With so many tweets flooding our feeds, twitter isn’t the easiest space to navigate. Whether you’re a newby, or an old hand, this post aims to help you find tweets about writing (discussion, advice, chats & prompts) and choose relevant hashtags to invite fellow writers to interact with your tweets.
A year and a half ago, I was a technophobe who didn’t see the point of social media, until I discovered Twitter’s #WritingCommunity. On twitter, I made friends and met many writers who have helped me on my editing journey and with preparation to query my first novel. Being a relative technophobe, Twitter was initially alien to me and quite a learning curve. Whether twitter is merely a next step for you, or a leap out of your comfort zone, I hope these tips will help you get started if you’re new, or continue to settle in if you’re new-ish.
