The Most Interesting Thing: Twitter Tips for the Twitterpated
Tips for beginners:
How to get started: go here to create an account
Bio: Here's an article to help you with your bio
Avatar: Choose a photo or an image to represent you. No one seems to want to follow an egg. ^_^
Don't know who to follow? Here are a couple of lists of children's writer peeps you could peruse:
Peeps from Verla Kay's Blueboards
Agents and Editors
You can follow a list or follow individuals. You can create lists of your own. I use my lists when I don't have much time and I want to see the latest from the peeps I interact with the most.
Tips for the twitterpated:
#1 Before following someone, peruse their tweets to see if they're just marketing themselves or whether they're interacting with others.
#2 Use the Block button. It is your friend.
#3 Don't be afraid to reach out and @ someone. Join the conversation.
#4 Keep private information private. Use direct messages when warranted.
#5 If someone tweets something hilarious, helpful, or has good news to share, by all means, hit the retweet button.
