Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 460 comments Are there any Twitters out there, and if so, do you think it has helped to promote your book sales?

I just joined twitter and would love to connect with others. Below is my Twitter addy:

I just started to "twit" a couple days ago. The best part about twitting is that it takes so little time.

Goodreads Authors that Tweet!
[send me your twitter addy and I will add it to the list:]

G.R. (grcollia) I am a Twit, but I haven't done much in the way of tweeting. I don't think I'm making the most of it... need to get into the swing of things.

My Twitter addy is:

http://twitter.com/gcolliasuzuki

And I am following you, Dee! :o)


message 3: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 460 comments Yippie! Hi Gina.

This is too much fun...I am also following you. Hope you don't get blown away, but get to read a lot of books today ;]


message 4: by G.R. (new)

G.R. (grcollia) I haven't been so far, but the day is young! I have a huge... nay, humongous, pile of books beside me. I could do with being snowed in for six months with no Internet connection and ear plugs.


message 5: by Author (new)

Author (killthemessengergemini) | 30 comments Everywhere I post I put the book I am currently reading like on twitter so those people are getting the promotion.


message 6: by G.R. (new)

G.R. (grcollia) When I add a book to my Goodreads shelf, it updates Twitter so everyone knows what I added. There's a widget thingy somewhere that I signed up to.


message 7: by Author (new)

Author (killthemessengergemini) | 30 comments That's cool but way over my head.


message 8: by G.R. (new)

G.R. (grcollia) Johanna, you know, I managed it but I can't for the life of me figure out how! I clicked something but where that something was is now beyond me.


message 9: by Author (new)

Author (killthemessengergemini) | 30 comments Good deal. It works and that's what matters. You are smarter than you think.

That's good... if it worked out the other way I'd be in real trouble ;o)

I've just set up SMS thingies so I can tweet from my mobile 'phone. I'll be able to tell the world when I'm squeezing a melon in the supermarket.

Keara Clifford (KearaClifford) | 6 comments H evryone :) my twitter thingy is : http://twitter.com/KearaClifford

I'm new to it as well but I think that the more friends you have, the info you put on it will be read. Please follow me! I have little friends and would love to follow who loves reading/writing as well.

G.R. (grcollia) Hi Keara... I'm following you now :o)

K.G. Cummings (kgcummings) | 143 comments My list is growing, and I've had an online computer problem for days now. On Twitter, I can see your profiles but when I click on Follow, it will not connect. It's my computer, as I've not had this problem in the past 5 months or so that I've been twittering! grrrr! ha ha ha When I'm up and running full speed, I'll be following all because I am interested in what everyone is doing to achieve the success desired.
Hugs, Kathy
p.s. it says one of my controls has it blocked. I just have to find out where it is and reactivate it. Don'tcha just love it? ha ha ha Anyone have a hammer?


message 18: by K.G. (new)

K.G. Cummings (kgcummings) | 143 comments ok I did a system restore back to last Wednesday and all is well in TwitterLand. Now does anyone know how I can do a facial restore back to lets say... 1978?

message 31: by Carole (new)

Carole (casutton) | 223 comments Congratulations Dee!

What is all this twittering anyway? Can I join in? what do I have to do? Someone said the best thing about it was it didn't take up too much time, which would be good for me, I don't seem to have a moment to myself these days, what with promoting Ferryman, and getting the next book ready for the publisher to look at, my face to face writing group, and my International Writing Workshop people looking for critiques, my reading has slowed to about half an hour at bedtime! If Twittering is another way of promoting ones book, then I had better look at it.

Carole


message 32: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 460 comments Hey Johanna, Jaimey and Carole,

Thanks so much for your good wishes ;]

I am still giddy from finding out.


message 33: by Author (new)

Author (killthemessengergemini) | 30 comments Hey, good morning Dee.


message 34: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 460 comments Oh Carole,
You MUST twitter. It is just too much fun! The best part, is like you mentioned, it doesn't take up any time at all. Plus, it is so easy to set up.

Go to this link:

http://twitter.com/home

and just fill in the Registration on the top of the page.

Once you have set up your page (they provide different backgrounds and such), you then start "following" different people.

That is when you come back to this thread and add us to your twitter list ;]

EVERYONE is twittering. It is a huge thing in the media at the moment.

If you have any questions about signing up or actually twittering, just post them here and we will help you out :)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hey Chariss. I'm on twitter. My name is Sheils Hendrix and am the author of Bad Company, Head Games and Darkness Falls. I'm new to twitter so I haven't got friends yet but I'd love to hook up with you.




message 44: by Jaimey (new)

Jaimey (jaimeygrant) | 232 comments Ok, color me clueless, but is Twitter an internet thing or cell phone thing? Or is it actually both? Either/or? I'm only just getting used to Facebook and part of me hates it...

*super goofy grin*

<--You have a new Twitter follower :)


message 48: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 460 comments Hey Sheila and Jaimey,

Twitter is a networking site. Like a micro-blog. It only allows you to post short sentences...I think it is only 142 characters long. Like blogging shorthand.

Fun way to keep up on what is going on. You can Twitter on your computer and from you phone.

There is even a way to twitter from Goodreads from your phone while you are in a bookstore, to get book ratings and reviews. Don't ask me how to do that, as I have only been a twitter a week.

Just a fun way to keep in touch :]


message 49: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 460 comments Thanks soOOoo much Stuart for the congrats :)

You are one of my first Twitters (?) that I started to follow :]
