Twitter Hashtags Part 2

I'm over at From the Write Angle today talking more about Twitter Hashtags that are useful for writers.

I remember joining twitter and signing up for a blog one afternoon a couple of summers ago. I had NO idea what I was doing on either front. Fun times! Eventually I made sense of blogging - tweeting took me a little longer. TweetDeck & TweetChat helped me enormously. Do you use either of those applications? How do you make sense of tweeting?


I'm thinking there will be one more post in November in the series. Any tags you think would be useful to share? Hope you'll pop on over and visit!

  2. Twitter is fun. Hashtags commenting on live events, like the presidential debates, are a lot more fun than the actual events sometimes!

  3. Eventually twitter made more sense. I enjoy connecting with my friends the most and meeting new ones. I also like the helpful links other people tweet. :)

  6. I'm getting better at Twitter, but I'm still not 100 percent sure I'm doing hashtags right. Following them, I mean... ahh... must spend more time on this SM site... :D <3

  7. Old Kitty - it's not for everyone! We really do have to find what works for us :)

    Leigh - it took me quite a while to get to where I feel comfortable with how I'm using twitter. TweetDeck made all the difference for me!! :)

  8. I need to do better on Twitter. I tend to let it go for weeks at a time.

  9. Hashtags can be fun--I tend to make up some silly ones. The real ones I stick to are #amwriting and #amediting.

  10. Michelle - me too - they're a lot of fun! :)

    Susan - that's one of the joys of twitter, I think. There's no pressure to keep up any schedule - so when you pop in, it's the right time! :)

    Stephanie - they are fun! I use both of those all the time and then some silly ones just for fun! :)

  11. I know I'm not using Twitter to its fullest potential. Some day I'll ramp it up.

  12. Tweetdeck slowed down for me, so I just use Twitter on the web. I haven't been in a chat in a while, so I'll have to figure something out if I join one.

  13. Leslie - me neither! But I think one of the best things about twitter is that it doesn't punish you for backing off for a bit!

    Medeia - I can't even imagine using twitter if I didn't have tweetdeck!!

  17. I love Twitter, but it does take some time to get used to it and navigate your way around it! I've met some great people there.

  18. Talli - it seemed to take me months to get the hang of it! I've met a ton of great people there too :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've still never recovered from them messing with Tweetdeck! I don't tweet as often and I love Twitter! :( I'll get back to figuring it out eventually.

  20. Lisa - it took me a while to get the swing of things too - I'm not always a fan of updates and 'improvements'!!!

  23. I'm not on twitter, facebook, linked in, or anything (just one, hardly ever updated blog). I guess I just don't need more white noise in my life? Don't know.
