Tweet, twafic, tweetastic. Oh the amazing world of twitter. Is it a waste of time, a way to expand your business or is it a new way to make friends? Whether or not you are a twitterer most people have heard of twitter and have an opinion. And they vary from being huge fans to being completely antagonistic.
As an author I have joined the twitterverse. I was a reluctant convert. Well, let’s face it…I’m reluctant to try many new internet things. But this is my year of living dangerously and so I joined the twitter landscapte a few months ago. I thought I would just get my name and drop the occasional tweet, but it turns out I like twitter. I’m a twitter fan.
Now, for any of you you follow me on twitter, you’ll know I’m not a frequent poster. But I like it. I like the little bite sized pieces I see of my friends days. I like the way people who don’t know me at all want to follow me! I miss it when I can’t post and when I can’t see what my tweeps are up to. I even find myself talking to my husband about it, “You’ll never guess what putpseudonymhere posted today!”
Will twitter advance my career? Will it be the place where I meet the agent of my dreams? Will readers flock to my tweets? Maybe, maybe not. But I’ll tell you what it will do. It will be the place where I get to see snippets of my fellow authors days, where we can get our social fix, and where I can see that there are other crazy people out there, just like me!
