The Green-Walled Twitter

I just joined Twitter and I’m still not sure I know how I feel about it.

I’ve been a member of Facebook for years and that’s fine, but I’ve always been resistant to Twitter. Maybe it was the name, which sounds a bit like it’s all inane chatter, or maybe it was the stories I heard of people tweeting what they ate for breakfast or how many pieces of junk mail they received.

So why now? Well, I’ve been thinking about it for some time. Part of it was finding things I wanted to say that were too short for a blog post and no where to say them. Ah, the plight of the poor individual with a pithy 140-character remark and nowhere to express it! As well, Twitter is so well established now, that it’s a good chance for a lot of exposure. But I will always be a late adopter, and proud of it.

My username is @greenwalltower, so if you’re on Twitter, go follow me. I’ll try to follow you back too.

See? It's legit.

    I never really know what to do with twitter 😀

    I think twitter is really quite good if you get the hang of interacting with other people on it. It’s better if you worry less about how many followers you have, or whether lots of people think your tweets are cool, and think more about finding people who you can start a dialogue with.

    Am kind of overwhelmed by Twitter myself 😉 I have only been using it to publcise my posts so far.

    I have a Twitter account for my direct-sales business with PartyLite, but I have yet to establish one for my work as a freelancer. When I’m doing what I should with PartyLite, I simply send out a single Tweet a day–sometimes just a picture, other times information about specials or what I’m doing that day.

    Fellow writers have bemoaned the time they end up spending on Twitter. My way around that is not doing anything but sending out my single Tweet. I suppose that’s not particularly being a team player, but honestly, I don’t have time or much interest in hanging out there too much.

    Anyway, welcome to the Twitterverse. Whenever I establish my writing account, I’ll look you up.

    Cheers!

    David, I’m on Twitter too, and have it connected to my WordPress blog and also to Facebook so that whenever I post on WP it goes into my Twitter and Facebook page feed. So, has its advantages. At first I challenged myself to write only meaningful self quotes or little tidbits to put on Twitter, then saw like you that there is a bunch of nonsense stuff posted, so try to make mine at least something worth reading or quotable. 🙂 I keep a fun file in my writing projects called, Sweet Tweets where I work on new tweets to use that I can post later.

    I’m planning on joining soon, so when I do I will look for you! Yay! I’m kind of resistant to just more because I feel like I have enough…but I hear Twitter is a great place to make connections with other writers. Good move!

    • David Stewart

      I haven’t done much with it yet. Unfortunately, I’m too busy to do everything else I want to do, let alone another thing. But it will still be there when I have time. If/when you join, definitely let me know. 🙂 (thank you for reading so many of my recent posts, by the way. I appreciate it.)

      • Amy Reese

        I will definitely find you. I feel the same. Do I really want to take on something else? Don’t mention it. It’s my pleasure. I know I missed a couple. You are so prolific, it’s hard to keep up with you.

Let me know what you think. I appreciate all comments and criticisms.
