First I will say I am twitterly ignorant, and I am much more experienced with facebook yet through my research for marketing my first book, Beyond Gavia, I read that twitter is where it's at. I had a twitter account and through the height of irritation I canceled it (yes I was having a temper tran trum). I plan on reactiviating my account; Twitter gives this option for a month after cancelation. I'd like to know how many other of you writers utilize twitter to build your author platform, and how do you go about doing it? I assume you obtain followers by chance or by being known, ect. Any advice on the use of twitter and how I can use fully to my advantage?
