I have been a Facebook person for almost a year. It has brought me closer to writing friends and colleagues as well as some very dear friends who live miles from my home. Not only has Facebook proven to be a wonderful social networking tool for my writing but it has also helped me meet and befriend others in the writing world in ways I could never do via snail mail.
Yesterday I decided to attempt Twitter. I’ve heard lots of references to tweets on the news, in Facebook posts and online. So….I am now experimenting. I’m again taking baby steps, easing into the world of tweets and following writers and publishers I recognize. Still no followers for me but my only tweets are simply…basically saying, “Hi, I’m tweeting!”
I am researching the pros and cons of Twitter and will be watching the site for any insightful help for my fledgling writing career. If it becomes too much of a time crunch to maintain both…so far Facebook is my preference.
Honestly, I am still trying to decipher all the @ and # and other symbols I see in Twitter posts. It may turn out to be too sophisticated for this writer!!! I don’t know if my conversations would all be private, public or either…so I am still learning. Lol, although I haven’t had any tweets to me so far!!!
What do you think of Twittering?
