To Tweet or not to Tweet

July 29, 2010

I’ve been toying with the idea of making a Twitter account for these reasons:

-Authors and even some publishers are on Twitter
-I can quickly tweet an author/publisher that I posted a review regarding one of their books
-I can tweet all of you who have Twitter and discuss the many wonders of life

But quite frankly, I don’t want another social networking thingamabobber. For all of you who have Twitter, do you like it? Would you recommend for me to create an account? Is it not as useful for a book blogger as it appears?

    I created a Twitter account a year or two ago… At first, I was following friends and celebs, but then it got to be too spamish, so I fell out of step.

    Now that I have a blog, I set it up to automatically tweet links to my posts, so any of my followers can follow that way if they want. It also earns lots of extra entries in contests, though I don’t know if it matters as much to you.

    Overall, I don’t see Twitter as being hugely great, but it’s also not a big deal if you ignore it for a while.

    Well, I’m addicted to twitter but that’s because I’ve had mine for almost 3 years…but if it weren’t for twitter, my blog wouldn’t be where it is today. I use twitter to contact authors, spread word about giveaways, meet other bloggers, and much more! ONe day you’ll look back and see what I mean. IT takes a little time and some talking to people, but it’s the best thing ever! So the answer is yes! You should totally get an account!
