Using Twitter Effectively

How many of you have a Twitter account? (Yes, I realize there are those who don't and understand why not-- this isn't to make you feel bad because you don't Tweet, or force you to Tweet).

I have an account I opened at the urging of some friends (Thanks guys!).  We used it to chat back and forth with each other.  Then, last year I had this huge reading thirst and was offline for about a month (I know-- I can't believe it either, but it's true!)

When I came back, I slowly got back into blogging, but Twitter has been hit and miss.  I try to remember to post when I update my blog (and usually forget), and occasionally I post that #Iamwriting, or #Iamrevising. 

In the end, I find that I am not using Twitter effectively at all.  So I ask: How do you use Twitter?  Has it helped with your writing?  Have you made contacts in the writing world through it?  Has it made an impact on your blog?

  1. I'm not hooked on Twitter, but I try to see what's happening once per day at least.


Thanks for dropping by. I love reading comments and will respond by e-mail as soon as possible.
