I’m on the Twitter now

I’m being told repeatedly that it’s great marketing, that all the great writers and public folk out there are doing it, so, sure, why the hell not?

Maybe my balking at starting this has something to do with feeling a little too “with the crowd” or maybe I just don’t especially feel like keeping up with yet another means of communication. At least this one is short, sweet and to the point.

Yes, I’m lilith70.

(I have a confession. As of yesterday, I was adamantly NOT going to get a Twitter account, and then last night, I dreamed I was talking to an agent who had sold my book, but when we were talking about what kind of work I could do to help with the marketing, she asked if I had Twitter. I told her I didn’t, and she got very upset that we were now months if not years behind schedule with the marketing because I’d have to build up my groups from scratch. It bothered me a lot even though I’m sure my subconscious was just trying to put a face to something by calling on my fears, the bastard.)

  1. Twitter is one massive marketing time-suck that I have absolutely no desier to join. From what I’ve gathered it is basically a nonstop stream of commercials, and I get enough of that elsewhere.

  2. depending on how you work twitter it would be the most entertaining thing in the world, or the most horrific spam deliverer in the world.

    I end up just following people that interest me, or people that I find interesting and may want to keep following.

    Having twitter as “advertising” doesn’t make sense, since you end up looking like a spambot if you advertise too aggressively, but it’s a great to keep up with news if you follow the right individuals.
