Meredith's Monday Musings: Twitter

Hey Everyone!

Happy Monday and Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day!! How has your day been going? It's been a bit of a slow start for me, but I'm waking up. Today's topic for Meredith's Monday Musing is all about: Twitter.

When I became an author, I set up my blog and Facebook and vowed not to have a Twitter account. I didn't like Twitter. Having to constantly write tweets, and the tweets could only be 160 characters long, it was awful sounding to me.

However, after many authors told me of the importance of having a Twitter account was to being an author, I decided to setup an account.

Once I bit the bullet, I joined the masses of authors and start tweeting about my books frequently and adding many followers. At first, I thought that it was going to be a great marketing tool because I had a decent number of followers.

But, as time went on, I wasn't so sure about how good of a marketing tool Twitter was going to be. If you leave your Twitter account open, within five minutes alone, you'll have fifty new tweets to read. So, it makes me wonder, if there are so many tweets that a person can get in five minutes and each tweet can only be 160 characters long, how effective can Twitter be as a marketing tool.

What do you all think? Is Twitter an effective marketing tool or is it not worth it?

Until I can say 100% that Twitter is an ineffective marketing tool, I will continue to use it. So, for those who like Twitter, don't stress.

That's all for today. I hope that y'all have an awesome day!!


  1. I find Twitter to be a bit potluck but I keep trying. Google Plus is my favorite!
