I recently signed up for a Twitter account. Suddenly I found myself in a world of tweets that poured into my inbox (I guess that’s what one calls it 🙂 before I could catch my breath. Overwhelmed at first, I began to explore the terrain and, to my pleasant surprise, discovered a wealth of information not only about writing, but also about a host of other subjects that interest me.
Twitter is a form of social media that is not for the faint-hearted. But the good news is that you can control your presence on Twitter and utilize it for your purposes.
Some of the people I “follow” are those related to the publishing industry, to higher education, and to the coaching profession–all areas in which I work and am interested.
How about you? Are you on Twitter? If so, how do you effectively use this venue to build your writing platform?
