Do you tweet?
You may have noticed that the whole world seems to be buzzing with the newest social-networking trend: www.Twitter.com. And now Writer’s Relief is happy to say that we’ve joined the ranks of Twitterers, and because of that you can chat with us at almost any time online!
What is Twitter?
For those of you who don’t know, Twitter is a site that lets you “update your status” (write what you’re doing now), chat, or share information with old friends and new in phrases of 140 characters or less. It’s free and easy to join—and hey, everybody’s doin’ it, dude.
Rumor has it that some writers have even started writing stories and poems on Twitter; the limit on characters is a challenge and inspiration for writers to pack a whole lot of information in just a few words.
Follow Writer’s Relief on Twitter, and if you have a question, give us a shout. Also, check out our latest tweets on the left sidebar of our blog! See what we’re up to today!
Reader Question: Do you Tweet? Do you think Twitter—and the idea of it—is good for writers? Or is Twitter more of an annoyance than a help for creative writers?
Ronnie–I’m didn’t realize exactly what ‘twitter’ was until I read your comments. Oddly, I won Honorable Mention in a Canadian twitter poem contest in Feb!! How do I share it with you?
I think twittering might be a slight annoyance since I’m not online every day. However, should you twitter punctuation or advice,it might be delightful. I would have to try it first.
I got a kick out of "Byronic Hero". I have a few of those in my works, yet never knew that’s what they were called.
‘Tho my head’s in a whirl,
You do nice work, girl!
I enjoy your newsflash pages so much. ~Wanda
