Why Should Authors Twitter?

There are lots of knowledgeable people who highly recommend Twittering as a means of both building your own online platform/presence/following, as well as researching what the online world is talking about. At New Leaf Publishing, we Twitter for a lot of the reasons listed below:

  1. Helps you listen to your industry or profession, whether it’s writing, publishing or the subject matter of your books
  2. Condenses your thoughts into 140 characters, including spaces, helps make you a better writer
  3. Directs you to useful research that may be unfamiliar to you
  4. Improves your technical ability in a tech-savvy world
  5. Helps you know what’s going on in the lives of your friends and readers
  6. Gives you opportunity to reply individually to your readers efficiently and quickly
  7. Like your blog, Twitter gives you a bully pulpit for expressing ideas
  8. Connects you with interesting people and valuable information you may have never discovered
  9. Makes you think about your life
  10. Creates interest in your books and traffic for your blog or website
