Call me slow, but I have finally joined the Twittershere.
Here’s what I’ve found so far:
- Twitter is not so much about relationships – I guess that time has passed.
- No, I don’t want to buy your book. “I mute you. I mute you. I mute you.” (Yay! for Tweetdeck!)
- I find it weird that people tweet about themselves in third person.
- I’ve found lots of new resources: writing, marketing, history.
- And medieval manuscripts – – images work! I’m an artist. I’m visual. I’m giddy with the eye candy.
- But I quickly decided pictures without links to the original source irritate me. So I’m being careful not to post them myself and I’m no longer retweeting them.
- I lurked on my first live Twitter chat. That was like drinking from a fire hose. But I figured out how to just follow the feed of the main speaker and block out the other noise.
Not too bad for a newbie.
I’ve updated my Creative Accountability Page with my writing progress.
And added a blog post to the Long Ago & Far Away site. (The blog for Historical Fiction Off the Beaten Path).
I’d love to hear how you are using Twitter these days. Have you been at it for a while? Has it changed for you? Do you use it to interact directly with people? Or just participate in the big shotgun fest?
