Laura Pauling has a great post about the pitfalls of Twitter today--I encourage you to check it out and also play along with our TwitterGame. We'll be using hashtag #badquerytips.
I've been on Twitter for a while, but have only recently started "tweeting" more regularly. Or comfortably. I started just to follow writers (and lets face it, agents. LOL). But as I've become more comfortable putting myself out there in 140 characters or less, I've chatted with really cool people in various stages of their writing careers.
I think the important thing to remember with Twitter is that you have to be yourself. Retweet the comments you like (everyone appreciates that), including your own links. BUT, it's also about the social (it's not called a social network for nothing!). So go ahead and engage. Play TwitterGame with us. Let down your guard (but keep it appropriate--in my opinion, you've got to remember that people are watching you.)
I'd love to meet you on Twitter! Follow me @KristineAsselin
Also playing (I think) are Laura (@laurapauling), Kelly (@kellypolark), Tina (@tinalaurellee), Heather (@HeatherGKelly) and Anita! Make sure to follow all these lovely ladies so you don't miss out on a single game!!
