Twitter is a wonderful social media tool to connect with other writers in your own genre. If you write historical fiction, for example. Find other writers in that genre and follow them. Twitter is a great way to keep up with what is going on in the publishing community.
Sending out messages on Twitter is called "tweeting" and it limits your messages to 140 characters, so they should be short and direct. We'll talk about "tweeting" tomorrow.
4. For extra exposure, post your Twitter name in the comments section of this blog post. Here is an example: @infinitybooks
