For today’s post, I’m going to briefly tangent my usual cover work posts to a post about twitter. I’ve had a twitter account for a while now, but I really couldn’t really say I tweeted. Mostly, I used it to keep up to date with industry news. Since it’s used for small amounts of texts, Twitter works great for people and businesses to posts links to news or other blog posts, usually with a little tag noting what it’s about. When I first set up my account, I followed publishers, agents, and authors whose blogs I admired. It was a great way to keep up with news, find out new information I was interested in, and generally keep up to date without having to read every blog post out there.
I pretty much watched Twitter invisibly for several months. Then, here recently, I realized there were some links I wanted to be able to return to easily to refresh my memory (writing advice, mostly), and my favorites folder is invariably overwhelmed by random links. So, I started using the retweet function. The posts now show up on my Twitter feed so I can see them again easily, but also, so I can share blogs I found useful easily. I recently updated my photo and header to make it a bit more unique.
Just thought I’d share. It’s been a useful way to sort through information. 🙂
