If everybody I know tweets, how come they haven't found me and I haven't found them on Twitter?
Okay, I admit it. I just don't get Twitter. I mean, I've been on it for like two years, and I don't get it. I've even taken an online class about it and still haven't picked up the intricacies.
I use Tweetdeck, which seems a lot more coherent than just a plain Twitter account, and this way I can coordinate my various personas. Nice. But what am I supposed to tweet?
And it seems like almost all my followers are other authors. We're all telling each other about our books and not selling any of them.
I find people who tweet constantly to be a real PITA and I unfollow them as soon as possible. I mean, do I need to know every time they burp or take a sip of Diet Coke?
I'm not saying I'm going to pitch Tweetdeck any time soon, but I don't even log on every day.
If you use Twitter, what do you think the greatest benefit is?
BTW, if you WANT to follow me, I'm @LornaBarrett @LorraineBartlet @LLBartlettbooks
