to play away from the internet. I chose my social media networks with care.

I’m gradually working my way around twitter and learning how to interact there. The 140 character limit is pretty challenging, but a good lesson in choosing your words and images carefully when promoting yourself and your work.

Whatever you may think of social media it’s here to stay so we might as well make the most of it, eh?
