Master Tweeting for Authors-2

So we’re back to Twitter again, huh?  If you missed the first post, you can find it HERE.

So much to know, so little time.  In fact SO much to know, that I ended up cutting this post off at one topic, when I’d planned on covering several.  But, the truth is, the almighty @ took up so much room, I didn’t want to totally bog you down with other things, too.  I’ve chosen another date in April to finish it all up.

There is a lot of nitty gritty here, but it’s valuable nitty gritty.  The kind of stuff that I wish I’d known early on, because I wouldn’t have learned by mistakes.  It might look cluttered at first glance, but I’ve tried to par it down to digestable little snipits with examples.

It’s all about the @ on Twitter.

Master Tweeting for Authors

Okay, I’m no master, but this is not a how to beginners guide, either.  We already know you’re on it and using it, but are you using it to your full advantage?

If you think you’re not interested in Twitter, if you hear Twitter and think, I don’t have time for that, or I have nothing to tweet, or what a waste of time…I have a couple of stories for you at the end of the tips section that may change your mind.  If nothing else they are warm and fuzzy stories.  We can all use a few more warm fuzzies in the world, no?

I haven’t always been a Twitter fan.  I swear my first few weeks on Twitter killed thousands of braincells.  What do you mean, no threads?  How am I supposed to keep track of anything or anyone? What the hell is everyone talking about?

I felt like I’d been dropped in the middle of a cocktail party where I knew no one and kept picking up partial conversations of which I couldn’t quite elbow myself into.

I missed the organization of threads on Facebook, my original social media of choice, and eventually deleted my Twitter account.  But then guess what happened?  Yep, a few weeks later, I realized I missed the immediacy and intimacy and utter rampage of information on Twitter.

What was a girl to do?  I got TweetDeck.  But I’m not going to talk about TweetDeck today, I’m going to talk about Twitter and what I’ve learned about the nuances of that particular social media that made it more manageable and less chaotic.
